Description

Twisted Sister Lady Bunny returns to downtown MONTREAL ON THE 20TH OF JULY in Trans-Jester@, her raucous stage act that Michael Musto called, “the most screamingly gratifying, crap-your-pants funny show in town” and Huffington Post declared “a gag-worthy show you can't miss". Trans-Jester first debuted at The Stonewall Inn last spring, playing to sold-out crowds, all there to experience Lady Bunny and her zany blend of bawdy, irreverent comedy. Celebrities as diverse as Andy Cohen, Susan Sarandon, Rupert Everett, Anohni and James Cameron Mitchell were among those in the crowd, cheering as the sewer- mouthed diva delivered her one-of-a-kind, insightful social commentary. This year’s show promises to be even more rowdy, touching on such hot button topics as Donald Trump, United Airlines and Caitlyn Jenner’s sex change surgery!

In Trans-Jester!, Bunny delivers plenty of side-splitting Laugh-In style zingers. She has also widened her repertoire to include new parodies which re-work selections from Adele (who, in an interview with Vogue Magazine, named Bunny as an inspiration for her look), Rent and Bruno Mars. In an unabashedly vulgar version of “Uptown Funk,” Bunny asks pertinent questions about cultural appropriation prior to declaring her undying love for black cock.
In a world that's gone mad with PC word police, Bunny frames everything in the context of "What can we still laugh at?" Says Bunny, “We're so politically correct that we've made Dick Van Dyke change his name to Penis Van Lesbian.” Bunny seldom delves into actual politics since one train-wreck is enough, but she fearlessly takes on gender politics.
The evening resurrects songs by country star Lynn Anderson, Millie Jackson and even an original tune that pokes fun at the dating life of (whatever sex it is you want to call this “Lady"). In her long career in nightclubs, Bunny has rarely incorporated show tunes into her act, but in Trans-Jester, she performs a scandalous Caitlyn Jenner version of “My Favorite Things” and then brings it all home with a show-stopping finale featuring two classics from Gypsy and Follies.

Trans-Jester began its run at Stonewall Inn on April 13, 2016. It was originally intended to run for one month but was extended through the summer. It then moved to London’s Soho Theatre for a two-week run that sold out ten days before it opened. In their review of the show, Gay Times Magazine compared Bunny to Don Rickles and Lisa Lampanelli, adding that Bunny is “a true drag icon who helps make this grey, murky world a little more colourful.” Bunny heads back to London for three more weeks in June.

But New York gets her first! Expect lots of surprises in the new production of Trans-Jester. Bunny has added new gags, including a witheringly funny and timely parody of Beauty And The Beast.


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 that 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.
