Written and conceived by Vilanch, the show takes a peek at Bruce's encounters with the glamorous, ego-driven, pansexual denizens of Tinsel town. The production provides an insider's journey through the world of movie openings and exclusive parties, cell-phone gridlock, backstage crises, flak attacks, "big deals" and agent fallout. "I Love Los Angeles. If you can't be a star, at least you can be a star witness," says Vilanch. Click Here: Reviews

Bette Midler says that "for years I never said a word that Bruce didn't charge me for," while Robin Williams claims that "this man cracks my ass-with laughter." Indeed, Emmy Award-winner Bruce Vilanch is probably the most respected comedy writer in Hollywood.

Millions of people have laughed for years at his parodies, jokes, and taunts, unaware of the comic source. The Oscars, Tonys, Grammys, and Emmys are just a few of Vilanch's credits in addition to his speeches and routines for the likes of celebrities Whoopi Goldberg, Lily Tomlin, Billy Crystal, Rosie O'Donnell, Paul Reiser, Kelsey Grammer, and David Hyde Pierce.

Now, in Bruce!, Vilanch has assembled his funniest and most wicked essays, stories, and gags. With observations and views on everything from Diana Ross and the Muppets to show tunes and Star Wars, Bruce! shows how this regular "Hollywood Square" can be the "perp of some of the funniest, most famous, or notorious moments in recent show-biz history" (Time).
