Did you have a little too much fun last night? Do you like to laugh? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions then you won't want to miss Daisy and Jordan's Sunday Brunch of Shame. Fresh from their night out the night before, Tony winner, Daisy Eagan and future Tony winner, Jordan Kai Burnett will regale audiences with tales of their wild romps, inappropriate dealings with some of Hollywood's top D-listers, and impart the wisdom they picked up along the way (Legal note: Daisy and Jordan are not liable for any of the 'wisdom' imparted should such 'wisdom' lead to unwise decisions on the part of any audience member.). Daisy and Jordan's Sunday Brunch of Shame is the perfect antidote to a night of bad decisions. Complete with a semi-nude hunk, great tunes, bottomless brunch libations, and a special celebrity guest (Legal note: Appearance of 'semi-nude hunk' contingent on the procurement of a hunk who doesn't mind being abjectly objectified for the pleasure of Daisy and Jordan.). This show is not suitable for children under the age of 16, unless that's just what kind of parent you are. Guests who come wearing clothes from the night before get a special door prize. (more...)
