Description by OLDIES.com:
In 1979, Gilda Radner threw a summer-long party at Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre. Everybody came: Lisa Loopner, Judy Miller, Emily Litella, Rhonda and the Rhondettes, Candy Slice, Roseanne Roseannadanna. And many thousands of cheering theatergoers celebrating Gilda's hilarious, knockout Brodway debut. Filmed by another award-winning stage/screen comedy legend, director Mike Nichols, Gilda Live showcases the comedienne's "Saturday Night Live" alter-egos in edgy, crazy material not even the Not Ready for Prime Time Players were ready for. Also on hand are "Late Night with David Letterman"'s Paul Shaffer, playing straight man and playing up a musical storm, and Father Guido Sarducci, ever the irreverent reverend. Join them as the late, great Gilda does what she does best - be flat-out funny.
Live Broadway performance is filmed for video. Guest spot with Father Guido Sarducci.
