LOS ANGELES — On Oct. 8, comedian Sam Tripoli teamed with Fun Factory for The Naughty Show, which was held at the Viper Room in Hollywood.

Headlined by “Jackass” star Steve O, the event featured Fun Factory displays throughout the venue and prizes provided by the company throughout the night.

“Most companies in the sex industry run into hardship trying to break into the mainstream consciousness, sensing a certain stigma related to the industry itself, but Fun Factory managed to deflect this usual trajectory with aplomb,” the company said in a press release. “The Naughty Show, flawlessly hosted by Comedy Central’s Sam Tripoli, featured something for everyone, from top headlining comics Steve O, Iliza Shlesinger, Tom Segura and Showtime’s Jayson Thibault, to sexy adult film stars Bobbi Starr and Kayla Paige.”

 In between comedians’ performances, patrons were treated to a burlesque performance by Elaine “Lanie” Hoxie, and pole dancing by Annemarie Davies.

Fun Factory USA CEO Joe Curtis opened the show with an introduction.

“We are delighted to partner with the comedy scene as a means of marketing our brand to mainstream audiences, and extend our exposure,” Curtis said.
