Adult Cable TV Host Robin Byrd Debuting Live Variety Show

NEW YORK — Cable TV personality and porn veteran Robin Byrd has announced her new live stage show featuring strippers, burlesque dancers, comedians, musicians, celebrities, novelty acts and other sexy performers debuting Dec. 1. at The Cutting Room in New York City.

Byrd is best known for her Manhattan Cable TV show, "The Robin Byrd Show" that has been on the air since 1977. She also starred in the porn classic “Debbie Does Dallas.”

The congenial host quickly became known for mixing X-rated strip shows and porn star interviews with motherly concern for her guests and her cable TV audience, frequently reminding late-night viewers to brush their teeth before bed.

Byrd's new “Robin Byrd Show Live!” follows a similar format, but adds talented and unique live performers to create a sexy live adult variety show.

“Generations of New Yorkers grew up with me and the girls and boys who appeared on The Robin Byrd Show,” Byrd said. “But I never had a studio audience for the TV show. For the first time, everyone can come down to The Cutting Room and experience The Robin Byrd Show Live. It will be like you remember watching when you were in high school — with a few new twists and even more gorgeous dancers than we could fit in one TV show.”

Byrd’s adult career was launched when she was a finalist in the “Ms All Bare America” contest. She went on to make numerous adult films in the late ‘70's and early ‘80's. After guest hosting on a leased access cable show called “Hot Legs,” she changed the name to “The Robin Byrd Show” in 1977. Each episode features Byrd in her trademark black crochet bikini and white fingernail polish, on a set with a large, heart-shaped neon sign that bears the name of the show.

In addition to adult film stars, the show featured guest appearances from celebrities including Sandra Bernhard, Mark Kostabi and Michael Musto, among others.

Byrd has also appeared in Hollywood movies (“Life With Mikey” starring Michael J. Fox), on stage (“The Donkey Show”) and on the small screen (VH1's “I Love The 80's”).

The new live show takes place Saturdays at 10 p.m. beginning Dec. 1 at The Cutting Room, 44 East 32 Street, between Park and Madison Avenues, NYC. Tickets are $20, with a $15 per person food/beverage minimum.
