In the late 70s, Madame, along with her personal assistant Wayland Flowers, made saucy jokes on shows like Hollywood Squares and her own syndicated series, Madames Place, only to be forced into retirement when Flowers died in 1978.
Now, Madame is alive again thanks to Flowers friend Marlena Shell, whos spent the last few years trying to find a man worthy of having his hand up Madames backside.
She found it in Rick Skye, who actually started out writing Madames new show, Madame With An E, before being asked to learn the ins and outs of puppeteering.
Skye says the task wasnt easy and while he had the voice down, he needed months of intense practice before feeling comfortable with the movements.
Madame begins her comeback at the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City and shes ready to be a wild tabloid staple.
As she puts it, Im the original Amy Winehouse. Just call me Granny Winehouse!
