Bruce VilanchAbout Bruce Vilanch

With his unmistakable presence—characterized by a big-girl figure, oversized red glasses, a shaggy blonde mane, and usually a hilarious T-shirt—Bruce Vilanch has been one of Hollywood’s most colorful characters for decades. His campy presence and outrageous apparel only heighten his broad appeal.

He’s known to many as an onscreen character actor and comedian, but Vilanch achieved his biggest successes as a writer for stand-up comics such as Bette Midler, Billy Crystal, Lily Tomlin, and Rosanne Barr. For many years, he was the go-to comic for stand-up sets and a first-choice writer for events, including the Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, and Tony telecasts.

For more information about sponsorship opportunities and tickets, please contact Bonni Raderman, Boulder JFS development associate, at 720.749.3404 or braderman@jewishfamilyservice.org. Tickets will go on sale in September.

ARE YOU READY FOR A GAY ‘GOLDEN GIRLS’?

Few television shows are as cherished in the gay community as The Golden Girls, which is why everyone is stirring over the prospect of a gay male version—a gay Golden Girls, if you will, though, somehow, that sounds redundant.

Two of the writers from the 1985 original series, Stan Zimmerman and James Berg, have penned a pilot for Silver Foxes, a series built around four older gay men. Zimmerman and Berg also have writing credits on Roseanne and Gilmore Girls, meaning we just might have an instant classic on our hands.

Last year, according to NewNowNext, George Takei, Bruce Vilanch, Leslie Jordan, Todd Sherry, and Cheri Oteri all participated in a table read of the pilot script. No cast has been officially confirmed, but it’s hard to imagine a better lineup than that—unless of course you threw in Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart.

On the reason behind developing the story, Zimmerman told Party Foul Radio, “Every one of us is getting older…Especially with gays and lesbians and transgender, we create our own families—and that’s what The Golden Girls did. Those women came together and supported each other.”

Silver Foxes is currently being shopped around Netflix and Hulu.
