Hey, potential friend or frenemy!

Russell Kohlmann is here, he’s queer, and he’s (getting ever-so-slowly) used to it. Being raised Catholic in suburban New Jersey has that sort of effect on a person. So while he’s not quite cosmopolitan enough to join the ladies of Sex and the City for brunch, Russell can bust out a Britney Spears dance move that’ll make you pee your pajamas with laughter.

Affectionately known as “Ruffles,” Russell is living that “#hyphlife” as a writer-director-actor-producer and has only just started warming up in this lifetime career of entertainer. You can catch him in NY, jazzing up the cabaret scene, and on various screens in the upcoming feature “39 and 1/2” and (the film you’re working on right now).

Sparkle, sparkle, shimmy, shine! Move out of the way, it’s Russell’s time!
