The gays are rioting! Theyre taking over the Guzman Center for the Performing Arts (174 E. Flagler St., Miami) tonight, where they are planning an uprising called "Queer Riot!" Such atrocities they have in store! Murder! Mayhem! Just kidding. It's actually a comedy show, featuring notable comedians from the gay world. There's Lady Bunny, who, aside from her gig as quippish fashion critic in gossip rags, is known for writing hilarious (and often naughty!) parodies of popular songs -- think a drag version of Weird Al Yankovic, except not annoying and with better hair. There's Bruce Vilanch, who made a name for himself writing Bette Midlers jokes and has since secured two Emmys. And then there's Judy Tenuta, who is famous for running around referring to men as "Studsickles" and other choice Tenuta-isms, while playing her accordion and being generally crazy. It should be noted, considering the state of affairs U.S. politics are in, there will certainly be some political tidbits thrown in here and there. So if you're not offended by anal sex jokes, the comedians' politics will undoubtedly drive you crazy. Show starts at 8 p.m., tickets $35 to $65. Call 305-374-2444.
