  2. I put some pictures of Bea Arthur’s 2001 appearance at Sidetrack in Chicago up on my Facebook public page:

    Thanks for having me on the show!

    : )

  3. Reneecamp says:

    YAY! Jason Smith is back! We miss him in Philadelphia, but it is good to hear him back on the show! I wonder if spent lots of time thinking of his jokes or if he cam up with them on the spot.. either way, they were so cute!

  4. Drew says:

    Really cool you guys are going to Miami. Thanks for the tribute to Bea Arthur and thank you Bea Arthur for being a classy, liberal, funny and spirited woman.

  5. Alfonzo says:

    I was sad to thear that Bea died on Saturday. She will be missed for all the attention she put on social issues and helping others to recognize that there are REAL people who experience these issues on a daily basis. You also have to love the quit-wit she displayed on TV.

    I’ll miss you Miss Arthur!

  6. Alfonzo says:

    Sorry, to post twice, but I cracked up with I heard the Cabrini-Green reference. I haven’t heard that mentioned since I was in college, then again, I don’t live in Chicago.

  7. Awe kids, I am traveling down to Miami next week. LOL what a coincidence, I have some work to do! Maybe I will run into you.

    While I am down I will enjoy a slice of “cheesecake on the lanai” in rememberance of our dear friend Bea Arthur.

    Everyone comes home to Chicago!! Welcome back, Jason!

    I was just about to go on stage with Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus this past weekend when I saw on Twitter that Bea Arthur had died… the news spread thru the chorus like wildfire, and we added a line to the show for our last show in her memory. So very sad… it’s amazing how much she meant to so many people.

    Another interesting note about Janet DuBois of Good Times- she sang the theme song to “The Jeffersons.” “Fish don’t burn in the kitchen, beans don’t burn on da grill…”

    I’ve missed you guys… been so busy lately – I need to catch up!!!

  9. Great show guys, loved the closing number. It reminded me of Rock Hudson’s biography in which he regretted the advice of a vocal coach early in his career who said he needed a more gravelly voice so catch a sore throat and go up a hill and shout your head off. Before that he used to enjoy singing and had a good voice.
