After Anthony's father passes away, old family members are reunited after not having been on the best of terms for over a decade. This is a hilarious take on all of the fun characters that show up at a funeral home. This is a sequel to Anthony J. Wilkinson's 'My Big Gay Italian Wedding,' and including some of the same characters.
"Fans of Wedding will of course recognize a few of our favorite characters but Funeral is a whole new show with an entirely different "vibe".  Just as Wilkinson has grown and evolved over the years, so have his characters.  Be assured, we definitely still get to enjoy Wilkinson's classic humor in Funeral (there are dancing drag queens and a psychic after all!!) but we also get to experience his more matured and sophisticated style.  This production goes deeper and adds a level of heart that allows us to feel even closer to our favorite characters and our own emotions. This is a show more about family than anything else." - momsthoughts.com
