The original Celebrity Autobiography has played to sell-out audiences and rave reviews in New York since its opening in September 2008 when Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called the show “big-yuks entertainment” and a “merry compendium of the witlessness and wisdom of the rich and famous.” Joe Dziemianowicz of the Daily News called it a “potent comic cocktail…you weep with laughter.” The New Yorker called it “inspired.” Sam Thielman of Variety wrote, “Audience members hyperventilate. It should lead a long and happy life.” Michael Riedel of the New York Post called it “the funniest show in town, hands down.” And Entertainment Weekly said that Celebrity Autobiography is one of New York’s most buzzed-about shows” while New York magazine called it “brilliant.” The show has been featured by numerous media outlets, including ABC’s “The View” and “Nightline,” NBC’s “Last Call with Carson Daly,” CBS’s “Sunday Morning,” NPR’s “Morning Edition,” CNN’S “American Morning,” New York 1, WNBC’S “News for New York” at 11pm, and Bravo’s “A-List Awards.”
