A Who’s Who of The 24/7 Club

As you know, this year I’ll be performing as historical figures who have the same birthday as me. Unfortunately I don’t have time to play EVERYONE in the show but was able to get some cool cats in to portray them for the trailer. So who are they?

First, watch the trailer:

From left to right:

  1. Bella Abzug, social and women’s rights activist

  2. Dr Frances Oldham Kelsey, award-winning medical scientist who prevented the selling of thalidomide to pregnant woman (I will also be paying homage to her in my show)

  3. Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter/Patty Jenkins

  4. Alice Ball, innovative chemist who found first effective cure for leprosy

From left to right:

  1. Jennifer Lopez, singer/actress

  2. Bindi Irwin, conservationist and TV personality

  3. Zelda Fitzgerald, writer, 1920s It girl, wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald

  4. Mara Wilson, writer and child actor star of Matilda

  5. Charles Johnson, leading Flat Earther

This is me as Bill Poole, better known as Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York. I believe the actor who played him in that was pretty good too… Matt Radway here is playing Calogero Vizzini, famous Sicilian mafia boss. Both men were feared and respected by their communities and had thousands turn up at their funerals. Not sure what it says about me that I share a birthday with such prominent gang leaders! (Somewhere there are hilarious out-takes from this scene.)

  1. Elizabeth Moss, actress known for Mad Men and The Handmaid’s Tale

  2. Amelia Earhart, pilot and first woman to fly the Atlantic solo

  3. Janine Charrat, ballet dancer

Monica Gaga as Caterina Jarboro


Caterina Jarboro, first female black opera singer ever to sing on an opera stage in America, twenty-two years before Marian Anderson’s début at the Metropolitan Opera.

Robert Graves, poet and author


Alexandre Dumas, author of The Three Muskateers and The Count of Monte Cristo


Alphonse Mucha, artist and Art Nouveau painter (one of my favourites!)


Ira Aldrige, first black shakespearean actor


Robert Hays, actor known for Airplane


Bindi Irwin dancing with Alexander H. Cohen, famous Broadway producer


So a pretty fun crowd at the 24/7 Club. Who do YOU share a birthday with?
