Incandescent Bulb Broken Off In Receptacle

Tips to get it out, please? Glass part snapped off at the threaded end. Thanks, ladies and gentlemen.

Turn circuit off and use a large screwdriver to unscrew the bulb stem.
I've read use a potato but not sure how well that would work.
Sometimes a pair of needle nose pliers can be helpful.

Pete: It's fixed. Once we got the broken glass out of the bulb buttom, a bent-nose needle nose pliers did the trick. Thanks.
