The Very Best of NYC Comedy/Variety

Night of a Thousand Judys, Homo Comicus and Empire Burlesque

The Meeting*, the acclaimed comedy/variety show hosted by Justin Sayre, will hold its second annual Pride month benefit for the Ali Forney Center, the nation’s largest organization dedicated to serving homeless LGBT youth. The Meeting* is a “gay” romp through politics, sexual and otherwise, social news, music, skits, and other important life-changing events. This special June 13 presentation of The Meeting* at Joe’s Pub, entitled Night of a Thousand Judys, celebrates the music of Judy Garland. With special guests to be announced.

June 1 at the Gotham Comedy Club, Homo Comicus returns with BUSTED, and great LGBT comics will be bustin’ out all over in this special Pride Month kick-off show, including Jessica Kirson, Jay D’Ercola, Jackie Monahan, Yamaneika Saunders and Neil Thornton.  Hosted by Bob Montgomery, this is one installment of the popular series not to be missed!

Empire Burlesque, a sizzling burlesque dinner show that takes over Drom the first Saturday of every month, returns June 4. This spectacular spectacle stars “The Italian Stallionette” Angie Pontani, rock god Corn Mo, “The Tappin’ Tornado” Helen Pontani, and “The Dancing Sensation” The Maine Attraction, with special guests, a DJ, full dinner, cocktail menus available, and so much more. All the makings of a hot Saturday night tied up with a bow at
one glittery event.

After what seemed to be an unbeatable performance in her 2010 “Lady Gaga” Tour, Kate Clinton once again pulls out all the stops with her new show “The Glee Party”.  Kate describes the new show as “A rolling Restore-to-Sanity rally… where problems are solved in less than an hour and people break into flash mobs of song and dance for no apparent reason.”  WomenTwoWomen will honor Kate’s accomplishments at the after-show reception with what producer Michele Vallone calls “a tribute only worthy of Kate.” A portion of the show’s proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, and VIP tickets to an after-show reception with Clinton are available.
