In this quirky, engaging and at times stupidly funny trip down memory lane, she shares her experiences of being adrift in a world of wealth, fame and (albeit often minor) celebrity.
Like Yentob on his chair, the show revels in its own clumsiness. Christie, an endearing mix of simmering cynicism and wide-eyed innocence, is unafraid to look stupid on stage.Despite flashes of darkness – “I like life, but sometimes I do wish I could just die” – she emerges from her stint on the periphery of that tragic and hollow thing, the ‘showbiz world’, with a sense of hope and her dignity in tact.
Best of all, she reveals, her husband forgave her for her ‘sins’.
A happy ending in stand-up? It must be a first.
