You can’t help but notice him when he walks into a room wearing his trademark t-shirt with an emblazoned slogan. You can’t help but laugh at his jokes and stories. Those are givens when it comes to award-winning comic writer Bruce Vilanch (the Oscars, Donny and Marie Show, Hollywood Squares).

But how many times does do the titles ’musical theater performer’ or ’songwriter’ come to your mind when you think of him?

As it turns out, they should since Vilanch both starred in musicals and written songs. Bruce Vilanch was in the first national company of the Tony-winning musical "Hairspray," and has written songs for Eartha Kitt and the Village People.

Always poised to take command of an awards show or benefit with his wit on the microphone, Vilanch, however, will call upon his song and dance skills at the upcoming benefit event One Night Cabaret Benefit in San Francisco for the Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation which is far more commonplace for the funny man than we might imagine.
