ONE OF NYC’S MOST BELOVED DRAG PERFORMERS IS BACK WITH AN ALLNEW SHOW OF SONG, “DANCE” AND OF COURSE THE RAUNCHY HUMOR THAT HAS MADE LADY BUNNY A POPULAR ENTERTAINER FOR THREE DECADES. EXPECT OODLES OF NEW SONG PARODIES FROM CRASS TO CLEVER AS THE SONGSTRESS RE-WORKS HITS BY ARTISTS AS DIVERSE AS PRINCE, ADELE, KATY PERRY, DAFT PUNK, BOBBIE GENTRY AND EVEN FRANK SINATRA.
Her signature “Laugh-In” style routine of zingers zaps celebrities from Justin Bieber to Chris Christie and the Kardashians. There’s also a tribute to Dame Shirley Bassey’s more offbeat clas-sicks along with a wide variety of musical styles including Motown, hip-hop and jazz. Side-splitting videos—including a raucously funny roast of Bunny by Joan Rivers—allow the “lady” to change into a succession of eccentric (and large) costumes that match her trademark eccentric and large bouffant hairdo.
“I had to cut a lot of the dancing from my shows because people kept coming up and shoving a wooden spoon between my teeth,” says Bunny. If you ever wanted to see Honey Boo Boo all grown up, Clowns Syndrome is the show for you!Clowns Syndrome is performed at 8 p.m. every Tuesday at La Escuelita, Manhattan’s premiere Latino dance club, which doubles as a charming, undiscovered cabaret space with plenty of comfortable seating. Opening night is Tuesday, April 22, and it runs for six consecutive Tuesdays through May 27.
The price is as cheap as her humor—$19.95 with a recessionfriendly one-drink minimum.
Clowns Syndrome is co-written by Bunny and the bitter and hysterical Facebook sensation Beryl Mendelbaum.
301 West 39th Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues)
