Varla Jean Merman's Big Easy Awards video acceptance speech

Posted By on Tue, Mar 29, 2011 at 3:48 PM

Jeffery Roberson, aka Varla Jean Merman, won the Entertainer of the Year award at last night's Big Easy Theater Awards (click here for the complete list of winners). Roberson couldn't attend last night's ceremony because he's currently rehearsing for the off Broadway show Lucky Guy, which opens for previews April 28 at New York's Little Shubert Theater. But Varla was kind enough to Skype us ("Like Oprah or whatever") from New York. Here's the video, which includes some special cameos:

Here's my cover story on Roberson and a preview of Varla Jean and the Mushroomheads, which Gambit screened at the Prytania Theatre to benefit the Big Easy Foundation.
