Well, they're having a show coming up this Sunday at The Stud in San Francisco. It's titled Spookshow A-Go-Go: Mommy Dearest and Mother F***ers. Oh, even using those asterisks is making me apoplectic. Please give me a few moments to recover. Talk amongst yourselves....
Alright. It looks like a totally rockin' show. And mothers are free that day, too! Taking a closer look, it looks like everyone can get in free before 8pm. Wow! How can you beat a free show after having dinner with mum? If the producers would only watch their language. Haha. Here are the deets:

About The Film: Mommy Dearest Mommie Dearest has become a cult classic despite overwhelmingly negative reviews by film critics. Roger Ebert opened his review with "I can't imagine who would want to subject themselves to this movie." About Dunaway's performance, Variety said "Dunaway does not chew scenery. Dunaway starts neatly at each corner of the set in every scene and swallows it whole, costars and all.
" Roughly a month into release, Paramount realized the film was getting a reputation and box office as an unintentional comedy, and changed its advertising to reflect its new camp status, proclaiming, "Meet the biggest MOTHER of them all!"
About the Performers:
Mariel A La Mode- "The Bay Area's Sassy Sweet Queen of Burlesque!" ~El Vez She's a 4th generation circus artists and actually grew up in the Circus, how many of us can say that? She is an aerialist and burlesque babe with a killer set of...pipes!
Lady Satan- Producer and founding member of Sugar Shack NYC and SF's only burlesque dance party. Her unique style and humorous takes on classic themes have won over fans of stage and silver screen. Recently Lady Satan's performance as The Govoner of Alaska, Sarah Palin has landed her on Perezhilton.com and with over 14,000 views on Youtube. She's The Devil's ex-wife and she's not afraid to break your heart too!
Dottie Lux- There are two components that make up delectable Dottie: sexy, classy, delish delight and absurd humor. With acts ranging from distinguished beauty to deranged clown, this Red Hot is always the perfect flavor. Dottie has brought chuckles, bumps and grinds to NYC, SF, Seattle, LA, Boston and even the seedy shores of Coney Island.
Lady Monster- Stripping at the speed of seduction, Lady Monster will rip apart your conceptions of how sexy a big girl can be. This veteran spoken word siren has a shimmy in her step, peeling off her velvet gloves to reveal an iron fist. Vivacious, campy and oh so curvy - a growling good time.Her repertoire includes: Margaret Cho’s The Sensuous Woman (Los Angeles and San Francisco), Burlesque at the Beach (Coney Island, NYC), Full Body Symposium (Massachusetts), Tease-O-Rama 2005, 2007 and 2008 (San Francisco), and a variety of events in San Francisco). The Living Legend of Burlesque Satan’s Angel has declared her, “The Queen of the Fire Tassels”. She is her protégé with this skill and has added it to her burlesque routines. Recently Satan’s Angel and Lady Monster performed a fire tassel twirling duet in San Francisco where Angel declared her participation as “Perfection!”.
Our Host: Simone De La Ghetto- Founding member of the Award Winning Troupe, Harlem Shake!
Whoa boy! There's no one better to put the wow back into wowza than San Franny's favorite ebony ecdysiast SIMONE DE LA GHETTO. She's the queen of the quake, the Salome of the shake. She knows how to squeeze sweat from a stone.
Those faint of heart or week-kneed be warned!
