St. Louis' own Andy Cohen and pal Anderson Cooper will bring their "bromance" to the Fabulous Fox stage in AC2, an intimate evening of deep talk and shallow tales, on Saturday, Oct. 15. The late night talk show host and the journalist, longtime friends, will interview each other and take questions from the audience. It’s a live, unscripted and interactive look at pop culture and world events.


"We're really excited about this," said Cohen at a press junket at the Fab Fox on Thursday. "In fact this is something we've really been looking forward to. We've been on tour for a year now and we held St. Louis back a little bit because we wanted the show to be as great as it could be when we finally hit the Fox."

Indeed, there will be a lot to talk about from all things "Real House Wives" to Cardinal playoffs (fingers crossed) and a lot of presidential politics.


"He's got the election a few weeks later so I have a feeling you're going to be hearing a lot of interesting stuff from Anderson beyond our normal repertoire because he's going to be in the thick of it," offered Cohen.


"I think I've kind of resigned myself that Trump is probably going to be the nominee," said Cohen, adding that he's still undecided on a candidate. "It's certainly really entertaining. I don't know if any of us have been this engaged this early because it's so interesting and their all so different and so much is happening. It's really fascinating."


Cohen and Cooper, the pride of Bravo and CNN, respectively, are arguably the most famous out gay men on television. They met 20 years ago after being set up on a blind date that never was but soon became fast friends and have since traveled the world together.


"You'll be surprised at the stories that we have about each other that we kind of goad each other into telling and we've got a great dynamic," Cohen offered. "We've gotten a lot closer, interestingly enough, over the last five or six years since I've had the talk show; he's been a really great support to me. There aren't that many people who are on TV daily live that you can kind of commiserate with and he's been a great support to me."


The significance of the out duo touring the country in AC2 isn't lost on Cohen, who says while they speak to LGBT issues both personally and politically, it's just a part of who they are.


"Visibility is so important," he explained. "When I was growing up in St. Louis there were really no gay role models that I had on TV, so I am really proud to be the only gay late night host on television. I think one of the great things about Anderson is he happens to be gay and it's not really part of his reporting. He's totally objective; he interviewed Ted Cruz last night and he was very objective given some of Cruz's comments."
