Annie's Got Her Gun
Ann Coulter political satire
Act: Ann Coulter lookalike
Capitol Cabaret, an ensemble cast performing political satire, formed about a year ago when some long-time friends of Bill Pietrucha, a writer, journalist and actor, told him he resembled neo-conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter.
Having performed other impressions on stage, including Hank Williams Sr. and Tom Petty, as well as being a writer, Bill took up the challenge of playing his first female role.
After writing an hour-long show filled with musical parodies combined with satirical political observations, Bill collaborated with singer, pianist and musical arranger Deena Javor and Broadway and television actress and singer Deb Combs.
The result: a "one-woman" show featuring political satire in a cabaret setting called "Annie Has Her Gun," a political cabaret act in which he plays neo-conservative pundit Ann Coulter. This show has been performed the show in Hawaii, California, New York City, and Washington, DC.
But unlike the real Coulter, this "Ann Coulter" is an equal opportunity satirist who takes swings at both the left and right. Her (his) monologues and song parodies pick on everyone from John and Theresa Heinz Kerry to Don Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney.
