Edie Adams 1927-2008

Probably best known as the Muriel cigar lady and Ernie Kovacs’ widow, television queen and Tony Award-winning actress Edie Adams has passed away.

She also gained fame bringing Daisy Mae to life in the Broadway musical production of “Li’l Abner,” based on Al Capp’s classic comic strip.

She appeared in dozens of television series up until a few years ago and also worked in film in the likes of Evil Roy Slade, The Honey Pot and even The Oscar.
