FRUITCAKE FOLLIES is coming!! (it's so fun every year, but this year is going to be extra soooo fun)
Kathy Garver, Scott Travis and I have teamed up to make a FAMILY AFFAIR inspired comedy called AUNT CISSY. I'm writing and co-starring in it as Frenchie. Of course Kathy is Aunt Cissy and Scott is the producer. STAY TUNED!
I'll be at CINEMA DIVERSE, Palm Springs' LGBTQ Film Festival September 23rd and 24th! CHILD OF THE 70s will be screening as part of their OUTweb program on the 23rd. And on the 24th I have a supporting role in Jason Stuart's short drama LIKE FATHER.
Very excited to be back doing PSYCHO THE MUSICAL with my brilliantly talented and fun castmates and production team! This time the fabulous Calpernia Addams joins the family. AND sounds like more cites and dates will be announced soon. We're at the GASLAMP in Long Beach on September 10th. The GASLAMP is usually a concert venue (I think we're their first play) so the sound system is great and the lights rock--literally. Can't wait!
GAYDAR has been the gift that keeps on giving. We made the film 16 years ago and on September 10th it is being honored by the CALIFORNIA INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL for their 20th anniversary as one of their favorite all time top 20 comedy short films. We're so flattered. And just a few days ago a festival in Cambridge, England just asked to screen GAYDAR--which is approximately our 122nd festival with this film. My GAYDAR partner, Larry LaFond and I are so flattered and grateful that people continue to enjoy the film. And a special shout out to the brilliant Charles Nelson Reilly--GAYDAR was his last on camera screen role. If you haven't seen GAYDAR, click on link below to watch for free.
Our experiment with ELECTRICITY as an immersive theater event in a real hotel room at INNduge in Palm Springs was a sold out success! We are thrilled with the audiences' reactions and feedback and so is INNdulge (who were dream hosts). Mel England killed it in his premiere as Brad and Amy Rowell was our terrific director for this reimagining of the show. We'll be back for more shows in October and November!

My favorite TELEVISION ACADEMY event of the year is their party that honors the Emmy Award acting nominees. I always geek out and get a few photos. This time with Tracee Ellis-Ross (BLACK-ISH), Michelle Visage (RuPAUL'S DRAG RACE), Delta Burke (who I've loved forEVAH) and Gerald McRaney (THIS IS US), Kathryn Hahn (TRANSPARENT) and Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart Simpson on THE SIMPSONS). All super nice!
It's always delicious fun to get to chat with the fabulous Sheena Metal about anything on her show THE SHEENA METAL EXPERIENCE, but when I get to talk about ELECTRICITY, well that's just gravy! My new co-star Mel England are joined by Amy Rowell, who is directing this new immersive version of the show inside a real Hotel room at INNdulge in Palm Springs! Click on link to listen. We come in at 1 hour and 6 minute mark if you want to forward ahead to us.
