Biography

Since the dawn of the medium, classic sitcoms always required supporting characters with wit, charm, and comedic timing that often complemented the show's lead stars. Joyce Randolph was one such actress, who fully committed to her role as loyal, strong-willed and bossy housewife Trixie Norton on the working-class comedy series "The Honeymooners" (CBS, 1955-56). She rounded out the talented quartet that included Jackie Gleason as big-mouthed bus driver Ralph Kramden, Audrey Meadows as his no-nonsense wife Alice, and Art Carney as their lanky neighbor and Trixie's husband, Ed Norton. Even though she did not appear in every episode like her co-stars, she brought a hilarious realism to Trixie that made it hard for the audience to forget her even if she was not onscreen. Randolph, who was also an accomplished Broadway performer, was the last surviving "Honeymooners" cast member and remained one of the most iconic actresses from the Golden Age of television.
