Actually, I give this 2 1/2 stars.

The show featured amateur performers --- and it felt like it.

The 2 comedians were pretty good, especially the last one, who was quite good and was the highlight of the show.

The other performances were...continued

Burlesque acts were lovely. Comedians were funny though some tightening up of acts wouldn't be a bad idea, especially the puppet act. If you're going to bring someone out of the audience to participate, you should actually have a plan to have...continued

Description

Cast

Brian Fields – Host: Dr. Fields’ (yes, this guy has a Ph.D.) funny, outrageous and shocking comedy has made him stand out in the San Francisco Comedy scene. He is considered to be the new Lenny Bruce (at least one person said so). He was a Battle of the Bay finalist (2010) and has performed at the Purple Onion, Rooster T. Feathers and the San Jose Improv.

Francine Dead – Burlesque Dancer: Francine is the product of Vaudeville, Worker Bee’s and the American Dream. Inspired by classic Hollywood glamour, this Femme fatal intends to ignite you with delight! Brash and passionate, Francine has an insatiable thirst for love, beauty and the unknown. This fire-eating, burlesque performer may appear to have an icy exterior … but watch her work the stage, and it is apparent she smolders within. You can see Francine Dead perform from one end of the Bay to the other. Weither it be burlesque at RedHots or Fire for Hoodslam, this is an act not to be missed.

Hernan Cortez – Sword Swallower: Wow is the only way to describe this amazing performer. Hernan has more than 20 years amusing children and adults alike with his extraordinary act. He goes beyond what a human body can do, and he will show you the magic of the circus brought to the stage! This Daredevil performs all over the Bay Area, and he is definitely a treat to the eyes and the mind!

Dottie Lux – Burlesque Dancer: Just like The City By The Bay, Dottie Lux is known for her dizzying hills and dangerous curves. Now calling San Francisco home, Dottie produces the only weekly burlyshow in town, Red Hots Burlesque (every Wednesday and Friday). As a performer, she’s known to cause a ruckus with a horn, shake it up and bring bawdy brouhaha to well-known stages like Coney Island Side Show, The Supper Club, Bimbos and at Golden Gate Park with the Outside Lands Music Festival as well as Treasure Island Music Festival with tens of thousands in attendance. Dottie has been featured in Curve Magazine, on the cover of Go Magazine and as host of Reno Gay Pride. Also an educator, she has performed and lectured at YBCA, NYU, Berkeley College and Bard University. New Orleans, Boston, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., L.A., San Diego, Reno and Seattle have all got a taste of Dottie’s chuckles, bumps and grinds. See more at RedHotsBurlesque.com.

Sydney Sin and the Undead – Burlesque Blues Singer: Raised in the Bay Area and resurrected from Hell, Sidney Sin sold her soul to entertain. With the voice of an angel and the mind of a sexual deviant, this sultry banshee takes burlesque and stitches it together with wit and revenge. Ms. Sin debuted at Tourettes Without Regrets and can be seen at several local shows, including Seduction Fèroce.

Eloisa Bravo – Stand-Up Comic: Crazy comedy is her thing! Eloisa is a spicy Venezuelan that addresses the urban issues of a single woman. Packed with energy and cuteness, she will make you laugh, assuming you are lucky enough to understand her accent. She was a semifinalist of Rooster T. Feathers comedy competition (2011) and has performed at the Purple Onion, Rooster T. Feathers, the Palm Beach Improv, the Miami Improv and the Hollywood Improv.

Jason Gitlin – Lost Soul: Raised by Jews in an enchanted forest north of Detroit, Jason only recently discovered his talents for making people uncomfortable after a chance encounter with the devil at the crossroads. Though he came away from the deal missing 9/10ths of his soul, he can now play the ukulele and trombone while making mediocre jokes about historical monsters including Hitler, Mao, and of course, Martin Van Buren.
