Raw, honest, and laugh out loud hysterical are just some of the ways to describe “Del Shores: Sordid Confessions” at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC. With his southern charm, frank candor, and wittiness, Del takes the audience on a ride through his life including some juicy sordid Hollywood tales. Sharing stories of admiration about working with the one and only Rue McClanahan to walking the fine politically incorrect line, Del doesn’t hold back! He lets the fire out on everything and everyone from homelessness to enraged fans to Randy Harrison. Whether he loves you or hates you, you’re one of his “Sordid Confessions,” though if he loves you, the “Sordid Confession” really shows his love!

With just two more chances to catch Del live on stage, this is an evening of enjoyment you won’t want to miss, but check your closed-mindedness and political correctness at the door and enter world of candor, humor, and Hollywood!

“Del Shores: Sordid Confessions” plays the Laurie Beechman Theatre this Friday, December 10 and Sunday, December 12 at 7:30pm. Click here for tickets! ($20 + 2 food/drink minimum)

On Wednesday, April 14, 2010, I attended the pre-screening of the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of “Spork,” written & directed by J.B. Ghuman Jr. “Spork” tells the story of an outcast named “Spork” who trying to navigate her way through junior high school while suffering through the ridicule & humiliation of being different. When a school dance contest provides “Spork” with a chance to show everyone what she’s got, her trailer park neighbors step in to help. With some booty-shaking moves, “Spork” shows us that being who you are is better than fitting in.

With a stellar cast, “Spork” makes all the right moves. Savannah Stehlin (“The Family Stone” and “Hannah Montana”) is perfectly cast as frizzy-haired outcast “Spork.” With emotion, conviction, & a certain innocence, Savannah shows the many layers to “Spork,” especially her vulnerability. Playing “Spork’s” neighbor & friend “Tootsie Roll” is the dynamic Sydney Park (“That’s So Raven”), who adds her own sass & spunk to the roll. Whenever Sydney is on-screen, a laugh was not far behind. No stranger to portraying bitchiness is Rachel Fox, who is nicely cast as “Betsy Byotch” (best known for her conniving role on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” as “Kayla,” the illegitimate daughter of “Tom Scavo,” played by Doug Savant). Getting one continuous laugh after another is the always hilarious & enjoyable Beth Grant as “Principal Tulip,” (best known for her role of “Sissy” in Del Shores‘ “Sordid Lives”). Making a brief appearance in the film is one of “Spork’s” producers Chad Allen as “Loogie,” a friend of “Spork’s Brother” (best known from “Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman,” “Our House,”and “St Elsewhere”).

Written with heart & humor, “Spork” leaves you feeling good and reminds you the most important person you have to be is yourself. Be sure to catch “Spork” from April 24-May 1. For tickets and showtimes, click here!
