Bridget Everett is having a moment. The cabaret diva currently stars in Patti Cake$ and the comedy Fun Mom Dinner, in which she plays one of four mothers whose night away from the kids derails into a total shitshow. Here, Everett--no stranger to wild nights--shares her criteria for the perfect dinner party.
"A moonlit beach with Idris Elba."
"Oysters, martinis, New Orleans-style shrimp, French bread, steamed lobster, corn, bread pudding. And if there isn't a glass of Rombauer chardonnay by my side at all times, I'm flipping the table."
The Guest List
"Idris. Murray Hill. My not-so-secret crush Victor Garber. Patti LuPone. Kamala Harris. My dog Poppy."
"Mostly '70s. 'Regulate' (Nate Dogg's voice makes me vibrate and hum -- everywhere). End with Prince's 'The Beautiful Ones.' I'll be drunk and want contact. Not eye contact -- other stuff."
"Erin Markey and Cole Escola dressed as my unborn twins descending to the table, suspended by umbilical cords."
The Goodie Bags
"A flash drive with my favorite love-making hits; the Lelo Soraya -- a fancy vibrator that always does the trick."
