The legendary comedian Joan Rivers is bringing her act to the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles and filming it for Showtime. From The Ed Sullivan Show to the Fashion Police, Rivers is some piece of work and keeps the crowds entertained. She is looking forward to the gay community turning out in full force for her show.

Nightspots Magazine: Hello, Joan. We are excited about your upcoming Showtime channel taping, live and in person!

Joan Rivers: I want every gay man in the area to get out there.

NS: I heard you want the first five rows to be all gay men.

JR: I want the first ten rows to be all gay, if possible.

NS: I have got my work cut out for me! [ both laugh ] What is your favorite drink? I have never asked you that before…

JR: Wine, usually a very simple pinot noir. I love a good dry wine.

NS: Have you been to Francis Ford Coppola's winery?

JR: No, I haven't had a chance.

NS: His Oscars are all on the property.

JR: So what is his big passion, movies or wine? You can have both.

NS: He has sunk a lot of money into wine. So are you still fighting with Chelsea Handler?

JR: The network has asked me not to talk about it. Also, I like to fight only with people that I feel are my equals. I really feel that. That is why I take on people like Jay Leno!

NS: Tell me a little more about the show in St. Charles.

JR: It is just my act. Kathy Griffin does a show every year and films it. Showtime came to me and said you haven't done anything for years. It is nice to get it down. I know that sounds stupid but my act changes and moves so much that it is always fun to have another document of what I am doing at the moment. So this will be my act or concert or whatever you want to call it. In England, it is my concert.

NS: I loved that special. They replay it on the Logo Channel all the time. So we have to pack out the house.

JR: There are two shows, same night. I think of it like Chicago so I am playing Chicago.

NS: Which show should I go to?

JR: Both! It will be interesting to see. You never know. You might think the first will be quieter and the second wilder, but you never know. Last week I did a seven o'clock show in Milwaukee. I don't know if they were hungry or what but they were just fabulous.

NS: I am looking forward to seeing your show. I will come say hi after.

JR: Please do, that would be lovely. After the show is always best. Before the show I am always a nervous wreck. After I can relax and have some wine!

Come get on TV! Shows are at 7 and 9 p.m. on Sat., March 31 at the Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., in St. Charles. Tickets range from $39 to $125, with purchasing and details at www.oshows.com, or call 630-962-7000
