The Stripping Granny performs this Monday at the Hubba Hubba Revue show in Oakland

If you read through the lineup for this Monday night's Hubba Hubba Revue show at the Uptown Club in Oakland, you might just glance over her name. But there she is between Red Velvet and Zip The What-Is-It?! The Stripping Granny. One does a double take. The Stripping Granny?

Lynn Ruth Miller is an author, journalist, artist, humorist, storyteller, cabaret singer, and as she calls herself on her website, a survivor. She performs around the Bay Area at comedy clubs, cafes, theaters, night clubs, and she's put on her one-woman show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the past five years. She's also performed at the Brighton Festival, where's she's won the 2008 ThreeWeeks Editors' Award and 2009 Brighton’s Latest Magazine’s Star of the Festival Award.

The themes of this Pacifica resident's shows often revolve around aging, the embracing of one's uniqueness, and the encouragement of creativity. All of this is done with wit and humor, of course. Some of her shows include Aging Is Amazing, Farewell to the Tooth Fairy, and Alzheimer’s, Alzheimer’s Cha Cha Cha, all of which she staged and produced.

At 67 years of age, she published her first book, Starving Hearts. At 71, she decided to take up stand up comedy and performed at Edinburgh. Now, at 77, she'll be performing at the Hubba Hubba Revue!

That is one of the wonderful things about current day burlesque shows, isn't it? You not only get to see wonderful burlesque dancers such as Bunny Pistol, Miss Balla Fire, Ava Lanche, Honey Penny, Delilah, and Josie Starre, but you get to see very talented and unexpected acts like The Stripping Granny, Toshio Hirano the Yodeling Japanese Cowboy, and many others.

So drop by the Uptown on Monday night for some fantastic burlesque, plus a performance by a wonderfully inspirational and amazing individual who will make you question your preconceptions of aging. And she'll provide you with a few laughs and smiles along the way!
