If you have been to New York City and caught a Murry Hill Show, I highly doubt you came out dried eyed, and your sides not hurting. The shows are pure hilarity, and brilliant. It was with heart breaking news I got from a mutual friend on Thanksgiving night that the NYC Drag King and comedian has lost "virtually everything" after a four-alarm fire at his apartment, which also happened to be Murray's 50th birthday. Fortunately, Murray was out of town when the fire broke out, but the building is now condemned and deemed uninhabitable and has lost everything from the ground up, including everything from furniture, electronics, clothing, everyday necessities to his custom-made show suits. The building took 140 firefighters on the scene to get the blaze under control and out. Now Murray is in need of our help. Amanda Lepore, Bridgette Evertt and others started a GoFundMe, till he can get back up, and on his feet. For more than 20 years Murray has been bringing many laughter and joy, so let's help take some of the immense pressure off our beloved drag king Mr. Showbiz! A GoFundMe was set up. If anyone would feel inclined to give a donation in any amount, I'm sure Murray would be forever grateful.
And in happier news, Murray's annual "A Murray Little Christmas" revue will return to NYC'S Joes Pub from December 14-18, with proceeds going to help with the fire loss as well. If you're in the city, plan on a great night, while helping out a great member of our community. Tickets are on sale.
