The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center has announced the one night only appearance of The Kinsey Sicks: America’s Next Top Bachelor Housewife Celebrity Hoarder Makeover Star Gone Wild! at the Renberg Theatre on Wednesday, June 10 at 8pm. The quartet described by the Washington Post as, “uproarious … brilliant … authentically joyful” will kick off LA’s 2015 Pride Season.
From their beginnings singing on street corners in San Francisco to performing Off-Broadway, in Las Vegas, in two feature films, in more than 40 states, in Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia, and on eight albums, The Kinsey Sicks have established a devoted international following. For more than 20 years the award-winning a cappella drag quartet has served up a feast of music and comedy to audiences at performing arts centers, music venues, and comedy festivals in every kind of town imaginable with shows such as Sicks Appeal, The Balled Sopranos, Everything But the Kitsch ‘n’ Synch, GreatesTits, Oy Vey in a Manger, and Electile Dysfunction.
The Boyz Behind The Girlz: Kinsey Sicks member Ben Schatz (“Rachel”) is a Harvard-trained civil rights lawyer, former Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Medical Association, and one-time presidential advisor on HIV issues. Schatz created the first national AIDS legal project and authored President Clinton’s HIV policy during the 1992 presidential campaign. Actor/singer/designer Jeff Manabat is responsible for Trixie’s inordinate glamour and soaring counter-tenor, as well as the entire group’s hot couture. The hilarious and talented Spencer Brown (“Trampolina”) is a Kansas City-based actor and singer already known for his famous drag character Daisy Buckët (pronounced, of course, “bouquet”), who has worked tirelessly to help raise tens of thousands of dollars at local AIDS fundraisers. The newest member of the group, the comedically and musically gifted Nathan Marken (“Winnie”), hails from The Kinsey Sicks hometown of San Francisco.
