Carrie Fisher's one woman show is, in a word, hilarious.

Fisher tells it all, growing up in Hollywood, having Eddie Fisher for afather, the Liz-Debbie-Eddie triangle, Princess Leia, her drugaddiction, and her "invitation to a mental hospital." She gives us alook via a big board of Hollywood Genealogy 101 ("but don't worry,Eddie wasn't alone for long...") filled with pictures and arrows of herparents, their spouses, their children, and her own two marriages anddaughter, trying to find out if her daughter and another young man onthe board could date, or were they, in fact, related?

Due to his retention of the Star Wars licensing, Fisher advises us thatGeorge Lucas owns her image and likeness so that "every time I look inthe mirror, I have to pay him a few bucks." And she tells the audience,"If you have a chance to be a Pez dispenser, DO IT." All in all, a funevening, obviously from the mind that brought us the entertaining"Postcards from the Edge." Fisher sees the irony in life and mines itup and down roller coaster ride for all the humor there is. She is,after all, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds, who was nominated for anOscar for "The Unsinkable Molly Brown"..."but lost to Julie Andrews forher multilayered, emotional, deep performance of Mary Poppins."

A funny and poignant exemplification of "Comedy = Tragedy + Time"Reviewed bybrchthethirdVote: 10/10

The 1-2 punch of Carrie Fisher's and Debbie Reynolds' deaths was a fitting, but tragic, end to a year unprecedented in the number of famous/recognizable people who passed on. And for nerds, Carrie's death cut especially deep. As is the case when a celebrity dies, interest in their work surges for a time as people re-explore (or discover for the first time) why we fell in love with these people in the first place. Like most people, I'm familiar with Carrie Fisher through her work as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, but only recently did I realize that she was a prolific writer. WISHFUL DRINKING was her first directly autobiographical work, based on a life which many people might envy if it weren't for all of the mental illness, drug addiction, etc. And based on this stand-up special, she was also a brilliant comedienne. Essentially a chronological overview of her life, it was filled with hilarious anecdotes and delivered with her trademark self-deprecation. Rarely have laughter and sadness coexisted so closely. And now that she's gone, the ending takes on a new poignancy. If you're a Carrie Fisher fan, I highly recommend checking this out if you haven't already (and her books, too).

Carrie Fisher raw and unfiltered. No holds barred!Reviewed bykz917-1Vote: 8/10

The HBO taped production based on Carrie Fisher's memoir of the same name. Wow, what a life. Makes me want to read the book to see what didn't make the documentary. Eddie Fisher passed shortly after the taping and is dedicated to him. On the DVD version there is an hour long interview with her mother, Debbie Reynolds that was fascinating! Now Carrie is a star in the galaxy, interesting documentary for certain!
