Before becoming one of America’s top comedians, Jeffrey Jay came out as trans at the CIA, not the waterboarding organization but the Culinary Institute of America where he studied confectionary arts.
Listen as Jeffrey talks about dressing up in drag for Halloween to confuse people, his obsession with cooking competition TV shows and why he wants Cooking with Drag queens to not only survive, but to thrive.
Jeffrey Jay made for a great interview. How fun! Just had to tell you that my brother came up with the best way to deal with telemarketers and wrong numbers:
“Oh so and so? He died.” Then silence. Love it.
OH dearies… I find your lack of Tim Curry knowledge appalling!
First: It was Charlie’s Angels 1 that Tim Curry is in and it wasn’t a cameo, it was the “false villain” (he later gets killed by the real villain once their cover is blown and crime is committed).
Second: You forgot three of his biggest roles. He’s the Concierge from Home Alone 2 (basically the other villain besides the thieves), he’s Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King’s IT (yes, the scariest clown in history), and his most trans-formative role, he’s “Darkness” (the Devil) in the movie Legend (the 1985 Tom Cruise fantasy movie). He practically rapes Mia Sara. He seems to play Villains a lot, especially since he loves to do voice work for cartoons and video games and often as the villain.
Yeah, thrust for doing extensive research is hard to find. Kinda like find a handicapped parking space at the Paralympics.
And Fausto: Superheroes was cut from the American version of RHPS but was seen as “restored” versions were made available to theaters. But there is another song that was filmed but then cut: Brad’s song, “Once In A While”, that he sings after seeing Janet doing it with Rocky.
Superheroes and Once in a While are kind of slow, lol. When I was in a production of the show, they were slow moments in the musical.
Mr. Yuck…from the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh….Pennsylvania Pride.
Delightful show with Jeffrey Jay! Love him!
