Strippers & Hustlers Ball in Las Vegas Adds Talent

Tod Hunter
LAS VEGAS — Perry Mann's Exotic Erotic Strippers & Hustlers Ball has announced additions to its talent lineup.

Penthouse Pet of the Year Erica Ellyson and the Men of Playgirl will be performing both nights. Local Las Vegas performers Snake-Babe and Box-Man will be performing. Snake-Babe is known for dancing while draped with a serpent and Box-Man is a contortionist whose nickname comes from his ability fit into an uncommonly tiny box.

Johnny Fratto — personality, businessman, reality TV producer, and frequent guest on The Howard Stern Show — will be showcasing his latest venture, Mob Candy magazine, and will also help judge the strippers competition.

"I kept hearing about this big show going down in Vegas, and I was planning to go check it out anyway," Fratto said, "and then my phone rings and now I'm a judge for the stripper competition. That's very cool, because this sounds like a pretty hot show that will be a lot of fun."

Richard Vission will headline the first night, which also features Scooter and Lavelle, Drummer KC, Gen-XX, and Mobius8. The second night features Gilby Clarke — a longtime member of Guns N' Roses and star of CBS' "Rockstar: Supernova" — with the Genitorturers. The show also features L.A.-based rockers D'amato, and Girls Girls Girls, an all-female Motley Crue tribute band. The Porcelain Twinz, identical twin sisters who perform a burlesque act, and Schevelle, Miss Nude Entertainer of the Year 2006-2007, will perform both nights. The main stage activities will be hosted by Paul Nathan.

Adult studio Pink Visual will design the official poster for the event. Sex Vodka will be unveiling new drinks for the occasion. Hip-hop artist Chuck Nutt will perform the event's theme song, "My Stripper Lover," written by Perry Mann. Singer Arielle Paige will make her Las Vegas debut performing her first release, "Dirty on the Dance Floor."

Strippers from Déjà Vu, Palomino, Club Paradise and Olympic Gardens will compete for more than $20,000 in cash and prizes in the categories Best Body, Best Dancer, and Best Pole Dancer. The semifinals will take place on stage Aug. 30th, and the finals on Aug. 31.

The two-day show runs Saturday, Aug. 30 from 9 p.m.-4 a.m and Sunday, Aug. 31 from 9 p.m.-4 a.m at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Tickets are available online and a limited number of discounted hotel/ticket packages are available online as well. Women attending the event are asked to dress like strippers, and gentlemen are asked to dress like hustlers. The official colors are black, pink, and purple.
