If you’ve ever read Motley Crüe’s The Dirt, you know the power of a properly awful autobiography. Writers Eugene Pack and Dayle Reyfel saw gold in these stories, and created Celebrity Autobiography, a monthly reading series that features comedians reading straight from tell-alls by Hollywood characters like Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna, Vanna White, Hedy Lamarr, Britney Spears and Zsa Zsa Gabor. The series has run for three years in New York City, receiving acclaim from the New Yorker and New York Times, and it now comes to Sonoma County for the first time. Featured readers include original SNL cast member Laraine Newman, Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s, anyone?) and Fred Willard, who we hope will be remembered more for his hilarious turn in Best in Show than for being arrested under suspicion of masturbating at Hollywood’s Tiki Adult Theater. Celebrity Autobiography spins words into laughs on Saturday, Jan. 12, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $40—$59. 707.546.3600.
