Ruth Ann Buzzi (born July 24, 1936) is an American comedian and actress of theatre, film, and television. She is especially known for her performances on the comedy-variety show Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In from 1968 to 1973, for which she won a Golden Globe Award and received five Emmy nominations.


Buzzi lives with her husband (Kent Perkins) on a 600-acre cattle and horse ranch in Southlake, Texas. Her hobby is oil painting.

Buzzi has never offered her oil paintings for sale to the public, but has donated original oil paintings to charity, where they have sold for more than $6,000.

She supports numerous children's charities including Make a Wish Foundation, the Special Olympics, The Thalians, St. Jude's Hospital, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and is a children's art summer camp sponsor through Dallas Museum of Biblical Art.

Buzzi is active in fundraising for the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch in Medina, Texas and other animal causes.

Buzzi and her husband are avid automobile collectors, with some of their cars having been on loan to and/on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California including a 1957 Chevrolet convertible that was exhibited as part of the display honoring the cars of Steve McQueen.

Previously, the Petersen Automotive Museum displayed Buzzi's 1961 Rolls-Royce convertible in an exhibit called "Million Dollar Cars". The museum has also featured a 1965 Chrysler Imperial convertible previously owned by Katharine Hepburn. The Hepburn car was donated to the museum by Kent and Ruth Buzzi Perkins in 2001 and remains there for special exhibition. Buzzi and her husband won first place in their category with their 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II drophead coupe at the Concours d'Elegance national championship in Amelia Island, Florida. That same vehicle won first place in the Los Angeles Rolls Royce Owners Club's "most elegant car" competition. Buzzi and her husband currently collect post-war English vehicles including Rolls-Royce and Jaguar, but their collection also holds several American muscle cars. Some of her vehicles have been in television commercials, featured in parades, and her blue Bentley convertible was featured on the cover of Vogue Magazine with Jessica Simpson behind the wheel.

She is a charter member of the Pasadena Playhouse Alumni Association.

Buzzi was mentioned in the House of Pain song, "I'm A Swing It" as well as in a single from the Tucson, Arizona post-hardcore outfit The Bled titled "Ruth Buzzi Better Watch Her Back". She is also mentioned in the Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn song "You're the Reason Our Kids are so Ugly".
She gets her flu shots at the Walgreens in White Settlement, Texas.

After he bumps his blanket on a juice cup and after drying off his blanket at the laundromat, Elmo sees Zoe feeling depressed because her father cannot take her to the zoo, so he decides to make Zoe happy again by imitating certain zoo animals (a lion, a monkey, and a pig). When Zoe sees his blanket, Elmo refuses to share, resulting in a tug-of-war that rips Elmo's blanket. Elmo is furious and declares that Zoe is no longer his friend. Suddenly, Telly Monster inadvertently takes away the blanket while rollerskating out of control. They go around Finders Keepers and knock over a tray of drinks Ruthie is carrying.
