The Best Blurbed Quote In History!
Writing a good blurb is an art form unto itself, one I've been working at for years as I crank out quote lines for plays, movies, and books, always aiming to be zingy yet entirely accurate.
But one year, I found that every blurb I wrote seemed to have "romp" in it.
("A lovely retro romp"; "a no-holds-barred sexy romp"; and so on until I romped my way right out of blurbing for a while.)
But now I'm back and willing to learn something from a master:
Comic actor Leslie Jordan.
Here's what that pert little pixie drummed up as a blurb for The Screw You Revue, a drag show that's coming to the Duplex:
"So funny I nearly shit myself and fell back in it!"
You can't top a recommendation like that.
It would be foolish to even try.
It would be a totally useless romp.
