Last Wednesday, Liza Minnelli appeared on Larry King Live. I know: who cares, right? I mention it not as a disciple of Liza or a fan of musical theater (I couldn't be further from either), but as someone who loves a good trainwreck. Which is what she offered, sorta.
I distilled the hour-long interview down to its most essential elements: Liza's various, throaty and broad outbursts and fits of laughter. What follows is my highlights reel of her pearls of nonsense, uploaded to YouTube for your viewing (and my bandwidth) ease. Can you really resist the promise of nonsense on a Monday?
Because this one-minute-37-second video is composed of 18 different clips, there's a lot of context raping. Her reactions and outbursts might not make sense, but don't worry -- they didn't really in the first place.
My favorite parts are "I work with retarded children" and when she cracks up at the guy when he says that he's a musical-theater major.
I'm not saying she's drunk, but she's real nice.
