CG: MEL & EL: OUR SORTA KINDA GAY TIME OF THE MONTH Plays 92YTribeca, 8/9July 19, 2012 - by NYC News Desk
Mischievous musical comedy twosome MEL & EL return to their roots with an extra-gay-friendly edition of their raucous monthly extravaganza. Re-titled especially for the occasion, MEL & EL: OUR SORTA KINDA GAY TIME OF THE MONTH will take placeat 92YTribeca, 200 Hudson Street, NYC on Thursday, August 9th at 7:00PM.
Created and performed by funny femmes Melanie Kinard and Ellie Dvorkin with composer Patrick Spencer Bodd, MEL & EL: OUR TIME OF THE MONTH is like watching Amy Poehler and Tina Fey dish the dirt while singing naughty funny songs and telling sidesplitting stories. Hailed as “outrageous” by The New York Times and “hilariously squirm inducing” by the Village Voice, MEL & EL features new material every single month along with a special guest comedian, phenomenal food and drink deals, and a generous dose of in-your-crotch comedy.
This month’s edition will highlight comedy from their popular Atlantis cruise shows, and feature the gayest of the gay songs, such as GAY BOAT, FAGNET and SHIGGA DOO, as well as a special appearance by guest comedian BEN LERMAN (Logo TV, HERE TV).
