Gay, Proud, and Hilarious

Expect a huge night of gay pride and rollicking laughs this weekend at the Parker Playhouse as nonprofit organization Pride South Florida brings Big & Tall to town. Sidesplitting comedy of all shapes and sizes, Big & Tall is a duo consisting of Emmy Award winner Bruce Vilanch and off-Broadway success story Judy Gold. Vilanch is best known for his work on the Oscars, serving as the main writer for Hollywood heavyweights such as Billy Crystal and Steve Martin. Vilanch's taller female counterpart made a name for herself through one-woman hit shows off Broadway and appearances on shows such as The View. Together, the two will deliver jokes both big in hilarity and tall in order. Leave the kids at home, because this dynamic duo will dish out raunchy humor, wit, and jesting intended for mature audiences. Showtime is 8 p.m. Friday at the Parker Playhouse, located at 707 NE Eighth St. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets start at $31.50. Call 954-462-0222, or visit
