Review from Kara Edwards Fusco

Carrie is a humble, real comedienne and storyteller. Hearing about the funny and not-so-funny events of her life made her time in rehab and a mental institutional even understandable.

Review from patrice Drury

Ms. Fisher is bright, funny, engaging and totally entertaining. There was never a slow moment. Other than her outfits, the show and her performance was marvelous. A must.

Description

Don’t miss Hollywood legend Carrie Fisher’s recounting of a true and intoxicating tale, told with the same wry wit she poured into bestsellers like Postcards from the Edge. Born to celebrity parents Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, this Tinseltown toddler lands among the stars when she’s cast in a little movie called Star Wars.

But it isn’t all sweetness and light sabers: as a single mom, she also battles addiction, depression, mental institutions, and that awful hyperspace hairdo. Fisher’s tale is a tabloid vivant The Los Angeles Times calls a “Beverly Hills yard sale of juicy anecdotes.” Carrie Fisher’s Wishful Drinking is an uproarious look at a Hollywood hangover and a chance to get ‘Carried’ away!
