SATURDAY:

    MCs: Bridget Everett and Kenny Mellman

With more guests to be confirmed for each evening! PLUS, the top of each evening will be meta-framed by a signature extravagant welcome from the epic and glittery Salley May, AGA coordinator.

Tony-nominated Kenny Mellman was the co-creator and “Herb” half of the internationally acclaimed duo Kiki and Herb. His solo show “Kenny Mellman is Grace Jones” has played NYC, London, Portland, Philadelphia, and both Melbourne and Sydney Australia. At Least It’s Pink, the show he co-wrote with Bridget Everett and Michael Patrick King (Sex and The City) was one of TimeOutNY’s top 10 Cabaret shows of 2006. He is an Obie, Bessie, Glammy, Glaad Media and MAC award winning performer. He wrote a children’s musical for the Soho Theatre in London and in 2008 wrote and performed a workshop of his musical “Say Seaboy, You Sissyboy?” at Dixon Place as one of their Mondo Cane Commissions. With Bridget Everett, Neal Medlyn, Brendan Kennedy and Ada Calhoun, he created Our Hit Parade which was named one of the best cabaret shows of 2008 and continues as a monthly show at Joes Pub. He wrote the music and lyrics and played the score for Jennifer MIller’s Cracked Ice at PS122. Recently, he was named one of TimeOut New York’s 40 favorite people in NYC.

Bridget Everett has been dubbed “Wynona Judd meets Melissa Etheridge, via the local bar floozy, on a rocket ship out of Twin Peaks” by The Village Voice’s Michael Musto. Having grown up in Manhattan, Kansas, Bridget received her degree in vocal
performance at Arizona State University. Soon after, she promptly abandoned it all to move to New York, sing karaoke and work as a waitress. Bridget played Lynn Chenney in Taylor Mac’s Red Tide Blooming at PS122. She is the cohost of Automatic Vaudeville at Ars Nova, has performed on the Murray Hill show at Mo Pitkins, sung with the Isotoners, with Jim Andralis and Larry Krone, and plays R Kelly’s sister in the show Neal Medlyn Plus Kenny Mellman Equals R Kelly. You can also catch her wearing gold lame in Times Square along side the Varisty Interpretive Dance Squad in Moby’s music video “new york, new york.”
