Early life and careerEdit
Mitzi J. Steiner was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to a Jewish family. She began her career in show business in 1948 when she was 16. In 1964, she and Brill, who are a husband-and-wife comedy team, were booked to be on the Ed Sullivan Show, the same night The Beatles were on. Ed Sullivan asked the duo to change their act to accompany the crowd of largely teenagers, and the result was a mostly silent crowd. McCall recalls: "It [the show] was a nightmare. We [she and Brill] just about wanted to kill ourselves.” However, many years later, McCall claimed it was an honor: “We [she and Brill] were there when the world changed.”
McCall has acted on Laugh In and has more recently transitioned to a voiceover career, providing the voices of Mother Goose on Mother Goose and Grimm and Glypto in the film Ice Age. On Regular Show, she provided the voice of the Warden of the Internet, named the Librarian in the credits. Her voice acting agency is Cunningham, Escott, Slevin & Doherty (CESD).

Brill, who was born on McCall and Brill's eighth wedding anniversary; Jennifer later became a yoga instructor. McCall resides in an undisclosed location with her husband.
