Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno (a/k/a the satirical pranksters the Yes Men) are masters of disguise, often posing as bigwig executives to poke fun at greedy corporations and government waste (you may remember their stunt from several years ago, in which Bichlbaum made it onto BBC World News disguised as a spokesman for Dow Chemical and apologized for the Bhopal disaster). Tonight, in honor of their new movie, The Yes Men Fix the World, those other masters of disguise—John Cameron Mitchell and Justin Bond, best known for their drag characters Hedwig and Kiki, respectively—host Hijinx, a party at the Delancey after the 8 p.m. screening at Film Forum. Presented by downtown impresario Earl Dax, the show includes an appearance by the Yes Men, as well as artists and comedians including Billy Eichner, Erin Markey, Reggie Watts, and the NYC debut of Yvonne Gougelet’s World Famous Poop Opera.
