Anyone know of this female standup comedian's name?

I am trying to think of a name of female comedian in late 70s, early 80s. I think I saw her on Tonight Show, SNL, and other similar shows. She was short, had dark hair (I think). She would rattle off jokes in detached monologue tone, and before audience got it and started to laugh, she'd move on to next one. Timing was "intentionally" off so much so that I thought she was messing up her routine. Sorry I can't be more descriptive. Anyone remember her name or suggest one?

Almost sounds like Rita Rudner, but she was a few years later.

+1. That would have been my guess as well.

Bingo! Thanks, stepford. Boy, this forum is good.

Or, then again, it was Wendy Liebman that I was thinking about. When I looked up Rita Rudner on YouTube, WL's name came up also.

female comedian

There was one named Margaret Smith (I think that was her last name). She had a really dry, almost mournful, delivery.

Sounds like a female version of Steven Wright.
