Famous funnyman actor, song and comedy writer Bruce Vilanch was a dais member for Loni Anderson's PPB celebrity luncheon, seated here next to Loni's good friend, Kate Edelman Johnson. Bruce has six Emmy Awards to his credit and surprised the PPB audience with a special performance (see next picture). (Roxanne Schorbach photo)

To the delight of the crowd, Bruce Vilanch saluted honoree Loni Anderson as Edna Turnblad from "Hairspray." Bruce played the over-the-top role for two years in the first national tour of the show, and on Broadway in 2005. Needless to say, he brought down the house at the PPB luncheon!
