  • The show has a life of it's own, unlike any other Inside the Actor's Studio episodes. Lipton of course is the master of giving and receiving energy to and from Crystal. Lipton's respect for Crystal is felt throughout the show.

    You watch Billy Crystal fall in love with the magic of improvisation. The memories come from a life enriched by family, jazz and love for what made his life so empty, the loss of his father at such a young age.

    Family members gave him the texture's of laughter and sadness and the joyous ability to laugh with them and himself.

    Billy Crystal listens, then speaks and his connection with the studio audience heightens his comedic timing and awareness. This show gave him the impetus to take his life to the Broadway stage in "700 Sundays." The story of how many Sundays he had with his father before he died. You will laugh, weep and marvel at Billy Crystal's love of laughter and life.
