Show No. 442, Segment 3 with guest Marilyn Michaels
Original Airdates: Mar. 15-17, 2019
Ed welcomes singer, actress, comedienne and impressionist Marilyn Michaels. Marilyn’s new book, How Not to Cook for The Rest of Your Life, is not a cookbook, but it is filled with food for thought on deciding what you want to do in life—as well as what you don’t want to do in life—and lining up your budget and other priorities accordingly. It’s also rich with stories about Marilyn’s encounters with Barbra Streisand, Sammy Davis Jr., Woody Allen, Orson Welles, Liza Minnelli, Burt Reynolds, Joan Crawford, Joan Fontaine, Bette Davis, Howard Stern, Ethel Merman, Julie Andrews, Carol Channing, Jerry Lewis, Donald Trump, and many, many others.
Segment 3, Part 2: Marilyn Michaels, America’s premier woman of a thousand faces and voices, talks about the difference between an impressionist and an impersonator; how she taught Oscar winner Louise Fletcher how to speak like Ingrid Bergman for the movie The Cheap Detective; and why it’s never a good idea to order halibut to go. Autographed editions of Marilyn’s book, How Not to Cook for The Rest of Your Life, are available directly through MarilynMichaels.com.
