Movie Info

Director Mike Nichols makes no effort to inject camera trickery or "mise en scene" in Gilda Live. This is a live comedy concert by the peerless Gilda Radner, and that is enough; Nichols merely records this wonderful lady in action. All of Gilda's standard characterizations -- Emily Latella, Roseanna Roseannadanna et. al. -- are here in full force, a lot raunchier than when seen on TV. Everyone's favorite bit in this comedy catalogue is Gilda's specialty number "Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals." On hand to allow Gilda to take a breather once in a while is Don Novello, aka Father Guido Sarducci.

To have another ninety minutes of Lisa Loopner and Emily Litella, with Judy Miller and Roseanne Roseannadanna and Candy Slice is a joy.

Audience Reviews for Gilda Live


Just like SNL! But without the other cast members! Seriously, watch the first five seasons on DVD, as this is just sad. Within the context of the show, Radner's characters were fine, but on stage, they lack the urgency and unpredictability of live TV. What we have with Gilda Live is a certain staleness or sense of safety, which is unfortunate, as many of her careers were funny on the small screen before their last hurrah here.
