    As always, Sonny starts out the show with a joke or two, or if he's lucky, even three jokes about Cher, then Cher loses her patience and bites back with a killer. This time, a rope magically appeared beside Cher. She pulled it and, like in many comedy shows, there was a trap door, and Sonny fell straight in. Darn it! But the good part was instead of singing, Vamp, Lady Luck was sung by Cher and three skits were performed in between. One of them included, 'At the Laundrette', the funniest skit, which made me laugh, especially at that preppy women in that leopard skin giving that 'no fashion' girl that worked at the laundrymat tips on how to be fashionable. Then at the end, where Sonny and Cher's daughter, Chasidy comes to the show to say goodnight. But, wondering how Cher got Sonny to fall through the trap door was her question. Cher showed her how, and now Chasidy faced two options. Be a good girl, or be a little devil. And she chose, to be a little devil by pulled the rope and Sonny ended up falling through the trap door. It was so hilarious, you should of seen it!moreless
