Marc Maron’s Impromptu Set at Wiggle Room

Last night we were visited by the amazing Marc Maron, who took the stage after the show to do an impromptu (and I must say geniusy) set. Kinda made us all want to go get ice cream. Not only was he incredibly funny, but he was a gracious and charismatic gentleman. Even though he decided during his set that he was going to establish the type of relationship with Michelle L’amour that she would always find him disappointing, he certainly did no such thing.  If you were not in the intimate crowd last night, you missed a great show. You never know what you might see at Wiggle Room.  What a night.

Five Questions with Bill Cruz

Bill Cruz is a favorite at Wiggle Room.  He calls himself a Gay Bully and a flaming Broncos fan. His infectious comedy will have you screaming in your seats. Check Bill out on Facebook and Follow him on Twitter.

bill cruzWR: Your bio says you have “huggable likability”. What makes you huggable?

BC: 1. My smile 2. My eyes. 3. I am an excellent cuddler!

 
WR: You missed the Grammy’s.  Can you still call yourself a gay man?
BC: Please!? The Grammy’s barely count anymore, they might as well be the Kids Choice Awards. Plus, if its worth seeing… its on youtube.
WR: What topics are off limits for you on stage?
BC: For me… not much… probably anything I have no idea what it is… like the Kardashians. I couldn’t pick one out of a line up.
WR: What’s the cutest name you’ve ever called a lover?
BC: Your Honor!
WR: What’s the worst thing someone has called you? Was it accurate?

BC: “Not a Real Mexican” – not accurate. 1. “Real” is a subjective anD abstract concept. 2. I love menudo (the food). 3. Machismo was sooo last century.
