Also there's this
The teaser for this Saturday's Pinchbottom show, So You Think You Can Pinch America's Next Top Bottom of Talent. We filmed this backstage at the Slipper Room after the last Gameshow Speakeasy, actually...I have a bit in the show and my household, being (pathetic and sad) experts on reality television, contributed quite a bit to the research effort for this script, I'm (embarrassed) proud to say.
March is gonna be huge! Jackson Family Values: Beat It Burlesque! at Joe's Pub on March 7th, then it's back to Asbury Lanes for our spring show, Tease FM: Rock Block Burlesque! Then Gameshow Speakeasy returns to the Slipper Room on Thursday the 19th!

I know how he feels

Can you feel it?
Last night's third annual Smells Like Tease Spirit (or as I called it onstage, "Look Who's Teasing Now") was a great night and a fabulous show. Now, onward! Digging through the Internet for inspiration for our next big event, Jackson Family Values, has been, needless to say, entertaining, and enlightening. Watching old clips of the Jackson Five, of course they're crazy talented and the music is awesome but it's impossible to separate all of that from what we know about them NOW. What we know was coming, the madness and weirdness, what we know about what it was really like behind the scenes in the family...and we all know about Michael, but the whole family is out there, man. Did you know that Jermaine named the youngest of his eight kids Jermajesty? Anyway, that's the Jackson dichotomy! So much talent, so much batshit craziness, and it's all tied up together, and I suppose that's what makes them so endlessly fascinating. So, with that in mind, if you haven't seen the above video, prepare to have your mind blown.

We are bringin' da noise. And perhaps the funk.
