sassy and honest
12 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Carrie Fisher does an one-woman show in front of an adoring crowd. She starts with a story of finding a friend dead in her bed five years ago. Somehow, she makes it funny. Then she brings out a big board trying to decipher the relationship of her parents Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds with their connection to Elizabeth Taylor and their various marriages. This is probably the highlight for me. She also brings in her own failed marriage, her family, her addiction, and her mental struggles. Her father Eddie Fisher would die 3 months after the taping. Her raspy dry wit works for the most part especially when she's interacting with the audience. Her monotone voice does grate as the show keeps going. Overall, Carrie is very sassy, charismatic, and scary honest about her life.
