What A Way To Lowe: Cable-Access Hollywood Interviewer Skip E. Lowe Dies @ 85 Comments (0)

Gypsy_mamieskipJune 6, 1929—September 22, 2014 (Seen here with great pal Mamie Van Doren)

Skip E. Lowe, a former child actor who would go on to host a bizarre, wonderful cable-access interview show, has died at 85.

Lowe's Skip E. Lowe Looks at Hollywood launched in the late '70s and featured one-on-ones with some of the greatest stars of the Golden Age, friends and/or esteemed artists who recognized a respectful interrogator when they saw one.

Martin Short has admitted his character “Jiminy Glick” was based, in part, on Lowe.

A recent interview with Lowe after the jump...

ENCYCLOPEDIA MADONNICA Is The New Blog Comments (0)

EMpic1Pink is the New Blog is one of the very first blogs I ever read. I remember looking at it and literally not comprehending what a blog was, how it read and flowed. It was an education! I loved it, and of course thanks to PITNB, Perez and Towleroad, I became a blogger myself.

Now, I'm superexcited that Trent at PITNB is supporting my quest to write the Encyclopedia Madonnica: 20th Anniversary Editioncheck out his post here, and please don't forget to chip in:

If Lypsinka Calls...I'm Here! Comments (0)

LypsinkaLyp service

If you don't know who John Epperson is, I'm not mad at you—I pity you. A drag artist extraordinaire, he is the mistressmind behind Lypsinka, a hysterical blend of Ann Miller, Maureen O'Hara and a gay Joan Crawford robot. In her shows, Lypsinka mouths along to a crazed soundtrack of classic and obscure lines from movies and other sources, representing a nightmarishly hilarious laundry list of most of the important things ever uttered.

Lypsinka-pressCalls girl

After too long an absence, Lypsinka is back, performing three separate shows from Wednesday, November 5, to Saturday, January 3, at the Connelly Theater (220 East Fourth St., NYC). Look for her in:

Lypsinka! The Boxed Set

The Passion of the Crawford

John Epperson: Show Trash

Check them out here!

Lypsinka-closeupThis is the face Margaret Thatcher dreamed of having.

I already know all three will be amazing. I saw Lypsinka at The Vortex in Chicago around 1990 and waited in a long line to get her autograph on a dollar bill. Her performance was mind-blowing back then—how did Epperson ever gather all those soundbytes and edit them so seamlessly???

Lypsinka-autographLypsinka graciously signed this card for me.

But I also had a little sneak preview at a press meet-and-greet last night, at which Lypsinka was in top form. She tore through an exhausting sequence of her signature phony phone-answering in spite of some injuries; we never would've known if she hadn't told us.

Lypsinka-liveRead her lips.

See you at all three shows!
