I'd always heard stories about Carrie Fisher, how she is so very funny and a great writer. So I was interested in watching "Wishful Drinking" (HBO, 9 tonight), a presentation of Fisher's autobiographical one-woman show, which she wrote and performs.
Fisher's fierce intelligence and sense of humor definitely come across in the show. She's an astute observer of people and culture and life's absurdities.
Despite that, I didn't find "Wishful Drinking" entirely successful.
