Alan Cumming has been described by Time Magazine as one of the most fun people in show business, by the New York Times as a 'bawdy, countercultural sprite' and by the Guardian as 'European, weird, and sexually ambiguous'.


He has won over thirty awards for his humanitarianism and social activism, received both the Great Scot and Icon of Scotland awards from his homeland and was made an OBE (Officer of the British Empire) for his contributions to the arts and LGBT equality by the Queen, whose portrait was taken down when his was unveiled at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in 2014!


Alan Cumming is many things to many people - renaissance man, style icon, social activist, bon viveur - but to himself he is a story-teller and provocateur for hire.


He lives in New York City and Edinburgh with his husband, illustrator Grant Shaffer, and their dogs, Jerry and LaLa.

Danny Zuker is the 5-time Emmy Award winning Executive Producer of Modern Family. However, the crowning achievement of his illustrious career is being known as Trump's top Twitter Troll.  


Excerpt from a Dec 2016 article in Mashable:
Zuker suggests that Trump has the personality of a man consistently rejected by women, and consequently they are the "only group of people he genuinely dislikes — the misogyny is real." He elaborates further:

"I think he has a remarkably — and this is not a joke — I think he has a remarkably small penis, and I’m going to tell you exactly why. Because first of all, if it was even remotely average, we would have seen it by now. That guy, that’s the kind of guy who is definitely sending dick pics. If he can even find that perfect angle where it looks bigger — I don’t have any experience with this — but if he did, he would send it and he hasn’t. So, it’s tiny."  

Citing Trump's relationship with men like Steve Bannon and Vladimir Putin, he warns "if someone is that thin-skinned, they’re also so susceptible to compliments."

Because of his platform, Zuker does feel a degree of personal responsibility to continue speaking out. “When he won, I can’t tell you how many thousands of people I don’t know would write to me on various social media and ask me, ‘What do we do? Talk me off the ledge.' I did feel because I have a megaphone that I had to tell them it’s going to be okay — we can do it.”

SPEAKERS

Lori Alan is perhaps best known for her award-winning voice-over work. Recently honored by her peers at the First Annual Voice Arts Awards (the Academy Awards for Voice-Overs) Lori took first-place prizes for Outstanding Body Of Work and Outstanding National Television Commercial. She starred as Diane Simmons on Family Guy, Pearl the Whale on SpongeBob: Squarepants, Sue Richards, The Invisible Woman, on Marvel Comics' The Fantastic Four, and The Boss in the Metal Gear Solid video game trilogy. She’s proud to be a part of the Pixar Family. Voicing characters in Wall-e, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Monster’s University, Bonnie’s Mom in Pixar’s Toy Story 3, and Mother’s Sadness in Inside Out.

Lori mounted a smash solo show, Lori Alan: The Musical. She had the honor of working with Paul Reubens in The Pee-wee Herman Show at Club Nokia. She originated the role of Mae in the award-winning musical Reefer Madness, the cult musical which just celebrated its 17 year reunion concert at 54 Below. Backstage West proclaimed, "Lori Alan might give Carol Burnett pause!" Luckily, that talent brought Lori right to the small screen. From roles on the gripping Showtime drama Ray Donovan, to the hilarious Comedy Central gem Workaholics, to the deliciously naughty Desperate Housewives. She delves deeply into her material, emerging with the power to make the audience laugh and cry in the same moment. Her television career has flourished with appearances on Bones, Southland, CSI, 90210, Grey’s Anatomy, Law and Order (both LA and the original.)
