"Star Struck": A Dramatic Reading by Bea Arthur



Bea Arthur's final public appearance came in August 2005, when she gave this stirring recitation of select passages from Pamela Anderson's gripping book* Star Struck at that year's Comedy Central Roast...

Featuring - as participant Lisa Lampanelli might say, 'a veritable Who's That of comedy' - including Jimmy Kimmel, who was the roast master, as well as Courtney Love, Adam Carolla, Nick DiPaolo, Greg Giraldo, Elon Gold, Eddie Griffin, Lady Bunny, Tommy Lee, Jeffrey Ross, Sarah Silverman, Andy Dick as her plastic surgeon, and a pre-taped appearance by David Spade it really was a star-dudded - er, star-STUDDED - event.

No one earned her kudos that night, though, like the woman, the legend, Bea Arthur...

*At least I assume that's what you're supposed to be doing to yourself when you read it.
