Andy Cohen will be celebrating Pride at the Paley Center with a special nod to 10 years of his late night show.
Cohen, who is the first openly gay man to host a show in late night, will be at the venue on June 20 to talk all things “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” as its first episode premiered in the summer of 2009.
“I’m looking forward to taking part in a lively and entertaining discussion at the Paley Center,” Cohen said in a press release. “I’m especially honored to take part in this program during WorldPride NYC.”
WorldPride NYC is the day of the city’s Pride March. This year will be specifically commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.
Cohen’s event that is sure to dish on all things Bravo is called “Living out Loud in Late Night: Celebrating 10 Years of Watch What Happens Live,” and will consist of a conversation between the Bravo guru and the show’s executive producer Deirdre Connolly.
“Andy Cohen is one of the most entertaining voices on television today and we’re thrilled to welcome him to the Paley Center for the first time, as well as feature special screenings from our renowned Paley Archive,” said President and CEO of the Paley Center, Maureen J. Reidy.
Tickets for the talk are currently on sale.
The Paley Center kicked off Pride events with Wednesday night’s “Paley Honors: A Gala Tribute to LGBTQ+ Achievements in Television” where Billy Crystal was honored for his “Soap” role of Jodie Dallas, the first openly gay character on TV.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Debra Messing were also honored.
