'Graduate of Electoral College for Dummies' coming to NYC Theater District
NEW YORK, NY - The self-proclaimed President of the Uninformed States of America is coming to the Broadway Theater District on President’s Day.
“The Lady and President Tramp: I Can’t Believe I’m The President,” starring Donald J. Tramp and comedienne April Brucker, will be presented Monday, February 20, 2017, 7:00 p.m. at Don’t Tell Mama, 343 W. 46th Street.
Donald J. Tramp is a ventriloquist’s dummy that bears a striking resemblance to the 45th U.S. President, complete with an orange quiff, squinty eyes and outrageous mouth.
The ventriloquist is April Brucker, a petite, Monroe-esque actress, comedienne and media personality who launched a YouTube video series for Mr. Tramp's presidential campaign on April Fools' Day 2016.
"From Jeff Dunham and Walter all the way back to Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, ventriloquists' dummies have always gotten away with outrageous remarks," says Ms. Brucker. "Now there's going to be a President who makes professional dummies look like amateurs."
“What? There’s another dummy that claims to be President,” says Mr. Tramp. “I’m the legitimate graduate of the Electoral College for Dummies.”
From New York’s Trump Tower to protests at the Republican National Convention to the Presidential Debates, April Brucker and Mr. Tramp campaigned last year across the country and attracted media coverage from the Associated Press, Reuters and hundreds of other media outlets worldwide.
Politically incorrect for conservatives and liberals alike, her one-woman show is a satirical retrospective of her experiences during the 2016 U.S. presidential election and features not only a presidential dummy, but also Secretary Hillary Clifton, Gov. Mike Dispence, presidential adviser Kellyanne Oneway and Mexican President Don Juan dé Casanova dé Gorgita.
“She’s a nasty woman marching around and flouting the First Amendment,” tweets Mr. Tramp.
Ms. Brucker’s TV credits include ABC’s “What Would You Do,” “CBS Sports Now,” NBC’s “Today Show,” plus numerous syndicated and cable shows, including “Cash Cab,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “Inside Edition,” “Layover With Anthony Bourdain,” “My Strange Addiction” and “No Reservations.” She is also a correspondent for The Clyde Fitch Report, the nationally recognized arts and politics website.
Don’t Tell Mama has a $10 cover charge with a two-drink minimum (cash only). Reservations are recommended online at www.DontTellMamaNYC.com or by phone at 212-757-0788.
