Gest has spent the last two years away from showbiz but is starting a comeback on Monday (Oct. 17) by holding a party in Los Angeles hes calling THE Party, to announce his new ventures.
Topping the list is an upcoming TV special honoring Warwicks 45th anniversary in show business but Gest is also going to announce plans for a new play that will premiere in Las Vegas before moving to New York.
Gest admits hes still plagued by headaches he claims were caused by Minnelli during alcohol-fueled rages but insists hes back 100 percent mentally.
Some of the guests who will be attending include Mickey Rooney, Brian McKnight, Magic Johnson and Kirk Douglas. Gest admits its an eclectic guest list, but he doesnt think it will make for a strained gathering because, in his words, Talent respects talent.
