Helen:Yes! Kiki: No.
Last night, Aaron, Tom, David and I attended the debut WYSIWYG performance of our own Helen Damnation, who opened the show with a riotous recounting of her need to find a place to pee in Times Square. After the show, emcee Chris Hampton hipped me that Kiki & Herb were performing a surprise Xmas show at Happy Valley, following their sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom. But dammit, I was feeling a bit feverish and had to go home. Another year that I've missed the Kiki & Herb Xmas Show. There truly is no Santa Claus.
