THE SALON HOSTED BY MARK JANAS
Richard Skipper will be Co-Hosting our "Pre-Oscar Party" Salon as Carol Channing on February 28th with Dana Lorge as the Special Guest!

The Salon is an ongoing open entertainment event in which singers, writers and musicians share their talent with each other and audience members. We are currently enjoying our new venue, Etcetera, Etcetera where there is a $10 COVER (cash) AND a $10 FOOD/BEVERAGE MINIMUM (cash or credit). You may sign up to perform starting at 6:30 by seeing one the evening's 'Etceterettes' to fill out a card with your name, the name of your song, whether it's a ballad or an up tempo, (up tempos and comic songs are greatly encouraged!) and any upcoming events you'd like the co-host to announce. Please remember that we do not present performers in order of sign-up and, due to our time restraints and other variables, filling out a card does not guarantee you will perform, but we do our very best to get you up! It is usually a good idea to bring a few different song choices to avoid duplication. All types of material including spoken word are welcome at the Salon but please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length and please bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. If you would like to add a (or remove your) name from our list, e-mail me at tanyamoberly@juno.com.

4th ANNUAL LGBT COMEDY NIGHT
$15 in advance; $20 at the Door (visit www.gaypriderockland.org to purchase). Hosted by Rockland's Own Richard Skipper. Entertainer~Motivational Speaker~Career Coach~ Emcee~Host. VCS Gay Pride Rockland is proud and honored that Rockland's own Richard Skipper will emcee our annual LGBT Comedy Night.

Vickie Shaw looks like the woman next door ... All-American with blond hair, lipstick and polished nails. Once she opens her mouth, you'll know she was born and raised in Texas and you'll never stop laughing. After eighteen years of marriage and three kids, something was missing in Vickie's life..."People were always coming up to me and saying, 'You should do stand-up comedy.' Vickie did become a stand-up comic and came out as a lesbian at the same time. 'I would've come out as a stand-up, but it would've killed my parents.'

Everyone's favorite ex nun, nerdelicious author & comic...Kelli Dunham has been performing for a half dozen years. Kelli’s comedy is gently edgy, but she is not afraid to take her quizzical story-telling style into areas where even slam poetry dares not tread- And while Kelli’s act is many times political it is also deeply deeply personal and often focuses on that magical moment of intersection when the LGBT and non-LGBT worlds meet, or–at times– collide.
