Jaya Subramanian died at age 77 of an acute aorta aneurysm on April 26, 1989 in Beverly Hills. She was known as The First Lady of Television, The Queen of Comedy… sorry, that was Lucille Ball’s bio. Jaya loves working with The DR! Past on-stage productions with him have included Second City This Week and Three Tables. This Chicago native graduated from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. Before moving to LA, she worked with theatres such as The Next, Northlight and Rasaka Theatre Company. Sometimes Jaya is on TV, the internet, the radio. WATCH AND LISTEN.
