Beverly Bonner Comedy: Producer Introduces 'Casey 30 Years Later'
Beverly Bonner remains a genius in one of her latest productions "Casey 30 Years Later."
A writer, actor and producer, Beverly Bonner has been in show business for many years and has appeared in over 45 plays in New York City. Also famous for her television sketch comedy show, "The Beverly Bonner Show" and comedy shows produced at Don't Tell Mama and Wings Theater in New York City, Beverly has built quite the name for herself. Bonner now brings us "Casey 30 Years Later" based on her original character in Frank Henenlotter's 1982 cult horror film "Basket Case" -- hope you're ready to laugh.
"Basket Case" will be playing at the Broadway Comedy Club in New York City. The famous comedy stage has seen the likes of Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Jimmy Kimmel Show," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and even "Showtime at The Apollo." Framed photos of Shawn Wayans and Rosie O'Donnell decorate the walls where the famous comedians once entertained the crowd. Beverly Bonner joins the impeccable list of comics with her corky antics and her big personality.
Casey and her basket thrill the audience with their more than "special" relationship and their devious yet hilarious ways. Casey, who disowned Beverly Bonner 30 years later, shows us how rewarding life has become by just being Casey. Her dear basket and her ditzy and loyal assistant run a bar with a little side business. Casey is Madame Casey, the head of a stable of Mature and Senior Citizen Hookers, "Ladies of the Evening." "I'm the one they all go for, specially those young black rappers" says the highest paid lady companion of the group.
Transgender fights, name calling, bipolar breakdowns and carnivorism; this show is sure to leave you ROTFL (Rolling On The Floor Laughing for you non-texters). Beverly's play is interactive, fun, funny, jaw dropping and scandalous. There are no lines that aren't crossed and no shame in a little "real talk." Ms. Bonner is a true artist and director. She knows what she wants and how to make a heck of a production with an amazing cast of great actors.
Get ready for a fun friendly atmosphere with no room for sadness. "Casey 30 Years Later" will be making its debut on June 29 at the Broadway Comedy Club. Don't miss the presence of Beverly Bonner, Raymond Lopez, Sarah Young, Fenelon Guillaume, Margery Cohen and many more.
