Comedians Judy Gold & Bruce Vilanch Coming to The Alden in McLean, 11/7
October 8, 2015


The Alden in McLean bring the NSFW (not safe for work) humor of Judy Gold and Bruce Vilanch for a late show at 9 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7. Tickets are $35, $20 for McLean Community Center (MCC) tax district residents. The Alden is located at 1234 Ingleside Avenue, inside MCC.

In the show, entitled “An Evening with Bruce Vilanch and Judy Gold,” the comedians pair up for separate stand-up sets united by their gay, Jewish identities and raunchy, sidesplitting observations. One of the most sought-after jokesmiths in the entertainment industry, Vilanch has become a recognizable face in his own right, thanks in part to his stint as a regular on the television show “Hollywood Squares,” for which he also served as head writer. He has written for virtually every awards show and Hollywood comedian, including most of the Oscar casts over the past 20 years-his Jack Palance-inspired jokes have famously passed through the lips of Billy Crystal.

The sucker punch image went along with Kingdom being based in the world of mixed martial arts. “The show is a snapshot into American life for blue collar have nots,” said Long. “You talk to any fighter who isn’t Floyd Mayweather and they say they fight to eat.” Read More
