“Amazing show…my highest rating of four hats! And hats off to this fabulous, funny, wild ride through showbiz with a remarkable woman! I love this show and so will you!”—Jan Wahl, KCBS radio / KRON TV / Alice radio “Convulsively funny…A lightsaber-sharp comedy about the dark side of celebrity…Fisher is a cheerfully tart one-liner machine, regaling us with the deadpan jewels that made her autobiography, Postcards from the Edge, twinkle…The lightsaber-sharp comedy will be irresistible to anyone who knows his Jedi from his Jabba

“Carrie Fisher pioneers a strange form of tabloid theater, telling often hilariously sardonic and inappropriate tales of the many marriages of her mother Debbie Reynolds and father Eddie Fisher, numerous step-parents, marriage to Paul Simon, addictions and a great deal more in a two-hour autobiographical solo…It’s definitely funny. Fisher knows how to write wickedly comic material and, better still, how to deliver it. It’s also quite brave…Princess Leia is just telling her life story—as honestly, sardonically, fetchingly, caustically and comically as she can.”
