“If my life wasn’t funny, it would just be true and that is completely unacceptable.”
This Sunday night, HBO will premiere Wishful Drinking, a documentary centering on Carrie Fisher, which includes footage from her one-woman show. We have some clips from the special, which might interest some Star Wars fans out there.
The documentary combines archival footage with her stage performance, which was taped last summer. If you’re interested in learning George Lucas’ rules about underwear in space, you might want to check this documentary out. From the trailers and clips (below), it seems as though there will be plenty of comedy in this documentary, however she’ll also be addressing some of the harder times in her life, including her bipolar diagnosis and her decision to have shock-therapy.
Wishful Drinking airs Sunday, December 12, 2010 at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
