"Super Twink," a half-hour featurette produced for Howard Stern on Demand TV, unfortunately held its world premiere at the Pioneer on January 4, 2006. In a riff on "Super Man," J.D. Harmeyer stars as "Super Twink," a gay superhero who defends the world from evil Dr. Hetero (High Pitch Eric), who is trying to turn all gay people straight. Sal "the Stockbroker" Governale and Richard Christy directed; they also co-star.
Stern show staff members, wack packers, and superfans turned out in force for the invitation only premiere. Doug Goodstein, from Howard Stern on Demand, produced the event, with a capable band of staffers and interns - among them Diandra, winner of this year's Howard Stern show intern beauty pageant.
Out in front of the theater, the Reverend Bob Levy accosted guests arriving on the pink carpet. And what a guest list! We saw J.D. Harmeyer, Sal the Stockbroker, Richard Christy, High Pitch Eric, Artie Lange, Elephant Boy, Joey Boots, Double A, Wood Yi, Angry Black, King of All Blacks, Mary Ann from Brooklyn, Kenneth Keith Kallenbach, Zolar, and also, I think, Craig Gass and Jim Florentine, among many others. Howard Stern on Demand television shot throughout the set up, the screening, and the aftermath. Also, a reporter from Howard 100 news covered the event, phoning in an interview with High-Pitch Eric before he had even left his seat in the back row. The back row, incidentally, was where many of the Wack Pack players sat. After they left, Pioneer staffers discovered a large pool of melted popcorn butter coating the floor for that row.
Reaction to the film was almost universally negative. A good time was had by all.
