I love Halloween! The veil is thin, the dead are knocking on our doors, tricking or treating, having a good time. The best thing to do, is dress like them, blend in, to be sure everyone has fun!
I'm posting a song a day from October 2 to November 2 of some of my favorite holiday songs on Facebook and Twitter.
Last year, I created my Burn The S'more burlesque routine for the holiday. This year, I created my Baphomet routine. I am proud to get to perform these routines at the big show in town, TRAUMA at The Bluestone. Be prepared to be scared and Shout At The Devil! So much fun.
On a more serious note, I was asked by burlesque legend Satan's Angel to run a fundraising campaign for burlesque and comedy legend, Big Fannie Annie. I set up an page on Indiegogo, hoping to raise $10,000 for the down payment on her surgery. After being known around the world all of her life as "The World's Largest Show Girl", she is being told that gastric bypass surgery is her only choice. This controversial surgery needs to be done to lower her need for insulin, and to help her organs function properly again. The money we are raising is only a down payment on the surgery and doesn't go towards aftercare and other medical costs. She is currently bedridden, without health insurance and isn't old enough for medicare. Please donate what you can, leave a comment of love and goodwill or just share the link. She needs our help, otherwise she will die, needlessly. Big Fannie Annie paved the way for many a plus-sized performer, showing the world that fat people are funny AND sexy.
I have a lot of different shows I'm performing at this month. I hope you can join me, and more to be announced, so please keep checking in to this page to see what else pops up! Thanks so much for your love and support.
