The Aristocrats

August 26-4:25 PM-The Flat
We all managed to get up and out in time to catch the screening of "The Aristocrats". Andrew walked us over the red carpet, past the reporters and up to the celebrity lounge. It was open bar and they had pop corn, chips and some fake cracker type thing. Slowly, the Creme de la Creme of this year's Fringe arrived for the movie. Karen from the Gilded Baloon, Kate Copstick -who sat next to Brian and chatted with him. Brendan Burns, Stephen K. Amos, Friendy from Puppetry of the Penis. Victor, Leon and Dean from Nigerian Spam Scam Scam. I must admit, I've seen Dean naked twice now and I think I'm getting a crush on him.
We descended from the Celebrity Lounge into Cinema #2 (I don't know if that was a subtextural joke or not). Brendan Burns introduced Paul Provenza. Paul thanked the crowd for coming and thanked the Festival for how it has shaped and changed him as a performer. I loved the movie. It was really special to see it here with all these fantastic International performers.
After the screening, Andy,Leon , Victor and Dean showed Paul Provenza the video from the other night of them acting out the Aristocrats joke. When it was done he said "That is definitely going on the DVD !". I am so happy for them.

Oooh; I've been reading about that "Aristocrats" movie, and I wanna see it, too. Of course, it will NEVER play out here in the sticks, so I am Doomed to Wait For Cable. Thank god for the IFC and the Sundance Channel....

First time I've checked in to your blog this week (school started), and I'm sorry to hear your Fun Quotient has diminished. When are you coming home?

My favorite thing was in your "Impressions of Scotland" -
the bit about the Cheese Truck. I was trying to think what jingle it should play....probably "The Farmer In the Dell" - because, as you know, "The Cheese Stands Alone...."

big smooch....
