It’s Whoopi Goldberg!
I was fortunate enough to have the chance to see Whoopi Goldberg perform at the Centre in the Square on the weekend. I will admit, it wasn’t exactly what I expected. I wasn’t expecting her to be so candid about menopause and other personal things as she was. I mean, most stand-up comedians can be pretty vulgar…but I wasn’t expecting that from Whoopi. The audience sure loved it. You could hear almost everyone roar with laughter during her 45 minute set.
Most interesting was her 45 minute question and answer period where she gave insight into her acting, movies, family & more. She said Kermit the Frog was her favourite interview, she was humble about the fact that she has won an Oscar, Tony, Grammy & Emmy award…and is one of only 22 people to have all 4 and she seemed genuinely happy to be sharing information with people. I learned a lot of things that I did not know about her before attending the show and can say I was genuinely impressed with how ‘cool’ she was about it all. It gave me a new found respect and appreciation for people like her.
If you like Whoopi and you have the chance to see her, do so.
