EVENT DETAILS

One of the most sought-after jokesmiths in the entertainment industry, Bruce Vilanch has become a recognizable face in his own right, thanks to the feature-length documentary “Get Bruce!” and his one-time stint as a regular on “Hollywood Squares,” for which he also served as head writer.

He made his feature debut as a dress manufacturer in “Mahogany’, starring Diana Ross and also contributed material to her live act. Mr. Vilanch put his Muppet-like persona to excellent use as Santa’s number one helper in the syndicated TV-movie “It Nearly Wasn’t Christmas.” On the heels of “Get Bruce!”, Vilanch performed his comedy stylings Off-Broadway in “Bruce Vilanch: Almost Famous.” After a first act reminiscing on his odd path to almost famousness, he opened up the floor to questions inAct II, displaying his amazing ability for off-the-cuff one-liners. As he told US WEEKLY, there is a downside to celebrity: “Now, I get knocked if someone tries something that doesn’t work. Before it was the fault of these anonymous people, ‘the writers.'” Read More

Bruce Vilanch would be the first to admit he’s had a strange career. With that in mind, we decided to look over his Wikipedia page with Vilanch himself to see if we could make any sense of it. “A lot of the stuff on here is wrong,” Vilanch said from his home in L.A., where he’s caring for a sick pug (“It’s a pug kind of town—there’s no air to breath anyway”). “I’m not 64, in fact I’m 65, and I’m collecting Obamacare like crazy.” The Hairspray star, Hollywood Square, and Academy Awards head writer also bills himself as Lindsay Lohan‘s sobriety coach and the latest success on Christian Mingle (“just got set up with a guy who used to be Pope!”). Vilanch regaled us with the following thoughts and anecdotes “from behind, before, and squatting over the footlights.” Read More

Joe My God’s Chat With Bruce Vilanch….A Don’t Miss!

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010

Comedian, Broadway star, and writer for the stars Bruce Vilanch has been all over New York City this week, hosting the NYC Pride rally in Central Park and performing at Sunday night's 20th annual edition of Broadway Bares. This Friday he'll be reading at Celebrity Autobiography: In Their Own Words, the hilarious series in which stars read verbatim from the often tragically funny self-tomes of fellow big shots. Bruce called me yesterday and responded to a series of questions provided courtesy of some of my Facebook followers.
