Star of The Bob Hewhart Show and Cancer Survivor
Prior to her role as Maggie the housekeeper on Comedy Central's sitcom That’s My Bush, Marcia Wallace was best known for her Emmy award-winning role as Bart's teacher, Mrs. Krabapple, on The Simpsons. Also well known as Carol Kester from The Bob Newhart Show, a role she reprised guest starring as Murphy Brown's 66th secretary, for which she received an Emmy nomination, Marcia's voice has been heard on several animated series, films, and commercials. She reunited with Murphy as a member of her breast cancer support group and with her old boss on George and Leo.
Wallace has also appeared on such shows as Murder She Wrote, A Different World, Magnum P.I., Taxi, and had recurring roles on Full House, Charles In Charge, and ALF.
Never offstage for long, she toured as Olive Madison in the female Odd Couple. Other stage credits include Sam, The Next Year, Twigs, It Had To Be You, Supporting Cast, Prisoner of Second Avenue, Plaza Suite, GYPSY, Promises Promises, Born Yesterday, all three roles in Last of the Red Hot Lovers, the geriatric version of You’re A Good Man Charles Brown, and most recently, as Ouiser in Steel Magnolias.
Wallace's first Los Angeles stage appearance was her starring role in An Almost Perfect Person, which she also produced. Prior to that, her New York stage credits include Calling In Crazy with Jill Clayburgh and The Fourth Wall, the improvisational comedy group that ran off-Broadway for a year. She has studied with Uta Hagen and David Craig.
In October of 1998, Wallace was featured in a People Magazine cover story on the American breast cancer epidemic along with other celebrities who have survived breast cancer. As a 15-year survivor, Wallace has become a high profile advocate for breast cancer awareness. She recently did a 15-city satellite media tour for a set of audiotapes entitled The Cancer Survival Toolbox.
Wallace has spoken to thousands of men and women across the country sharing her hilarious and moving story, and has finished her first book entitled Don't Look Back, We're Not Going That Way. The title is a quote from her larger than life father. Of course he also used to say, "If I don't see you again, the mule is yours," so not everything he said was deep. The book is subtitled How I Overcame a Rocky Childhood, a Nervous Breakdown, Breast Cancer, Widowhood, Fat, Fire & Menopausal Motherhood and Still Managed to Count My Lucky Chickens.
