This episode is wrought with the trials and tribulations of Joey’s life. If that wasn’t enough… we also explored the hijinks at President Mandela’s funeral, the entertainment factor of George W, Australia outlawing all gay marriages past, present and future, Gary’s going to television and the return of Wendy’s arch-enemy, the dreaded snow plow.
Today we reflect and thank the brave men and women who have served our country on this Veteran’s Day. To vaccinate or not to vaccinate…it’s not all about you. The blind leading the blind…and a visit from the Olympic Torch.
It’s all about our special guest Kristen Becker, a comedian who happens to also be an out lesbian (with stunning eyes). Becker consistently wins the hearts of all audiences, straight and gay alike, with her unapologetic humor. Her childhood, divided between the Rust Belt and the Deep South, has left her uniquely able to connect with all manner of people. Becker’s ability to win the affection of such a wide range of audiences is due to her understated southern charm juxtaposed against a raucous and powerful persona. She is truly a comic of the people.
America’s favorite past time is it still baseball or homophobia? Wendy stays one step ahead of the INS, Gary runs with scissors and Joey receives a gift from the heart. Also a Walking Dead Spoiler (not really).
With the government shut down looming Cocktails and Cream Puffs vows not to suspend any services at this time of uncertainty. In this episode we discuss our general disappointment with our government officials, the Barilla pasta controversy, the government again, then pasta again. Okay, we were caught in a loop but will still never shut down.
Road trip! Wendy and Joey journeyed two hours south to the other side of Lake Erie for Erie, Pennsylvania Pride. It just goes to show that size doesn’t matter and as long as you have a drag queen dunk tank, your party is sure to be a hit. Interesting people, new experiences and a reminder that our neighboring brothers and sisters are still fighting the battle for equality.
