    I love John Oliver. I saw him in Albany and he was just as funny as on his show.

    • TuuxKabin

      I knew you led a charmed life. He’s fookin’ a door bell, glasses and all. I’ve always made passes at men who wear glasses. The peepers behind those lens can send one into a swoon. And those dimples. Hold me back, somebody please hold me back. And with Randy Rainbow playing himself! Yay!

  • coram nobis

    With a nod to Billbear, something uplifting, a 2016 composition by Christopher Tin, with lyrics by Leonardo da Vinci: “Sogno di Volare”, Dream of Flight.

    • coram nobis

      Una volta che avrai
      Spiccato il volo, deciderai
      Sguardo verso il ciel saprai:
      Lì a casa il cuore sentirai.

      Once you have taken flight,
      You’ll decide,
      Gaze towards the sky, you’ll know that
      That is where your heart will feel at home …

    Yay!! Very, very nice. Should be a great night!

  • nice line-up. i hope everyone on that list is as serious about representing like JO has been. he’s a fucking treasure and we shouldn’t let him leave amurka, cause we don’t have so many as witty as he is here, sadly.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Indeed, a wonderful bit of news. A respite from the weary and dreary that exists in the era of 45 and his acrid acolytes.

    • JCF

      “acrid acolytes”: Points!

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

  • JCF

    I was looking at the TrevorLIVE site

    and had an unpleasant thought: sponsors Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, Deloitte? Is this thing going to get “interrupted” (ala DC Pride)? O_x

    • Kruhn

      Well, you’re going to have people who can dish it out right back if hecklers crash the event.
