Beyond the Spotlight: On the Road With Phyllis Diller

4.86  ·  Rating details ·  7 ratings  ·  2 reviews
As Robin Skone-Palmer approached the mansion on Rockingham Avenue one hot September afternoon, she didn’t know what to expect. “Ask for Phyllis Diller,” the employment agent had said.

Curious as much as nervous, Robin studied the beautiful house. Three-and-a-half hours later, she walked away wondering if she’d just stepped into Alice’s Wonderland.

This book is not just a good read, it's a fun read. Robin Skone-Palmer has done a great job taking the reader behind the spotlight, as it were, with one of the world's most popular and beloved comedians. From Las Vegas to London to Puerto Rico to Arkansas, she offers up anecdotes about Phyllis Diller that left me laughing out.

Besides that, the book gives us a look at the human side of the renown comedienne, her quirks as well as her qualities.

Apr 09, 2013 rated it it was amazing! What a FUN-ny slice of the life of a "star-sitter." This is a MUST-READ for anyone who remembers and loves Phyllis Diller, or is interested in a brutally honest picture of a traveling celebrity. Skone-Palmer's own humorous style of wicked (yet restrained) WIT makes this a smirky read with a sweet-smile ending.
