Bette Midler On The Need For More Characters On Her TV Show:

Bette Midler On The Need For More Characters On Her TV Show: “We need more and funnier characters. I think I want more comic actors around me. I want a bigger ensemble. I want some help in the house.

I have three people sitting around the table.” (Chicago Sun-Times. January 17, 2001)

Bette Midler On Working In A Collaborative TV Atmosphere:

Bette Midler On Working In A Collaborative TV Atmosphere: “I’ve learned to wait until the other actor’s lips stop moving. That’s the most important thing I’ve learned. I’ve (worked) solo for 30 years and people don’t talk back to me. So I talk and talk and talk. And now all of a sudden I’m in a situation where I’m talking and then I notice that they’re talking and I actually have to listen and wait till they’re done.” (Chicago Sun-Times. January 17, 2001

Bette Midler On Her Desire For Her TV Series:

Bette Midler On Her Desire For Her TV Series: ” My overarching desire is to really make people laugh the way they haven’t laughed in years. I don’t like mild TV The true test of a comedian is to make you laugh until you cry. To me that’s great art. No one did this better than the late Lucille Ball. I knew her. I adored her. I don’t have half the skills that she had. For my money, that’s the standard. The bar for great, intelligent comedy has always been Lucy.” (Knight Ridder/Tribune News Service, January 9, 2001 Read More
