Lady Bunny to Perform TRANS-JESTER at The Stonewall Inn
But La Escuelita closed! So, she's bringing her newest blend of raucous, irreverent comedy to an even more legendary venue: The Stonewall Inn. And if you thought Stonewall was a riot, don't miss Bunny - cited by Adele as an inspiration for her look in this month's Vogue Magazine - in this very limited run. Trans-Jester runs Wednesdays-Saturdays at 7pm thru the summer.
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 as only a trash-mouthed drag queen can, Bunny breaks down some of the latest buzzwords like cisgender and heteronormative that we're all supposed to remember for every occasion as we "evolve." Bunny feels, that sometimes, we're actually evolving away from common sense! Take the new name for our community: LGBTQIA. 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 it's time for the gloves to come off as she addresses that farce. You don't want to miss her version scandalous version of Cait's "My Favorite Things"!
And Bunny may shock you with revelations about her own gender identity. "She" also asks pertinent questions about cultural appropriation prior to declaring her undying love for black cock in an unabashedly vulgar version of "Uptown Funk" which has left recent audiences in San Francisco, Los Angeles and London gasping with mirth.
Theater queens rejoice! In her long 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 looks like she's been teleported from a 1960s TV set dating the youth of 2016.
Stonewall Inn is an intimate venue, so reserve now to guarantee seats! The tickets are a low $19.99 ? as cheap as her humor ? and there may be cash only tickets at the door after online sales close nightly at 5:00PM. There is a two-drink minimum, There is no drink maximum, and Bunny's singing will drive anyone to drink!
Please note: This show is raunchy. It's not politically correct by definition ? that's the whole point. So if that's not your cup of tea, you should honestly skip Trans-Jester. Or prepare to grab a drink and laugh, cheer and possibly even be challenged by a salty old kook who isn't afraid to express herself from a viewpoint which is often unique.

About Lady Bunny
With her glitzy outfits, sky-high wigs and false eyelashes long enough to embarrass Tammy Faye Baker, multi-talented drag artist Lady Bunny would turn heads even if looking glamorous was her only talent. But "she" isn't just another man in a dress: Bunny is a successful comedienne, DJ, actress, and singer/songwriter. Her TV and movie credits include Sex & The City, a judge on three season's of Logo's Drag U, To Wong Foo, and Wigstock: The Movie, a documentary on the outrageous festival of drag and music Bunny created, which has electrified New Yorkers every Labor Day for over twenty years.
Time Out Magazine named Bunny the #1 drag queen of 2014. The New York Daily News listed her among their most stylish New Yorkers. And V magazine included her as one of their notable New Yorkers alongside super producer Mark Ronson.
Bunny tours constantly, both as an in-demand DJ, spinning everywhere from society events in the Hamptons to disco tea dances at The Monster and as a comedienne, bringing houses down from Cincinnati to Tel Aviv with her bawdy mix of potty-mouthed humor, zany, Laugh-In-style joke routines and X-rated pop parodies.
