About

Cindy Williams

Legendary comedic actress

Actress, writer and producer Cindy Williams has starred in some of the most historical movies and television programs in entertainment history. Her career began in the 1970s in prestigious movies like Travels with My Aunt (with Maggie Smith, directed by George Cukor), American Graffiti (with Ron Howard, Harrison Ford, and Richard Dreyfuss and directed by George Lucas), and The Conversation (with Gene Hackman and directed by Francis Ford Coppola).

Once she and Penny Marshall played “loose girls” on the hit TV show Happy Days, the network quickly ordered a spin-off of the dynamic comedy duo. After changing their characters to blue-collar workers in the mid-West, they made their debut in Laverne & Shirley in 1976. The show quickly became the most-watched American television program, surpassing Happy Days in popularity. The show remains in syndication around the world and has a very loyal following of original and new fans.

Cindy continues to work in her first love, the theater, as she performs in musicals all over the country.  She is the author of SHIRLEY, I JEST.

SHIRLEY, I JEST – Speech

Actress, writer, and producer Cindy Williams shares some of her most memorable stories in a funny and heartfelt look at her life — including her role as Shirley Feeney in the iconic TV show Laverne & Shirley.

Cindy Williams is one of the most recognizable names and faces of 1970s & 1980s television. While millions have been entertained by her good-natured personality and comedy antics, she has rarely spoken about her life in entertainment, and how she came to star in one of the most popular shows of all time.

Without privilege or wealth, Cindy worked as a waitress at diners and clubs like The Whisky a Go Go until she finally got her big break, first in movies like American Graffiti and The Conversation, and then in television. In fact, Laverne & Shirley debuted in the number 1 spot with over 60 million viewers — something unheard of in today’s fractured TV landscape!

With her trademark humor, Cindy shares stories of her experiences in her personal life (growing up in a blue-collar family), show business and her encounters with entertainment giants like Gene Kelly, Lucille Ball, Little Richard, Cary Grant, Jim Morrison, Ron Howard, and many more. Of course, she also talks about her professional partnership and personal relationship with her co-star and friend Penny Marshall.
