Connie Champagne and Katya Smirnoff-Skyy and both beloved icons on the local cabaret scene. Both will help to usher in the holiday season with separate appearances, along with co-starring roles in the musical comedy parody ‘Christmas With the Crawfords.’
“It’s the holidays!” seems to be everyone’s excuse to be overwhelmed, overbooked and over it all. But you can blow off some Santa-caused steam at some of the celebratory galas and dance nights this week. Enjoy the feeling of giving at several of the benefits and toy drives, too.
Prepare for the annual holiday of excessive eating by dancing off calories in advance at the numerous pre-holiday groove-fests around town.
Surely you’ll enjoy this week’s array of entertainments, including Thomas Dolby, Dengue Fever, and a few local celebutantes’ birthday parties. Yes, you can invite me, but don’t call me Shirley.
Don’t bother asking Megan Mullally who’s Nancy and who’s Beth. The Emmy Award-winning actress and singer, when paired up with vocal and comedy talent Stephanie Hunt, is not playing a character with either of the names of their duo act, obscurely dubbed Nancy and Beth. But perhaps you can decide on your own when you catch their show at Feinstein’s at the Nikko, November 14-16.
The many diverse talents presented by Kung Pao Kosher Comedy include gay, lesbian and straight comedians who offer more than a few quick laughs. The newest of these talents, Sampson McCormick, will be part of the line-up at the next Comedy Returns at El Rio on November 11.

November, November. It’s in like a member…of clubs and communities gay, bi and queer. Let’s have some more fun with post-Halloween cheer. There’s still time for costumes and autumnal fun. Get out and go have some, but walk, do not run.
