“Clown Syndrome” opens on Tuesday April 29nd and runs for five consecutive Tuesdays through May 27.

The price is as cheap as her humor—$19.95 with a recession-friendly 1 drink minimum.

La Escuelita is at 301 West 39th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues.

 

 

Clowns Syndrome is co-written by Bunny and the bitter and hysterical Facebook sensation Beryl Mendelbaum. For tickets, head here.

Bunny is interviewed this week  by Huffington Posts Noah Michelsen.  Bunny discusses her show, politics and the whole she mail backlash.

Look, being trans is a very difficult journey and it is very hard to understand. I’m really the wrong one to ask about the terms because I didn’t like it it when the Gay Center started calling itself the Gay and Lesbian Center because that is grammatically incorrect. Gay means you like the same sex and lesbian means you like the same sex. It’s like saying “Fruits and apples” or “bitches and Bianca Del Rio.”

Then at one point they were saying the sign was like Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Two-Spirits and I’m just like — listen! Why don’t we come together? And stop trying to divide us because, like I said, those people who are going to bash you in a dark ally are probably going to bash me and a gay man or woman who is not in drag. So I don’t understand the divisiveness and I certainly don’t understand the hatred towards RuPaul.

 

Here’s my other thing: you’re going to get offended in life! If you decide to come out of the closet, there’s a lot of people that hate gays! If you decide to transition into a woman, there’s a lot of people who hate trans people. That comes with the territory! You’re going to get offended. GLAAD has included on its list of taboo words the term “gender bender.” David Bowie was a gender bender! There’s no derogatory term in there! I don’t think anyone’s ever bashed a drag queen or a trans person and said “You fucking gender bender!” You know? The thing with RuPaul and the “she-mail” controversy really riled me up because first of all, there are people who would bash your head in a dark ally if you’re gay, drag or trans. Are you going to focus on some silly game on a reality show?

There are well-funded organizations who seek to deny gay and trans people equal opportunities and housing. Are those your real enemies? Or is it someone doing a “shemale versus female” thing? I just really feel like it’s kind of crazy to attack RuPaul and it just seems like word police. I looked at some graphic the other day called the “Transgender Umbrella” and it included everything — drag queen, transvestite, transgender pre-op, post-op, two spirit, berdache, questioning — and I fall under that umbrella. So if I want to use the word “tranny,” which I’ve always seen as an affectionate abbreviation for someone who is a transvestite or transsexual, that is my right.
