Dennis welcomes returning champion Drew Droege to his North Hollywood condo to talk about the new one-man show he's writing and starring in called "Happy Birthday Doug," in which he "celebrates and eviscerates gayness." He talks about the show's themes like aging, hetero-normativity, partying, the Peter Pan-ness of it all. He talks about the challenge of playing nine characters in one well at the challenge of playing drunk and/or on molly. He shares his experience with his last one-person show Bright Colors and Bold Patterns, which took him to New York City, was shot as a performance film and is now being performed by another actor. He talks about how his viral videos as Chloe Sevigny became his calling card and got him jobs. He also opens up about the experience of being on the TV series Heathers and its long, painful and tumultuous journey to actually airing. He also talks about his OTHER new show with Sam Pancake, We Are Special Bitches about an acting class from hell. Other topics include: Insta-fame, The Boys in the Band, being involved in both The Groundlings and the Upright Citizen's Brigade, selling out, celebs who came to his show, going on a vacation and what it feels like to get a big laugh.
