Pricasso Added to Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo

SAN FRANCISCO — The 29th annual Exotic Erotic Ball and Expo has added the first U.S. appearance by painter Tim Patch, otherwise known as Pricasso. Patch is one of 50 erotic artists participating in the Exotic Erotic Ball's Erotic Arts Festival.

The Sydney-based Patch paints pictures using his penis instead of a brush. Patch will be present for the entire two-day Arts Festival, and will demonstrate his painting technique.

Patch also will display his portraits of John McCain, Barack Obama, Ron Paul, Sarah Palin, George Bush, the Pope, former Australian Prime Minister John Howard and former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair.

We’re confident Tim’s abilities will impress those who matter most: Exotic Erotic Ball attendees," Ball founder Perry Mann said. "We see Tim’s appearance as just another way for the Exotic Erotic Ball to celebrate true freedom of expression in all forms.”

Tim Patch joins the Ball’s talent lineup, which also includes adult performer Sunset Thomas, hip-hop performers Tone Loc and Chuck Nutt, mash-up musical act Smash-Up Derby, Ancilla Tilia and her shaving show, Snake Babe, belly dance troupe Layla and the Lotus Dancers and The Genitorturers. Special guests include Heather Chadwell, Danny Bonaduce, Bobbi Billard, Akira Lane, Eric the Midget from the "Howard Stern Show," Mika Tan and The Asian Diva Girls.

To commemorate the move to the new waterside Treasure Island site, founder Perry Mann has doubled the cash and prizes for Best Costumes from $10,000 to $20,000.

The adjacent Exotic Erotic Expo offers 100 exhibits of toys, fashion, and video, a Wall of Nipples and a Human Petting Zoo.

The Exotic Erotic Ball has had more than 500,000 attendees over its history, and more than 30,000 are expected in 2008.

The two-day expo is open Friday, Oct. 24 from 2-10 p.m., and on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 12-6 p.m. The ball starts at 8 p.m. Oct. 25, and runs until 2 a.m. The expo will also be open during the ball for ball attendees.
