Exhibit D: "Straight Guy" in A Gay Show

Ladies & gentlemen, the People vs. the Heterosexuality of Patrick Garrigan present Exhibit D in it's ongoing indictment of the fact that Mr. Garrigan is in fact "not straight." Beginning Monday, February 18th, Mr. Garrigan will be appearing in this "cabaret" which has been described as follows:

What's The Point?! is a loving throwback to the irreverent West Village revues of the late 1950's and 1960's, which took pointed shots at the conditions of society and commented on popular trends. Like its predecessor, What's Your Problem?!, this revue was crafted from a slightly-gay perspective, but the truths are all universal. Featuring songs like "Dirty Sanchez", "How Can I Miss You (If You Wont Go Away)", "A Baby Like That", "A Real Straight Guy" and "That's Why We Love the Zoo", the show pokes fun at cell phone junkies, Upper West Side parenting, prescription pharmaceuticals, Disney's "The Little Mermaid", on-line dating, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi among a myriad of other topics.
The West Village; isn't that where the gays are? Yes, I believe it is.

As if that wasn't enough, my sources have informed me that during the course of the evening's events Mr. Garrigan commits the following offenses against the straight community:

  • Engages in a dance move called "tipping" where the performer struts across the stage like a showgirl. (I am unsure at this time if tassels are involved)
  • Carries another man on his back while singing about how he loves gay animals.
  • Proclaims his appreciation for Nancy Pelosi becoming the Speaker of the House. (Now that's gay, or maybe it's just nerdy. Let me get back to you on that one.)
  • He even performs a song called "Straight Guy in A Gay Show." ([cough, gay, cough] I think the lady doth protesteth too much)
In closing, let me say that I strongly encourage everyone to attend What's the Point so we can all see how "not hetero" Patrick really is. How does one go about doing this? One can peruse the following information and plan accordingly.
