Dear friends of the avant-garde,
My name is Reverend Jen. I am an art star, open mike host, columnist and author of a book called "Live Nude Elf." I am trying to raise funds to stage the latest episode of my live action TV show, "Reverend Jen's Really Cool Neighborhood." Each episode is hosted by me and features a slew of my eccentric friends who just happen to "be in the neighborhood" along with complex plots and piss-your-pants laughs. The show stars world-famous Mangina as "Mangina the Mailman" and author, Jonathan Ames, as our infant lovechild. Other characters include Mr. Clean (who lives in my closet with the Scrubbing Bubbles), Teen Witch, a giant talking roach, Moonshine "the bartender" and a friendly neighborhood police officer named "Officer Frenulum." Previous episodes have included plot-twists involving time travel, avoiding eviction, a Cookie Puss laced with LSD, arts and crafts, and burglars disguised as Jehovah Witnesses as well as live rock 'n' roll. The show was voted best "Off-Off-Off Broadway Musical Comedy Theater" by the Village Voice last year. I have funded the shows myself but can't afford to produce this episode: "Quest for Cameltoe" in which a dragon attacks the Really Cool Neighborhood. I need several costumes and props including two squirrel costumes, a wizard costume, a "Lady of the East River" costume, a realistic dragon mask (I know dragons aren't real, but one made of rubber and not construction paper) and much more. Not a cent would be wasted!
