Isn't She Great

The Beautician and the Beast

The Beautician and the Beast
Isn't She Great celebrates women in comedy—and SAG presidents who stand up against AI—with THE BEAUTICIAN AND THE BEAST (1997)! Co-hosted by Elizabeth Teets and Anthony Hudson, this special edition opens with stand up by Seattle’s Bernice Larson!

THE BEAUTICIAN AND THE BEAST stars Fran Drescher as Joy Miller, a beautician who gets mistaken for a science teacher and offered a job in the Eastern European nation of Slovetzia, where Boris Pochenko (Timothy Dalton), the country's gruff dictator, hopes to improve his image by hiring an American tutor for his children. A hilarious mash-up of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and THE SOUND OF MUSIC, with a dash of all-too-relevant fascism for fun, THE BEAUTICIAN AND THE BEAST is an increasingly reevaluated cult classic starring one of Hollywood's most hilarious and heroic stars.
