The irreverent artist brings her successful show to Martinis Above Fourth.
Sherry Vine is coming to Martinis Above Fourth on Tuesday, November 7, and if you haven’t experienced one of her shows before, get your tickets now because it will be one you won’t soon forget.
Sherry has a dirty mouth. That’s not our statement that’s hers. She says she includes the three P’s in her act: Poop, penis, and prostitution. These mentions come in the form of naughty jokes and songs included in her musical cabaret.
There is really nothing off the table in the show and Sherry will get down and dirty leaving you anxious about what funny thing she will say next.
According to the artist, she was born in Amish country and on her sweet sixteen, she discovered she was adopted and Jewish. She ran off to Sin City where she became a popular showgirl but left Nevada to pursue her dream in New York.
That risk paid off and her live musical and comedy show was a success even abroad. She lived in Berlin from 2001 to 2005 but has since moved back to The Big Apple.
But really, Sherry is a native of Florida and despite her jet-setting claims is well-known as a part of the New York Drag circuit.
As far as where she got her name, she says it was sort of serendipitous.
"It was so stupid. It was just Sherry at first when I was living in LA," she said in an interview for Chicago Pride. "A friend of mine said for me to take a ride up Vine Street off Hollywood. There is a house up there called the 'Sherry.' I drove by and it was totally a crack house. Then Sherry Vine came together. It was perfect."
Her long list of stage, television and films include The Bad Weed ’73, ), Doll, Wigstock, Stonewall, Scream Teen Scream and many others. On stage, she appeared in the sold-out adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie.
But now that she's coming all the way across the country to San Diego you can experience her unique brand of comedy and songs for yourself.
We've included a very NSFW video sample below in which she parodies Cyndi Lauper's True Colors as an ode to Truvada.
