Weapons of Mass Distraction
Forget channel- and web-surfing vaudeville was the original form of entertainment for short attention spans. This Thursday night, a variety show called the Millionaire Tramps Vaudeville Debut will land at Churchills Pub, with Dangerfun!s handpicked selection of South Florida tramps. Settle in for some stand-up and sketch comedy by Skitsations, a troupe based up the road in Hollywood. And just when your attention begins to wane and you start mentally cataloging all of your lifes regrets, youll be snapped back to the present with slapstick jugglers and bunnies pulled from top hats. Circus acts can hold your attention for only so long thats when theyll present the wiggles and jiggles of the Hellion Burlesque. Previously, dancers Hellion, Daisy Harley, Betty Pickle, Lizzy Lighting, and Ginger Bardot have re-created scenes from Eyes Wide Shut and giggly séances from slumber parties yes, while wearing only their panties. If vaudeville were cable, youd stop channel-surfing here, right?
