B-Boy Limping


Richard Kind makes a great Vanna White…

…which Katie and I found out when we checked out Celebrity Autobiography: In Their Own Words last Monday at the Triad Theater.

Celebrity Autobiography is the brainchild of comedy writer and actor Eugene Pack, and features a line-up of rotating performers reading from the actual words and stories written by the famous and the infamous. Here’s a pic of Rachel Dratch reading from Joan Lunden’s autobiography “Good Morning, I’m Joan Lunden”:

And here’s video from an older performance.

Other readers last Monday included Kristen Johnston, Scott Adsit, Richard Kind, and Sherri Shepherd, who was pretty excellent as Madonna.

Here’s the thing about Sherri though, (who, by the way, looked amazing): Judging by some of the things that comes out of her mouth on The View I’m not so sure she’s in the greatest position to be making fun of anyone else’s narcissism or lack of common sense. That said, however, she was funny. And perhaps pretty smart. Because by being so close to this Celebrity Autobiography venture, she ensures that nobody up there will be reading excerpts from her new self-help book, Permission Slips, anytime soon.

(Somebody get me that book!)
