Tampa – When the film Sordid Lives was released in 2000, it was an instant cult classic, especially among LGBTs. The self-labeled “Black comedy about white trash” made Del Shores a household name—at least in same-sex-led households.
Now, five years after his spin-off series was canceled by LOGO, Shores is doing standup to pay the bills, and he has two stops scheduled in Tampa Bay this October. He’ll appear at the Flamingo Resort Oct. 3. On Oct. 4, he’ll appear at the Tampa Theatre following the Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival’s screening of Naked. Sordid. Reality, a filmed version of his stand up.
