Daniel Nardicio presents Lady Bunny in TransJester
In addition to new parodies which re-work selections from Adele, Rent and Bruno Mars to hilarious, effect punctuated by zany Laugh-In style zingers, Bunny has widened her---don't go there!--repertoire to include some actually insightful social commentary. (Well, she thinks it's insightful, anyway.) Trashing the current overemphasis on political correctness, Bunny breaks down some of the latest buzzwords that we're all supposed to remember for every for every occasion as we "evolve." Sometimes, Bunny feels, that we're actually evolving away from common sense! Take the new name for our community--LGBTIA. Does anyone even know what that means?
While Bunny shies away from politics in this performance--because one train wreck on stage per night is enough--she doesn't shy away from gender politics and the new lingo we're suddenly forced to learn every time Will Smith's son puts on a dress. After Caitlyn Jenner reached out to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz to become his "trans ambassador", Bunny feels that it's time for the gloves to come off while addressing that farce.
And Bunny may shock you with revelations about her own gender identity. "She" asks pertinent questions about cultural appropriation prior to declaring her undying love for black cock in a refreshingly vulgar version of Uptown Funk which has left recent audiences in San Francisco, Los Angeles and London reeling with mirth.
Theater queens rejoice! In her loooooong career in nightclubs, Bunny has never delved much into show tunes, but in Trans-Jester, Bunny brings it on home with a show-stopping finale featuring two classics from Gypsy and Follies. The evening also resurrects songs by country star Lynn Anderson, Millie Jackson and even an original tune which pokes fun at the dating life of whatever sex it is you want to call this "Lady". A proud slut, Bunny lampoons her own senile attempts to keep up with technology in order to still get sex, and the folly of a mature showgirl who appears to be teleported from a 1960s TV set dating the youth which the internet of 2016 yields.
The tickets are a low $19.99, and $29.99 for a post show meet and greet--as cheap as her humor--and there may be tickets for cash only at the door after the online sales close nightly at 8PM. There is no drink maximum, and Bunny's singing will drive anyone to drink. And in keeping with spring cleaning, Lady Bunny t-shirts will be on sale after each show for $20. (Someone thought "Buy in bulk" and now can't move in her tiny apartment thanks to boxes of t-shirts which didn't sell online!) Doors open at 7PM and seating is first come,first served.
Trans-Jester is written by Lady Bunny and Facebook sensation Beryl Mendelbaum.
