I Found Out What Carol Channing's Fire Island Act Will Consist Of

Categories: Carol Channing

Promoter Daniel Nardicio is once again presenting a series of acts at Cherry Grove's Ice Palace this summer, and one of the more eye-popping of the bunch involves Justin Vivian Bond and Broadway legend Carol Channing as bosom buddies.

And what will Carol do, pray tell, at the August 24th happening?

Nardicio tells me that first Justin will do an act, then there will be a duet between Justin and Carol [undetermined as of yet], and then it will become a sort of Inside The Actors Studio "intimate conversation with Carol" type of thing.

Justin will host that part, Carol will tell stories, and questions will be fielded from the audience.

I already know your first question: How do I get tickets?

Here you go, dolly.

A series of "Actor Studio" type of interviews would be wonderful for screen legends.  As a matter of fact, this used to be done in NYC in the 1970's.   Bette Davis was one of the interviewees.  I read about it in one of her bios.


"Carol, what did you think of Barbra Streisand in 'Hello, Dolly!'?"


@mxjustinVbond That sounds like the most unbelievably delightful evening EVER! how I wish I could be there for it.


1) This will be a great evening.

2) Ms. Channing is a star through and through and is a terrific raconteur. Glad she is up to making the trek out to the Grove. Hope the weather isn't sweltering like it was for last year's Minnelli/Cumming show.

3) An event last year at the Pines Community Center with Jane Powell was unforgettable!
