The Great Gatsby Ball was “a 1920s-themed Great Gatsby Ball on the evening of Saturday June 16 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, one of Washington’s most beautiful exquisite venues. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby characterized the glamour and decadence of the 1920s and this is your chance to experience the elegance, splendor, and extravagance of 1920s America.” First up are Kevin’s shots:

Whether you know him best as the former host of E! Television's Talk Soup, the boyish Michael on Showtime's Queer as Folk, or as the bubble-wrap wearing cult leader desperately seeking the "continuum transfunctioner" in Dude, Where's My Car, comic actor Hal Sparks has been cracking up film and television viewers since his feature debut in the 1989 cult classic Chopper Chicks in Zombietown. Actor/comedian/musician Hal Sparks began his professional career as a teenager in Chicago. As a member of the famed Second City Troupe, his quick wit and affable personality quickly gained him recognition and acclaim.

After a successful run with Second City, Sparks moved to Los Angeles and immediately began performing at numerous comedy clubs, including The Improv, The Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory and The Ice House, as well as at Comic Relief’s American Comedy Festival. Hal is currently lending his voice to the lead character of “Tak” in the Nickelodeon animated series “Tak and the Power of Juju” which airs Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. “Tak and the Power of Juju” follows the teenage jungle boy, Tak, and his fellow Pupununu villagers as they deal with their fate as the unluckiest tribe in the world. He also stars in the magic competition series “Celebracadabra” airing now on VH1. From 1999 – 2000, Sparks was the host of the Emmy-award winning “Talk Soup” on E!

In 2006, Sparks appeared on the FOX musical competition series “Celebrity Duets” and hosted the WB reality series “Survival Of the Richest.” He most recently shared judging duties with Rosanne Barr on the Nick at Nite comedy competition series “America’s Funniest Mom” which aired in April 2007. Hal is also one of the stars of the VH1 hit pop culture series “I Love The 90’s,” “I Love The 80’s,” “The 80’s Strike Back” and “I Love The 70’s.” His television credits include guest-starring roles on “CSI,” “Frasier,” and “One on One.” He also co-starred in the Showtime Original feature “Bleacher Bums,” adapted from the critically acclaimed play of the same name. Hal starred opposite Peter Riegert, Wayne Knight and Brad Garrett in this classic baseball comedy. In 2004 Sparks appeared in the box office hit “Spiderman 2.” He also co-starred in the 20th Century Fox comedy, “Dude, Where’s My Car?,” “Dickie Roberts, Former Child Star” and “Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town” with Billy Bob Thorton.
