Now that 2016 is behind us at last, I am ready to start 2017 off right!  I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the cast of Astro Pop Events’ Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club this year.  I have been a huge fan of this show, and of Astro Pop Events in general, for years, and I can’t even tell you how ecstatic and honored I am to be a part of EBFC!  Two words: dream gig!  If you haven’t seen EBFC, now in its seventh iteration, you’re in for a treat.  This knock-out production features seven elaborately staged bouts, Elvis-themed burlesque, and below-the-belt commentary from co-hosts “Elvis” and “Kittie Glitter.”

But that’s not all: I’m performing in a brand new burlesque revue in Annapolis, Maryland, co-producing and performing in a burlesque and variety tribute to the Addams Family, and joining Blacklist Burlesque in Richmond for a Queen tribute.  All in the first couple weeks of the year!  Later in the month (on Inauguration Day, no less!), Naked Girls Reading returns with the ever-popular January erotica show.  Beautiful naked women reading erotica on stage?  Whew!  Let’s get into the details, shall we?
