Mellman (of Kiki and Herb) and Medlyn (the Paris Hilton of Performance Art) wear fancy clothes and present a formal evening of R. Kelly songs. The duo re-hash neo-classics such as Ignition Remix, The Greatest Sex, 3-Way Phone Call (with a very SPECIAL GUEST!) and many other songs of lust, religion and paranoia.
Neal Medlyn, now residing in NY, has performed in a variety of plays, made films, written for outstanding publications and been a go-go dancer. He has presented his work in cities in the U.S and Europe including P.S. 122, Ars Nova, the Knitting Factory and Galapagos Art Space. He was honored with the title Mr. Lower East Side in 2004 and starred opposite Karen Finley in George and Martha. He has been discussed in the New York Times, in which he has appeared twice without his shirt on.
