The Parliament House

Don’t miss the glitz and glamour of this showcase, as a collection of (ahem) 7-year-old girls competes in a live talent show, which is sure to be wildly competitive. Hosts Jeff Jones and Janine Klein (aka Lionel and Virginia Del Frisco) have pre-screened the beauty queens who’ll be performing, and they promise us it’ll be full of surprises. We don’t know exactly what they have in store, but we hope it involves a little bit of hair-pulling and at least one little beauty queen throwing a temper tantrum. Rumor has it that one very special little girl, whose name rhymes with Milly Janes, will be part of the show this evening. We hear her talent is going to be speed-reading and that she’ll only be allowed to talk in one-minute spurts. But she’s a pro, and she does a pretty mean job of squeezing as much biting commentary into her time in the spotlight as Rachel Maddow does in an hour. Proceeds from tonight’s event will go toward funding the Little Miss Fringe Festival pageant, which promises to be the biggest and most over-the-top pageant Jones has done to date. Break out the flippers and crowning dresses! – Erin Sullivan
