Thirsty For Burlington

The good thing about having lasted so long in this business we call show is that I’ve grown up with many of the people I write about.  The acclaimed Thirsty Burlington and I go back a LONG way.  Long before I started writing this column, I spent years hosting shows in my native Boston.  One of the regulars in attendance was the young Scott Townsend.  To have watched Scott transform himself into Thirsty Burlington, one of the world’s premier Cher impersonators, has been a joy for me.  But that was nothing next to the joy I felt watching the film Thirsty and seeing how this extraordinary person developed.  It was also a pleasant surprise to see my friend Jonny Beauchamp play Scott in his early years!  If you are a fan or new to the Burlington brand, this is a film I cannot recommend enough.  You can grab it on Amazon or watch it on Amazon Prime.


When I’m still Thirsty for more Burlington, it’s time to end another column.  I forgot the worst part of the holidays – peppermint bark.  Don’t get me wrong, I love it…a bit too much.  So while I am out doing a few extra thousand steps, you can check out – the site that’s always a step ahead of everyone else.  But even while exercising (or eating), I can respond to your every need.  Drop a note to, and I promise to get back to you before Pope Francis starts giving out Bibles with a strip of condoms as a bookmark!  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
