Fanny Brice was performing at a burlesque house in Brooklyn when she was discovered by Florenz Ziegfeld, who signed her for his Follies. Brice starred in more performances of the Follies than any other artist. Her first fame came from her rendition of the song My Man, which became her trademark. At the Follies she performed with such headliners as W.C. Fields, Will Rogers, and Eddie Cantor. She appeared in one play, Fanny, and is remembered for the comedy character she portrayed for many years, Baby Snooks. The Broadway musical, later a film, Funny Girl is based on her life.
