Joyce Randolph was born Joyce Sirola in Detroit, Michigan in 1925. She was only nineteen when she joined a road company of Stage Door. From there she went to New York and a revival of Abie's Irish Rose, and later, a Broadway run of A Goose for rhe Gander with Gloria Swanson. Although she continued to appear in Broadway musicals through the 1940's and into the 1950s, she became increasingly active in early TV, appearing with such superstars as Eddie Cantor, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, Danny Thomas, and Fred Allen. From appearances on General Electric's early experimental television programs, she went on to roles on Four Star Revue and Colgate Comedy Hour. Even before The Honeymooners, Joyce Randolph worked with Audrey Meadows in a summer-stock production Of No, No, Nanette. She first worked with Jackie Gleason on Cavalcade of Stars in a serious role, and was later called back to play Trixie Norton -- a role which she continued to play until The Honeymooners left New York. In 1993, Mrs. Randolph was named U.S.O. Woman of the Year for her dedication to the organization and its cause.
