Leslie Jordan’s “Straight Outta Chattanooga” revisits and takes the audience thru the turmoil and the lack of embracing his struggling gay youth, along with drug addiction and why his mama ran him out of Chattanooga. Leslie Jordan is one of the most consistently recognizable faces in popular entertainment. He is the prestigious Emmy Award winner in 2006 for “Will & Grace”. His defining role as “Brother Boy” in the cult film sensation “Sordid Lives” evolved into a well-received prequel on the Logo Channel. As the celebrated author and star of his own HBO Special (“Pink Carpet”); Leslie Jordan remains consistently sought after as a Guest Star on every imaginable form of episodic, comedic television even landing a role in the third season of FX’s instant classic “American Horror Story” opposite Hollywood heavyweights Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson and Francis Conroy.
Iconic international celebrity airhostess Pam Ann has evolved since first jetting out of her hometown of Melbourne 20 years ago. Pam – the alter-ego of Australian comedian-writer-producer Caroline Reid. In “Touch Trolley—Run To Galley” Pam Ann keeps things lively and nail bitingly unpredictable as she takes off her pristine white gloves and delivers an unrelenting barrage of “shoot-from-the-lip” observations. When she’s not jet-setting with the stars or flying the world sourcing material for her next performance, she can be found selling-out every stage she hits – from New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom to San Francisco’s Castro Theatre, Sydney’s iconic State Theatre to Melbourne’s Athenaeum. She’s headlined at the legendary Caroline’s on Broadway in New York, performed at the prestigious London Palladium, The Royal Albert Hall and sold out 2 shows at the 3600 seat Hammersmith Apollo – her largest solo audience to date.
In her all new show, “2020 Vision”, Miss Richfield 1981 offers a survival guide for the new world. With comedic songs, videos, and her unique take on audience participation, Miss Richfield will help calm any post-election panic, and provide tools to prevent the apocalypse! offers a survival guide for the new world. Miss R’s wide appeal includes riotous appearances on “The Tonight Show” & “Today” on NBC, “Cake Boss” on TLC, and “ Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo along with being a national spokesperson for Orbitz and Palm Springs, CA. Each year her schedule of more than 100 shows sell out theaters and nightclubs across the country, including a summer residence at the Crown & Anchor in Provincetown, MA, and frequent tours with Atlantis Events cruise ships and resorts.
Ever since becoming a YouTube sensation Coco Peru has been inundated with emails from people of all ages asking her the same question, “Coco, what is the secret to a happy life?” So, being the giver that she is, Coco wrote a new show “A Gentle Reminder—Coco’s Guide To A Somewhat Happy Life” where, through story and song, she shares with her audience a step by step guide that leaves you prepared to enter the world again ready to create your very own “somewhat” happy life. Storyteller/monologist Miss Coco Peru aka Clinton Leupp got his start as a downtown favorite in the cabaret world of NY after he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in his first show “Miss Coco Peru in My Goddamn Cabaret” over 20 years ago. Coco can be heard in the Disney animated feature The Wild as Mamma Hippo! She also appears in the highly-ish anticipated sequel of Girls Will Be Girls, which will be released someday, hopefully. Coco has appeared on TV in two stand-up comedy specials on LOGO: Wisecrack and Dragtastic, How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, Twins, Will and Grace, New York Undercover, Detroit 187, several Bravo reality and clip shows, and in an Orbitz commercial that was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.
