The international smash hit comedy where outrageous and true celebrity memoirs are acted out live on stage by some of the funniest people in entertainment, Celebrity Autobiography is an evening of jaw-dropping, hard-to-believe vignettes excerpted straight from actual celebrity tell-alls: from the 'he-said, she-said' accounts of Burt and Loni; signature mash-ups that combine the "Mom"oirs of famous moms such as Ivana Trump, Kathie Lee Gifford and Kris Jenner; a music memoir segment combining the words of Bieber, Beyonce and beyond; a Sports Match Up with Arnold, Tiger, and Namath; Cher, Streisand, Dolly and Celine Dion all expressing their passion for food; LL Cool J, Miley Cyrus, and Ricky Martin addressing who they "really are;" to a hilarious ensemble "playlet" edited together from the memoirs of the most famous love triangle in Hollywood history-Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, and Eddie Fisher. Audiences leave the show asking "Did these celebrities really write that?" Yup--we are not making any of it up!
Other major characters that have been featured in CelebrityAutobiography include: Snooki, Susan Lucci, The Situation, David Hasselhoff, Melissa Gilbert, VAnna White, Kenny Loggins, Madonna, Britney Spears and so many more.
