Paging All Pregnant Sword Swallowers
The casting call explains it all. For the local appearance of the infamous Gazillionaire Late Nite Lounge at Spiegelworld, theyre looking for a truly crazy cast o characters. This includes, but isnt limited to, dancers, martial artists, hard-core aerialists (none of that Cirque du Crap, please), pinheads, Lilliputians, pre- or post-op trannies, tall men, small women, former Olympians (gold medals only, thanks), intact hermaphrodites, drag queens and kings, fire eaters and breathers, and, yup, pregnant sword swallowers. Dont come around with a teeny baby bump, either. Theyre looking for ladies seven to nine months only. Um, WTF?
The lounge is a bawdy explosion of improv and performance art, hosted by the self-described filthiest rich man in Hollywood. Expect to be delighted, horrified, and lets hope delighted again. Either way, you gotta see it to believe it. The show -- definitely for those age 18 and older -- begins at midnight.
