With her glitzy outfits, sky-high wigs and false eyelashes longer than Tammy Faye Bakker’s, multi-talented drag artiste Lady Bunny would turn heads even if looking glamorous was her only talent. But “she” isn’t just another man in a dress: Bunny is also a successful comedienne, singer/songwriter, actress and most famously, the founder, organizer and emcee of Wigstock, the outrageous festival of drag and music that delighted New Yorkers every Labor day for 20 years beginning in 1984.

Bunny tours constantly, bringing down the house from Tampa to Tel Aviv with her mix of potty-mouthed humor, Southern charm, zany “Laugh-In” style joke routines and hilarious pop song parodies. Bunny has shared stages with Bea Arthur, Elvira, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Cyndi Lauper, Moby, the B-52’s, K.D. Lang, Margaret Cho and Patti Labelle, just to name a few.

She’s made the leap to television and the movies with roles on HBO’s “Sex and the City”, Britney Spears MTV special “In The Zone and Up All Night”, and as a roaster on “The Comedy Central Roast of Pamela Anderson”. Bunny has also appeared in the feature films “Dragtime”, “Party Girl”, “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar”. And you don’t want to miss this whore at her craziest in “Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild” and RuPaul’s “Starrbooty.” Bunny also DJ’s at fashion and club events around the globe. As an in-house dj for Visionaire/V magazine, Bunny has spun such in glamorous locations as the Eiffel Tower, Harvey Nichols in London, The Fendi showroom in Milan and Le Paquebot in Paris for Lacoste’s 75th anniversary party. “I never set out to become a dj,” says Bunny, “but the job seemed to find me.”

The secret for her popularity is simple: whether spinning hip-hop for NYC teens at an H & M Valentines Day bash or disco classics for the annual Hamptons Tea Dance benefiting Empire State Pride Agenda, “I play what the crowd wants,” claims Bunny., who feels that many dj’s have an ego problem which prevents them from varying their sets to fit the events for which they’re hired. A party girl herself, the crowd goes nuts when Bunny joins them on the dance floor. “Basically, I’m giving them a clown and dj for the price of one,” she jokes.

Bunny keeps a high national profile in print media with her weekly role as fashion commentator for Star magazine’s popular Worst of the Week column, as well as contributing to Visionaire,, Paper, Interview and Odyssey magazines. She also maintains an award-winning blog on www.LadyBunny.net, which combines humor and surprisingly incisive political commentary. Also keep an eye out for V magazine’s September issue in which Bunion was photographed by celebrity shutterbug Mario Testino for a round-up of iconic New Yorkers including Lady Gaga and Marc Jacobs.

Talented, glamorous, and funny as hell, Lady Bunny is a glittering comet hurtling towards planet Show Biz. Brace yourself for impact.
