pics: Slippery Sundays Burlesque @ the Slipper Room (Jonny Porkpie’s birthday!)
Each year, Mayor Porkpie invites his friends (who also happen to be world-renowned performers) to celebrate his birthday by stripping to a musical theme of his choosing. Previous birthdays have featured songs with the name “Jonny”, and the music of Paul Simon and They Might Be Giants. This year, Porkpie and friends celebrate they mayor’s port of entry into this world: New York City, with “Songs of NYC.”
The Jonny Porkpie Birthday Show happened Sunday night (4/2) at Slipper Room with guests Jo Boobs, The Maine Attraction, Pinkie Special, Sizzle Dizzle, Tansy, Tigger!, and Walt Whitman. Check out photos from the comedy, music and skin filled evening, in the gallery above.
