The beautiful, slightly eerie Angel Orensanz Foundation was the unique setting for Performance Space 122âs annual spring gala honoring PAPER'S very own and very beloved Tom Murrin, aka The Alien Comic, and producer Lori E. Seid. At one point, equally legendary Chi Chi Valente leaned over and whispered to me, âItâs so wonderful when someone so nice and truly genuine like Tom Murrin is recognized by all!â We couldnât agree more. In addition to a live auction, zany antics by host Jonathan Ames and a funny appearance by George Bush, notable downtowners Steve Buscemi, Justin Bond, Julie Atlas Muz, Lisa Kron and David Cale read from Murrinâs hilarious 1969 play âCock-Strong.â In addition, Rosie OâDonnell spoke with incredible emotion about her love and admiration for her good friend Lori E. Seid. There was a lot of love in the room in general and a fabulous time was had by all!
