From Lucha VaVOOM to San Francisco with love this Valentine's Day weekend!

This coming Friday, Lucha VaVOOM returns to brings their brand of Sexo y Violencia to San Francisco for Valentine's Day weekend! All with a dash of love! Yes, it's Lucha VaVOOM: From Lucha with Love at the Fillmore on Friday, February 12, starting at 9:00pm.

Lucha VaVOOM comes to the San Francisco Bay Area several times a year. If you've never been, Lucha VaVOOM (or LVV) is a mixture of Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling with burlesque. Add in the live commentary of a couple of comedians, and you've got a one-of-a-kind evening of zany sexiness that can't be matched. I mean, where else can you see mini chicken wrestlers jumping off of balconies and being escorted by striptease artists?

LVV was created in 2002 by Rita D'Albert and Liz Fairbairn in Los Angeles. Since then, they've also taken their show on the road to Chicago and New York. It should be noted that their upcoming shows this week at the Mayan Theater in Los Angeles have sold out!

This time around, LVV is bringing north burlesque performers Carolina Cerasola, Harvest Moon, Lux LaCroix, Lucy Fur, Karis, Roky Roulette, and Ursulina. You may remember Carolina Cerasola from last year's Superstars of Dance on NBC. If not, here's a clip from that show!

Hold on! You don't want to forget about the wrestling! Not only will you see the very sexy wrestler Hector Garza, Dirty Sanchez, and "oily" Joey Ryan, but the Chickens are back! Plus see the debut of the Mini Kissing Bandit! And perhaps a wrestler will strip for you, too...

But wait a minute. That's still not all! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Tom Kenny of Spongebob Squarepants and Mr. Show fame will be back as one of the comedic announcers! That just about completes a fantastic line-up that will leave you breathless. Oh my!

So grab your sweetheart, friends, family, and countrymen and head on over to the Fillmore this Friday, February 12, for an evening of laughs, sexiness, and unique sights. Tickets are available at the door (if available) and in advance at So get your tickets now for an event that you and your sweetie won't forget!

Oh! And if you're going solo, you may just meet someone special at the show! ;-)

Sexo y Violencia!

Mexican Masked Wrestling + Burlesque + Comedy = Lucha VaVOOM

Lucha VaVOOM is a non-stop, action-packed scream-a-thon, where Mexican Masked wrestlers flip and fly, performing breathtaking acrobatic feats. It’s good vs. evil played out in a one fall, Lucha Libre exhibition-style match for maximum enjoyment.

In between matches, the finest, handpicked burlesque acts from around the world astound us; at Lucha VaVOOM, we like a little sexo with our violencia. Raucous aerial acts, Pogo-stick peelers, hula-hoop hotties; we’ve got it all.

But wait there’s more! Our color commentary is handled by comedians Tom Kenny, Dana Gould and Blaine Capatch. In the past, other guest commentators have included Fred Armisen, Brian Poussein, Patton Oswalt, Jeffrey Ross, Chris Hardwick and Bobcat Goldthwait. Even Jack Black sat in, proclaiming “Lucha VaVOOM is the sh*t!
