Jonny Porkpie's Grab My Junk
Now here's something you don't see every day. Dubbed "The World's Most Touching Gameshow," Grab My Junk is part burlesque and part game show. And yes, there will be plenty of audience participation. Throughout the night, performers will give it their all during scintillating musical numbers. Afterward, contestants will be asked to answer randy personal questions about the dancers. The prizes for the first round will include junk from host Jonny Porkpie's apartment (think unused school books and typical garage-sale detritus). For the second round, folks will be able to trade up for better prizes, including books on burlesque and other fun things. But it is the third and final round where the big guns come out. The best jewels are hidden in the host's pants, of course, and, as the name implies, audience members will be invited to reach in to (hopefully) pull out the best items. The show also co-stars NYC burlesque artist and author Jo "Boobs" Weldon, and will include performances from local talents Ophelia Flame, Gina Louise, and Switch the Boi Wonder. (Photo by Don Spiro)
