June 18: MCC (Finally) Has His Way (With Women)

Crassly, the young dead girl aspect of this reminds me of a joke Christian Finnegan told the other night about Chandra Levy. He said how the last site she'd browsed on her computer was the park where her body was later found, and was joking about what would happen if the police tried to track him down using the last sites he'd visited (porn, etc.). It was funny, and really just popped into my head - this sounds like a great lineup and a funny show and a good cause. I can't make it but FYI.

Michael Cyril Creighton & Galapagos Art Space
MCC (finally) Has His Way (with Women)
An Evening of Comedy
to benefit The Nicole duFresne Memorial Scholarship Fund

Join us Saturday, June 18th at 7 p.m. for MCC (finally) Has His Way (with Women) an evening of alternative comedy, which will benefit the Nicole duFresne Memorial Fund at Emerson College.
Michael Cyril Creighton spent his childhood wearing bow ties, drinking pickle juice and memorizing all of Madeline Kahn's films line by line. Some people said, “Michael is a strange child.” Time has passed and MCC decided to ditch the bow ties, but he'll always have a fondness of funny women. On this night of comedy, MCC will be joined by some of his favorite funny femmes: Becky & Noelle (Inspecting the Bucket, Fringe NYC), Desiree Burch (SMUT), Pat Candaras (Grandmotherf***er), Nancy Giles (CBS News Sunday Morning, China Beach), Rachael Parenta, Jennie Smith, and Becky Yamamoto as "Rosie Mc Davis".

Admission is $10.00 and the proceeds from this evening will be donated to The Emerson College Nicole duFresne Memorial Scholarship Fund**
