MEETING MEN JUST COMES WITH COMIC'S TERRITORY

One of the perks of being a comedienne is that you get to meet a lot of men.

At least, that's what Rita Rudner says. "I was so shy around men, but as a comic I could relate to them," she told People magazine.She says she once had "half a date" with fellow comedian Jerry Seinfeld, but "he told me he wasn't a good risk in a relationship, so we just stayed friends." Rudner met her husband, producer Martin Bergman, at one of her shows. She says the couple isn't planning on starting a family any time soon.

"Pregnancy doesn't thrill me. Life is tough enough without someone kicking you from the inside."
