CHERISHED QUOTES

Gilda Radner is Super Rad.

When I first started watching Saturday Night Live I immediately fell in love with Gilda Radner. I have re-watched her sketches, read her various biographies and stories, and continue to raise a glass to her extraordinary comedic abilities, charm, and stage presence. Gilda is forever my all time favorite funny gal. To me, she is the epitome of what a female comedienne is all about.  A few of my favorite quotes from the one and only, Gilda Radner.

I’d much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they’re the first to be rescued off sinking ships.

“I base my fashion taste on what doesn’t itch”.

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen”.

– Gilda Radner

The Bedwetter

I love reading books in the bathtub. I find it to be a relaxing way to end the day…Unless of course I doze off waking up to frigid waters and a sopping wet book. Not so fun. Luckily Sarah Silverman’s first memoir, “The Bedwetter Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee” kept me interested from her own written FORWARD to the AFTER FORWARD written by “God”.  I love reading memoirs and biographies, anything from comedians to rock musicians. Reading about people’s lives inspires and encourages me to appreciate my personal struggles and determination in the industry.

What I love about this book, and Sarah Silverman is that she is never afraid to poke fun at her own expense. She’s rude and crude yet sweet and sincere. I am a fan of her potty mouth and her ability to  push the envelope with her shocking and clever humor. In this book, we learn about her struggle with depression as a teenager, her struggles as a comedienne, her battle with soaking the mattress from her childhood into her early adulthood years and the many controversies she’s encountered that have made her the strong and  successful woman that she is today. Here is a an excerpt from her book,
