Madeline Kahn (September 29, 1942 – December 3, 1999) was an American actress, comedienne and singer. She was best-known for her comedic roles in such films as Paper Moon, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, What's Up, Doc?, and Clue.

She is one of the voice actors from Dr. Seuss Beginner Book Video Series.

You will hear her in Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book as one of the Long tailed Tree-Hanging Creatures (on the left) who appears to be the Narrator of the book.

Illness and death

Kahn developed ovarian cancer in 1998. She underwent treatment and continued to work on Cosby and married her long-time companion, John Hansbury, in October 1999.[8] The disease spread rapidly and she died on December 3, 1999.[9] Her body was cremated. A bench dedicated to her memory was erected in Central Park by her husband John Hansbury and her brother Jeffery Wolfson. On March 27, 2013, the 100th episode of the TV series Psych (an episode paying homage to Clue) was dedicated in her memory.
