Once again I was put into the holiday spirit when I attended Hedda Lettuce's hilarious, smart, and stupendous holiday show "Lettuce Rejoice" on December 18, 2011 at the Metropolitan Room in NYC. With her signature comedy style and original parody songs, Hedda easily won the sold-out crowd over from the moment she took to the stage! Hedda sang a host of holiday favorites including "Frosty The Snowman," and "'Twas The Night Before Christmas," as well as debuting some new songs including "Here Comes Tranny Clause," "Do You Think That He's Queer," and a special holiday song about "Grindr." One of the things I really like about "Lettuce Rejoice" is that Hedda was very inclusive of everyone, especially when she performed a funny parody Chanukah song set to the tunes of Madonna's "La Isla Bonita" and Ricky Martin's "Livin' La Vida Loca."
What makes Hedda such a strong comedian is the way she interacts with the audience. Hedda's quick wit adds to her already brilliant comedic skills! Another reason Hedda is such a great talent is because she is not afraid to take risks with her comedy. One never knows how something will go over, but Hedda hits the nail on the head almost everytime! It's rare when a Hedda joke does not get a laugh.
With just 3 chances left to see "Lettuce Rejoice," I would highly suggest taking in this very fun, enjoyable, and feel good show on either December 21, 23, or 28 at the Metropolitan Room in heart of Chelsea, NYC's gayborhood (34 West 22nd Street, between 5th & 6th Avenue).
