Celebrity Autobiography features a first rate comedic ensemble performing from the actual memoirs of a wide range of celebrities.

And whatâ€™s remarkable and unforgettably hilarious â€“ Itâ€™s all in their own words.
Running for three sold out years in New York; Celebrity Autobiography recently won the 2009 Drama Desk Award in the category of Unique Theatrical Experience and the 2010 Bistro Awards. The show has been one of the most critically acclaimed productions ever in the Off-Broadway scene and one of the most â€œbuzzed about showsâ€ of recent years.
