NEW YORK — Alia Janine, the porn star turned comedian, and her production Hardcore Comedy Entertainment will premiere "The Hardcore Comedy Show" this Wednesday in New York.
Billed as the first adult/sex industry-based stand-up comedy show in New York City, the show will take place at Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club on at 8:30 p.m.
“This is the show I’ve been planning to do since I crossed over to stand-up comedy," Janine said. "I wanted to gather all of the adult and sex industry workers and put them on one show, 'The Hardcore Comedy Show.'
"Coming from LA and Vegas I didn’t think it could happen in New York City, until I met some of today’s top and up and coming comics that have also worked in the adult and sex industries. Anyone from strip club bouncers and pimps to webcam models and escorts, these former industry workers are now climbing the ranks in the comedy scene. This show is not only to have some of the hardest comedy out there, but to also showcase some very talented comedians.”
"The Hardcore Comedy Show" will feature Big Jay Oakerson, Bob Levy, Dante Nero, Aaron Berg, Jaqi Furback and Lauryn Petrie. There will also be appearances by porn stars Layton Benton and Payton Sin Claire, who will be doing onstage Fleshlight and Dallas Novelty giveaways.
Advance tickets are $10 and can be purchased until the day of here or $20 at the door.
