Comedian/potty-mouthed Curb Your Enthusiasm actress Susie Essman is scheduled to host a awards gala for her alma mater, Purchase College.
This will be the second annual Purchase College School of the Arts Gala, and will honor artist Kiki Smith, choreographer Paul Taylor, playwright Lynn Nottage, musician Paquito D’Rivera, and philanthropists, Jane and Donald Cecil with Nelson A. Rockefeller Awards for their contributions to the arts. Essman graduated from the Westchester, NY school as a member of the class of ’77. No word yet on who, if anyone, will be called a fat fuck.
The event takes place on March 15 at the Millenium Broadway Hotel in New York City. You can find more information by visiting Purchase’s site.
