I Contour My Lips On TV Tonight!

Categories: TV

I'm really ruling PBS this week.

First, the documentary about performer/writer Charles Busch, which I appear in, aired a whole bunch of times.

The doc about the legendary Florent restaurant, which I similarly blab throughout, is also getting shown this week.

And now I'm caught dramatically doing my makeup on a theater show!

This happens on tonight's Theater Talk, which has hosts Susan Haskins and Michael Riedel guiding myself, Jesse Green, and Patrick Pacheco through a post-mortem on the Tony Awards and who really won and lost that night.

At the end of the show, Haskins gave us a little gift box, which was extra nice since press people are now denied gift bags at the Tony after gala.

To me, the contents looked like cosmetics, so I impulsively started lining my lips while claiming to be getting ready for the Kinky Boots musical.

And it turned out it was a writing pencil!

Which worked fine--I looked fierce!



And wait! There's another magical moment on the show!

I sing a few bars of "Porgy, I's your woman...."

When the voters see this, they will surely take Audra's Tony away and send it to my place, along with the gift bag I never got.

Yes, but on the linked website, they tell all the times it's re-run on another channel. Plus it'll be available online.


Micky I love this show (even when you're not on) but I can only get it at 1:30 a.m.  What the hell is channel 13 thinking?


really love TT when the three of you are on.  Everyone seems to like each other, respect each other and everyone is so witty. Thank God for TIVO (I only have one chance to see it 1:30 AM on PBS)


I love these wrapup shows you do. This one sounds like a hoot.


Oh my dear lord. I am watching!!!!
