American entertainer, an actress and comedienne. She laid her first laugh tracks on TV's "Laugh-In" by asking "Was that a chicken joke," before piling up credits in major stage roles in "Mame" and "Gypsy" to Walt Disney movies, game shows and even a four-year stint as national commercial spokeswoman for Kleenex.

No stranger to the stage, Worley won a scholarship to Midwestern in the drama department, subsequently moving on to Los Angeles College and Pasadena Playhouse. Her entry to the big time came with a Billy Barnes revue that earned her good notices and she was soon understudy to Carol Channing in "Hello, Dolly!" a role she later made her own. Her first of 50 appearances on the Merv Griffin Show landed her the "Laugh-In" gig.

Worley has been married for many years to actor-playwright Richard Perry, raising step-daughter Dana Selange Perry. Richard filed for a divorce after 25 years, citing irreconcilable differences, 2/23/2000 in Los Angeles. She is vice-president of Actors and Others for Animals.
