Carrie Fisher was never more entertaining then when, well, she was Carrie Fisher, on a couch, in some sort of talk show/interview format.

For years, I would travel back in time, thanks to YouTube, and watch old interviews she did from The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson, to David Letterman, to Graham Norton, and she was alway cutting. Even in her younger years, when she was shy and insecure, her wit always had a bite. I mean, she could crack up David Letterman and that’s no small feat.

Carrie’s honesty about her life, her struggles, and the ability to joke about all that she went through, felt supportive and reassuring. If she can joke about this stuff, I can too. I appreciated her bluntness and never thought she was over the top or outrageous. I only ever thought, she’s authentic, I want to be that.

One of my favorite quotes, from her book Wishful Drinking is this:

 “If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable.”

Johnny Carson said, during Carrie’s first appearance on the Tonight Show:

“You’ve got a weird sense of humor, I like that.”
