Our spies watched Lisa Kudrow perform with The Groundlings last night, reporting that “she brought down the house when she returned to her old stomping grounds.” It bears noting here that our “spies” write press releases for a living.
“As one of the games was being explained, she played dumb: ‘And we make it all up?'” We always loved Phoebe.
She went on to play a dominatrix on a date with Jeremy Rowley in one bit. The second half of the show was a one-act, in which Kudrow played Tessie, a single mother who ran a boarding house in Draper, Utah. Rowley played her nutritionally challenged son, Cricket.
Kudrow looked “good, relaxed, not nervous.” Though we hope one bit she did wasn’t too prescient:
“She played an actress in the twilight of her career doing dinner theater. After being on a failed sitcom.”
