San Francisco CA

or maybe you need a graphic to remind you:

look at that awesome art by Laura J. Martin! and again a reminder that it’s less than $12 if you buy tickets in advance online.

Next a few posts ago we introduced 3 of the awesome ladies in our line up: Denise Jolly, Lydia Popovich and Rachel Wiley if you haven’t checked out the entry on them yet you should (unless of course you want their awesomeness to be a surprise). You can get full bios of all the awesome ladies in this show by checking out the performers and hosts section of this website

Now I’d like you to meet a few of the other exciting gals who shall be gracing our stage

starting with our special guests from Rubenesque Burlesque: Kitty Von Quim and Miss Magnoliah Black!

Want to know more about Rubenesque Burlesque here’s a snippet from their official facebook page “Rocking the world with our fuller figured beauty … These women have challenged the fat-phobic sizest standard and inspired audiences across the country with their ample asses and attitudes! From San Francisco’s World Famous Hubba Hubba Revue to New York’s Slipper Room from Los Angeles’ Monday Night Tease to Oakland’s First Friday Follies, they give it to you hot and heavy, pound for pound and always with a ton of fun.”

We here at TWSS are delighted to add these two awesome women to our line up! It’s also worth noting that Sassy Fat Girls marks the first ever appearance of Burlesque performers in our show.

We’ll also be welcoming opening comedian Jennifer Dronsky!

Winner of the first Alameda Comedy Competition, Jennifer Dronsky is an up and coming, comic with San Francisco queer charm. Originally from southern California, Jennifer Dronsky fled to San Francisco at the sweet age of seventeen to pursue her passion for fashion. After creating two lines; Fashions for the Living Skeletons (a line for anorexics) and Baby, I mean Business (business clothes for babies), Jennifer Dronsky sought a new target market for her creative mind. Despite being a newcomer, Jennifer has been drawing focus with her charismatic style and gorgeous foul mouth. Follow her on Twitter @JennDron

And last but certainly not least we are thrilled to introduce the co-hostess with the mostest Bawdy Storytelling’s Dixie De La Tour! Dixie is a card-carrying pervert who sports both Southern charm and a mouth that would make a Sailor blush and she’s earned her Ph.D in sex-positive culture.

Dixie founded San Francisco’s ‘blue personal narrative’ movement almost five years ago in a Burning Man warehouse. The off-color nature of her life was at odds with her diehard love of storytelling until she decided to create Bawdy Storytelling, a place for other people with poor self-control to share their antics, too.

WOW if the line up wasn’t stellar enough before now it’s more out of this world than the Star trek Voyager!

We can’t wait to see you this Saturday at 8!
