About JONNY MCGOVERN:
|Gay pop superstar, TV personality, and nightlife legend, “Gay Pimp” Jonny McGovern blazed onto the New York scene in 2000 with his satirical mix of his character comedy and dirty gay hits and his fire continues to burn bright.
Jonny produced his debut album Dirty Gay Hits in collaboration with IDM producer, Secret Agent Gel. Together they crafted a collection of Gay Pimp themed songs such as Soccer Practice, Lookin’ Cute/Feelin’ Cute, and Hey Lil’ Raver Boi. Jonny then created a dirty gay teen pop style nightclub act with a bevy of soccer/raver boi dancers, a gay rapper, and fierce drag queens workin’ the runway. Jonny headlined all over Manhattan including Homocorps at the legendary CBGB’s, Joe’s Pub, Splash Bar NY, LUXX and opened for Peaches andChicks on Speed at The Electro Clash Festival as well as at his own white hot parties such as Boys Gone Wild and The Rambles at The Park.
The Gay Pimp became an Internet and international phenomenon. Teaming up with Broadway veteran Richard Jay-Alexander (Les Miz, Bette Midler’s Kiss My Brass tour) and Director Peter Martinez, Jonny created a video for Soccer Practicewhich debuted in the top five of the National Video Club chart and was downloaded over 2.2 million times from GayPimp.com and well as getting play onMTV Europe and MTV Asia. Jonny also toured nightclubs around the country as Gay Pimp and headlined the legendary Caroline’s On Broadway in his own stand-up comedy/music/variety show, You Go, Gay.
Jonny broke into TV with several high profile gigs. Comedy Central’s Out On The Edge, hosted by Alan Cumming brought Jonny’s Gay Pimp revue to a national TV audience. For an entire season, Ricki Lake highlighted his comedy and solidified his status as a ghetto superstar. He then began a long string of appearances onVH1, first being profiled on Totally Gayer and then starring on My Coolest Years. Jonny also released another smash music video Lookin’ Cute/Feelin’ Cute and toured Japan. In January 2006, Jonny conquered another format with his weekly podcast Gay Pimpin’ with Jonny McGovern, the most popular gay/weekly/comedy show on iTunes.
Jonny continues his gay world domination with This Is NYC Bitch: The East Village Mixtape, which has him producing new artists including the tranny rap supergroupLa’Mady, ball queen MECCA, Peppermint Gummybear, Tranzcore rocker Linda James and his new side group TEAM PIMP. Along with business partner and podcast co-host Martín Beauchamp, he has started a new record label, Gay/Nerd Music on which he is releasing his long awaited CD Gays Gone Wild. He is also a cast menber of the new sketch comedy show The Big Gay Sketch Show produced by Rosie O’Donnell for the LOGO television network.
