Whether charging about the skewed faux living room, tucking a leg under herself in a big easy chair, or guiding us through “Hollywood 101” with a pointer, Fisher is an exaggerated, appealing personality decked out in leggings, gilt-trimmed shmatas, and sparkly eye shadow. Berkeley Rep honcho Tony Taccone is at the helm of her quick-moving show, which borrows a page or two from Dame Edna in its folksy engagement of individual audience members. I’m not a fan of shanghaiing the audience, but, as with Dame Edna, there seems to be no resisting Carrie Fisher. The force is with her.
