"Hilarious! Hugely entertaining! For Carrie Fisher, laughter is indeed the best medicine!"
— The Boston Globe
"Hilarious! Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking is loaded with one-liners. Two hours of pure dish — and the way Fisher serves the stuff, it couldn't be juicier!"
— The Boston Herald
"Fisher's ironic celebration of the success-studded train wreck of her life will keep you doubled over for two hours. There seems to be no resisting Carrie Fisher! The force is with her!" — The Boston Phoenix
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!
