(tt)    An hilarious evening from such a simple idea

Mario Cantone
Sharon Gless

Rachel Dratch

Kristen Johnston

Celebrities read excerpts from genuine, unedited autobiographies written by celebrities....not a word changed...but with attitude and nuance the results are rockingly funny.  Those being reduced to the remainder bin were 'The Situation' from "Jersey Shore"; Ivana Trump, Ricky Martin (a.k.a.Kiki),  Patti Lupone, Susan Lucci, Madonna and Burt Reynolds.
Geraldo Rivera's foiled attempts to get into Liza's pants over a number of years was hilarious as recreated by Mo Rocca and Mario Cantone.  Kristen Johnston,Sharon Gless and Rachel Dratch slaughtered Tallulah, Ethel and Kathleen Turner. And there were some mashups in which multiple biogs were melded...Cher, Streisand , Parton and George Hamilton got orgasmic about food; Burt Reynolds spat vitriol on Sally Field and Loni Anderson, and the Liz, Mike Todd, Debbie Reynolds, Eddie Fisher mess was the brilliant closer. What a fabulous idea and the list of names the producers can call upon to breathe life into these mostly awful reminiscences is gigantic.  The desire to commit one's own memoirs to parchment is quashed forever.

Here's the shrine to Liz as a palate cleanser
