JONNY MCGOVERN'S HOMOLICIOUS COMEDY BIRTHDAY CAKE!
BY JOSEPH ALEXIOU
Not too long ago we interviewed comedian and Gay Pimp Jonny McGovern, and we got tales of the late night performances, fabulously decked out nightlife superstars and sexy gogo boys.
But for the folks who don’t have the stamina to stay out until 5 a.m. and catch a vogue battle (or are just too timid to brush up against the glitter), Mr. McGovern is celebrating his birthday on the evening of this Sunday, July 12 at the Ars Nova Theater “doing what he does best…putting on a show!” In addition to bringing together nightlife stars like comedienne Harriet Halloway, hot dancing queen Erickatoure Aviance, drag legend Kevin Aviance and DJ and singer-songwriter Corey Tut, expect some of McGovern’s own hilariously dirty gay comedy, including a litany of zany characters --who can resist “JoJo The F to M Penis”?
Hot comedians in the lineup also include New Now Next “Brink of Fame Comic” award winner Kate McKinnon (of LOGO’s Big Gay Sketch Show), YouTube star and VGL boy Jeffery Self (now appearing on LOGO’s Jeffery & Cole Casserole). Produced by McGovern and David LaChapelle’s personal music man, DJ Jon Jon Battles, the 8 p.m. show will be pure downtown, underground NYC-style entertainment, with a good cause attached: Part of the proceeds go to Sylvia’s Place, New York’s LGBT youth homeless shelter.
Sunday July 12 at 8 p.m.
