It’s hard to remain closed off and unimpressed with Bridget Everett is running the room. I oncehelped book a variety show for French cultural organization Villa Gillet, and the night of the show, the crowd (which included more than a few quiet French folks) felt staid. They were stunned when Everett barreled into their midst singing “Titties.” Their gasps, their squeals of delight, felt even more hard-earned and delicious than the raucous cheers of those regulars at Joe’s Pub.

I’ve loved her for years, so I was glad to get to write something up for Time Out’s New Yorkers of the Year. This is a longer version of our interview:
