alernate Brontez bio:
Brontez Purnell is a writer (The Cruising Diaries, Johnny Would You Love Me If My Dick Were Bigger, Since I Laid My Burden Down) musician (The Younger Lovers) and choreographer (Brontez Purnell Dance Company). He resides in Oakland California and despite being a horny gay dude, he is somehow disgusted by the site/smell of semen.
Heather Jewett is a writer and comedic performer from Los Angeles. Known for her outlandish characters, standup, and for fronting the queer electro punk group Gravy Train!!!!, Heather exaggerates both the earnest and the grotesque to hilarious effect. Look for her wellness webseries, Healing with Heather, coming this fall. Heather's notorious Jerry Jergens character is a 49-year old "roast comedian" and 90s alternative rock devotee from Hoboken, NJ. During his rude and lewd act, Jerry aims only to offend, but often ends up unwittingly exploring his complex issues as an aging, fatherless male. His 90 minute shock comedy album, PASSIN' GAS?!?!, is unavailable digitally.
DANCE-Y-OKE is a dance karaoke dance party where individuals grouply dance along to music videos with great dancing in them. Video hits include Janet Jackson Rhythm Nation, Kate Bush Wuthering Heights, Aaliyah Are You That Somebody? ARE YOU!!!?????
