Who Made Whoopi?

Whether you remember her best for the headgear she wore as Guinan on Star Trek: TNG or her freaky threesome with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in Ghost, there’s no question Whoopi Goldberg is a woman who’s hard to forget. This comedian, actor, humanitarian, talk-show host, and activist (we could keep going) has won every award out there, from Oscar to Grammy to Golden Globe. Her sharp tongue makes even The View almost worth watching. This weekend, get your fill of her diabolical wit and scathing stand-up at the Adrienne Arsht Center (1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami), where Whoopi will take the stage for some pop-culture smackdowns and biting banter. Expect a lot of laughs from this comedy legend in her 95 minutes onstage. Remember when she played a singing nun? Dated Ted Danson? Defended Mel Gibson? So many memories. This is her only South Florida appearance, so now is your sole chance to indulge your Gen X nostalgia. Showtime is 8 p.m., and tickets cost $50 to $95. Call 305-949-6722 or visit arshtcenter.org.
