Born in Westerly, Rhode Island, Ruth Buzzi grew up in Connecticut and relocated to California when she was seventeen to attend the Pasadena Playhouse for the Performing Arts. In addition to studying dance, voice, and theater, she also trained to be a hairdresser as a back-up profession. She began working in theater professionally when she was nineteen, touring with Rudy Vallee. She then relocated to New York, and began a busy career appearing in Off-Broadway productions and touring musical revues. She first came to national attention performing in a comedy duo act with Dom DeLuise. This led to a role on Broadway opposite Gwen Verdon, in “Sweet Charity”. She was subsequently cast in the role that would bring her lasting fame, as a cast member on the hit series, “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In”. She has won numerous acting honors. Buzzi has been an extremely wise investor outside of acting. Ruth and her husband Kent Perkins have invested in a wide range of assets around Texas including a shopping center, a ranch, a farm, oil wells, gas wells, minerals and more. The couple’s car collection alone is reportedly worth $2.5 million. Their collection includes a Rolls Royce, Bentley and several antique Jaguars.

Ruth Ann Buzzi (born July 24, 1936) is an American comedienne 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.
Buzzi was born at Westerly Hospital, Westerly, Rhode Island, the daughter of Rena Pauline and Angelo Peter Buzzi, a nationally recognized stone sculptor. She was raised in Wequetequock, Connecticut, in a rock house overlooking the ocean at Wequeteqouck Cove, where her father owned Buzzi Memorials, a business still operated by her older brother, Harold. Her father was born in Arzo, Switzerland, in the Italian-speaking canton of the Ticino, a few miles from the Italian border. He carved the marble eagles at Penn Station in New York designed by artist Adolph A. Weinman (who also designed the Standing Liberty Eagle half dollar for the U.S. Mint), the granite Leif Erikson memorial in Providence, Rhode Island, the animals seen in relief on the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, and made thousands of tombstones. He was asked to work on the carving of the Presidents on Mount Rushmore but declined, out of a fear of heights. Her mother was born in the United States to immigrants from northern Italy.
Buzzi attended Stonington High School where she gained experience as head cheerleader performing before crowds at athletic events. At 17, she enrolled at the Pasadena Playhouse for the Performing Arts and graduated with honors. She studied voice, dance, and acting, and took courses in cosmetology in case the acting career failed to attain success. Before graduation from college however, she was a working actress with a union card in musical and comedy revues. Her first job in show business was at the age of 19, traveling with singer Rudy Vallee in a live musical and comedy act during her summer break from college; it allowed her to graduate with a treasured union card with Actor’s Equity Union. She moved to New York after graduation and
