Carrie Fisher’s wit

Share

In 2011 Carrie Fisher was made an Honorand of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, the school she attended in 1973. She was introduced by her mother Debbie Reynolds. Carrie Fisher walked up to the lectern and said to 3500 people, “My name is Carrie Fisher and I’m an alcoholic. Oh fuck, wrong room.” 1500 newly minted graduates screamed with laughter. 2000 parents…not so much.
Rest in peace Miss Fisher.
