The LA Gay & Lesbian Center aka the House of Hues aka the El Gay aka the the (Yes I) WILLtern aka the Club (I never say) NOkia–is THE performance venue for all of our most treasured queer legends. And I DO use that term loosely.
I was tardy in reporting one of the funniest queens this side of Anaheim, a one Miss Leslie Jordan, who was performing her one woman show, Full of Gin and Regret. Look her ass up on the google-net, facebook her, suck her dick and receive $75 or a new pair of sneakers.
Have no fear cause the queen of quirk, our very own Major Tom Space Oddity, Miss Beth Lapides (Lah-pee-dis) is beaming into the Renberg Theatre on Saturday, January 9, for one-night of her solo show, 100 % Happy 88% of the Time.
Bethy started out on those mean, penis-centric Hollywood comedy club stages back in the day and DID THINGS HER WAY… Her UN-CABARET comedy workshops provided me a soothing environment, not unlike Desitin on a fat lady’s thighs, in which to get my start speaking my gay mind to the peoplez. And look where I am now! I got a blog, some videos on YouTube, and just filled out $755 worth of grad school applications. Don’t hate the player, hate the game, y’all.
Speaking of PLAYAS…don’t nobody fuck with the real queen bee…whew lawdy my fingers are on fire just typing her name, MISS JENIFER LEWIS, as I live and breathe. She started out on Broadway as one of Bette Midler’s Harlettes and has since become known as the black mother of Hollywood. She sings, she acts, she dances…she holds nothing back; just the way we like it. So definitely see her show, HOT FLASH, this February.
