News: 9th Annual Hotsy Totsy Burlesque Tribute to "The Star Wars Holiday Special," 12/9
As Cherry points out, if you have not seen The Star Wars Holiday Special, then you have not seen special guest star Bea Arthur sing and dance with the space alien bar patrons from the Tatooine Cantina, (here is a clip). The Star Wars Holiday Special was quite possibly the worst holiday special ever conceived. It is literally Star Wars meets rejected skits from The Carol Burnett Show and out-of-work actors from the world of Sid and Marty Krofft. It stars the cast of the original Star Wars trilogy Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford (they were under contract and couldn’t get out of it). It was written by the staff writers of The Carol Burnett Show, who admitted they had not seen the movie, and featured special guest stars Harvey Korman, Bea Arthur, Art Carney, The Jefferson Starship, and a cast of fur-suited character actors as Chewbacca’s family. It is chock full of WTF moments, such as Carrie Fisher singing, and even includes Wookie-porn.
The tribute, as always, features a brand new script, and is hosted by Cherry Pitz and Handsome Brad. It features Venatrix, Bimini Cricket, Lady Sqwheels, Fem Appeal, Brief Sweat, Bitsy Brulee, and Big Heath, as well as go-go Erika Rodgers and stage kitten Dutch Baby.
Hotsy Totsy's 9th annual tribute to The Star Wars will take the stage at The Slipper Room, 167 Orchard Street, NYC. The Slipper Room is 21+ only.
Admission: $25 pre-sold reserved seating
