Kristen Wiig Reads Suzanne Somers Poetry

In honor of National Poetry Month, we dug up a video of Saturday Night Live veteran Kristen Wiig reading from Suzanne Somers‘ poetry collection, Touch Me.

For this funny performance embedded above, Wigg recited three poems: “Two Week Love,” “Extra Love,” and “The Quiet Loneliness of Being Alone.”

Wiig delivered this entertaining narration for an off-Broadway theatre project called, “Celebrity Autobiography.” This show features a rotating cast of actors and comedians who read directly from celebrity memoirs.

Other past readers include House M.D. actress Lisa EdelsteinSex & the City actor Mario Cantone, and another alumna from the SNL cast, Rachel Dratch.

Workman Publishing released Somers’ book back in 1980.
