with comedians Kevin Meaney & Julia Scotti
Friday, May 20 at Bucks County Playhouse
What happens when two successful comedians make life altering decisions to come out as gay and transgendered? Bucks County Playhouse and New Hope Celebrates are proud to present renowned LGBT comedians Kevin Meaney and Julia Scotti in their comedy show “Big Pants and Hot Flashes” at Bucks County Playhouse on May 20 at 8pm. Their collaboration is a hilarious once in a nighttime experience wayyyyyyyyy over the rainbow! A no holds barred Q&A will follow the show. Tickets are also available for a VIP reception before the show with the comedians for an additional $25.
Few comedians can skip back and forth across the sexual and gender lines like these two veteran professionals.
Kevin Meaney is familiar to audiences from his appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,” “30 Rock,” “Night Out” and “Gotham Comedy Live.” He was on Broadway in “Hairspray” for over five years.
Julia Scotti is a nationally headlining comedian who performs in comedy clubs, theaters and colleges. She was one of the winners of the Laughlin Comedy Festival, was a Finalist Ladies of Laughter and was named Advocate Magazine’s “Top 5 Hottest Transgendered Comedians of 2013.”
