It really is a triumph!
28 May 2000 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I love Gilda Radner, and was very pleased to be able to get this video. The first time I saw it, I was about 7 and it was on TV at 1 AM in the morning, and I thought it was the funniest thing. This tape of her live theater-like performance is a must-keep, I only hope it comes out on DVD sometime, although I don't know why, but it'd be nice :) There is also a soundtrack to this, and I suggest getting it if you like this tape, there are longer versions to "I Love to be Unhappy" and "Goodbye Saccharin", and also a new song before "Gimme Mick" that do not appear on this tape. So go get both! :) Now only if I could find a poster for Gilda Live...
