Read comments which follow after the synopsis

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  FANNY BRICE, the popular comedian and singer who reigned supreme in "The Roaring 20's"

      returns to earth to reveal fact from fiction in the show "FUNNY GIRL" which was based on her life.

         As 'Fanny', Betty Comora shares anecdotes about her childhood, her marriages and her career.

      The 'ups and downs' of her life are interspersed with several songs - including "Second Hand Rose" and "My Man".

      You'll laugh, shed a tear and share Fanny's philosophy -- 'If you want the rainbow, you must have the rain'.

           Months before Sarasota's Asolo Theatre's "Fanny Brice" show hit the stage in 2012,

       Jazz musician/ Betty wrote, produced and performed this one hour production which is self contained and appropriate

       for small house parties to large theatres.   It's a great choice for community associations, Road Scholar groups and for various fundraisers.

      

                            COST FOR ENTERTAINMENT:

 Betty's fee varies by size of venue and location.   Example: A house party in Sarasota -$100 minimum (10 people at $10 each does the trick) 

     Cost for Community, theater and other performances varies with location and size of audience.

    "FANNY BRICE REVEALS ALL" has been performed at various venues including:
