The evening, which benefited the Actors Fund of America, featured the talents of Emmy winner Kristen Johnston as well as Tony Roberts, Jackie Hoffman, Seth Rudetsky, Mary Testa, Cheyenne Jackson, Richard Kind, Jack Plotnick, Dayle Reyfel and Eugene Pack. Celebrity Autobiography, which was created by Eugene Pack, features actors who "'interpret' the actual words and stories written by the famous and the infamous."

In a statement creator Pack said, "I would listen to a lot of books-on-tape, particularly autobiographies, and was astounded at what people would write about. When I would get a hold of one of these books and read it out loud to friends, they'd insist I was making it up. But people actually wrote these words! So I decided to put the material up in front of an audience, knowing that it would be extremely entertaining."
