Watch Elizabeth Taylor Reunited in Heaven with Richard Burton and Michael Jackson – from Top Story! Weekly Episode 95: “White Diamonds Aren’t Forever”

March 29, 2011

If we had to lose Elizabeth Taylor…at least it was in a week when the Top Story! Weekly cast including the amazing Artemis Pebdani to do her incredible impersonation! When trying to figure out how best to pay comic homage to Dame Elizabeth, the idea of reuniting her in heaven with Richard Burton was appealing. Using her friendship with Michael Jackson as a bridge I fashioned a little mini-“Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” with the help of a great rewrite from Phillip Wilburn (who came up with a spot-on Richard Burton impression), and the results were something I think is both respectful and pretty darn funny!

Watch “Thank You for Being in Heaven” from Top Story! Weekly Episode 56: “An Inconvenient Split”

The sad loss of Rue McClanahan gave us at Top Story! Weekly a chance to pay tribute with a “Golden Girls” parody. Unfortunately some really funny lines got lost when actors went up, but it’s still pretty funny.

Golden Girls Dorothy Zbornak and Sophia Petrillo get a wonderful surprise in the afterlife, when Blanche Devereaux arrives!
