From the menu to playist, the Fun Mom Dinner star shares her criteria for the perfect night. 

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.

The Venue

"A moonlit beach with Idris Elba."

The Menu

"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."

The Playlist

"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."

The Entertainment

"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."
