MUMBO VIDEO!

Monday, March 9th, 2009 11:48 AM

MUMBO

MUMBO
 
After enduring countless blizzards, billions of bruises and 2 years holed up at circus school in Vermont,  Trixie and Monkey unveil their original evening length show: "MUMBO" Inspired by the pantheon of tragic circus elephant stories, but with a primate in place of a pachyderm. Co-starring the brilliant master of inappropriate improvisation, Bradford Scobie. With live, original music by Gato Loco- the latin-cartoon-jazz-psychedelic, NYC-based, music masterminds.

In this dark, poignantly perverse circus tale, Mumbo the Magnificent Monkey rises to fame, learning the ropes from trainer Trixie Petite. But the fate of the circus is always under the dark cloud of Monsieur Dingling, whose insatiable greed and volcanic temper threaten Trixie and Mumbo at every twist and turn. Daring feats, rampant acrobatics, incredible trapeze, shameless humor, occasional tragedy and partial nudity.

OFFICIALLY THE BEST IN BALTIMORE

You know...in show business you have to use a lot superlatives,
alliterative adjectives and verbose verbiage (see what I mean) to get
noticed. So, it's real nice when a respected and self-proclaimed
"curmudgeonly" newspaper gives accolades and a "Best Of" title that
you can call your own. THANKS, CITY PAPER!

Wiping tears from my eyes,
Trixie "Best of Baltimore" Little

BEST BURLESQUE: Trixie Little And The Evil Hate Monkey

As of this writing, Trixie Little is departing Baltimore for a while,
leaving us temporarily without a Burlesque Superhero. Luckily, she's
taking her arch nemesis/best friend, the Evil Hate Monkey with her,
and they're headed up to some kind of secret training camp in New
England (OK, it's a circus school in Vermont). When they get back in
December, we're looking forward to even more fancy high-flying
acrobatic mustachioed pasty-wearing funny sexy shtick--and that's just
from the monkey."

THE BEST SHOW EVER





Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Every time we ever performed in Philadelphia with the Peek-A-Boo Revue, instead of the usual "Pop a pastie!" or "Break a nail!" type of pre-show well-wishing, they would always declare that the show coming up would be "The best show ever." It's kind of like Murray Hill's saying too- "every show counts, kids." Monkey and I long ago adopted that same pre-show sentiment because it is really true. Each show should be your best performance that you could possibly give, at that time, with that audience, on that stage, in that particular show, on that particular night- and you just never know when your BEST day really will come. Ironically....our best performance thus far in our career DID come when we were with the Peek-A-Boo Revue March 2007. After their home of 9 years (The Five Spot) burned to the ground, they put on a hum-dinger of a fundraiser at the historic Trocadero Theater- http://www.thetroc.com/ The Trocadero was built in 1870 and has been a minstrel stage, vaudeville theater, burlesque house, art house cinema and current punk-rock club and is a gem of historical theater architecture. This building has major mojo, ghosts, history, vibe- whatever you want to call it. Even walking into the building for a midnight show that night- there was a buzz in the air- and it wasn't JUST because the previous show let out hours late and we had 20 minutes until doors opened. We were only in town to perform our 2 numbers to help out our friends who had lost their performing home, equipment and some costumes. We hadn't performed with them in over a year but we go way back. We even debuted our volcano number years ago on their tiny stage at the Five Spot where the ceiling was so low- when I stood on Monkey's feet- there was no sense of danger because I could literally extend my neck 1" and touch the ceiling with the top of my head to steady myself! Anyways- the Trocadero show was astounding! The stage was huge. The lighting was stellar. The dressing room was cavernous. The Peek-A-Boo Revue went nuts with elaborate choreographed dance numbers. Hosts Joey Martini and Scotchula were on fire. And about 800 people showed up to support them. We performed the fan dance early on and about 2/3 of the way into the show when we went on to do our "Total Eclipse of the Heart" number. That number is so great because it starts in the dark and you can literally hear the excitement when people hear the opening bars of piano and start to recognize the song. We had miles of stage to run and flip ourselves on and so much ceiling height- we really went for it- letting ourselves ride the wild tidal wave of Bonnie-Tyler-fueled emotion! Each part happened as it was designed to happen. The audience was effusive- a big orchestra pit of cabaret tables, standing room at the bar behind and a second floor balcony all filled up. When we were post-climax, after our number, we came out to soak up and give back some love and we were greeted with the Holy Grail of the performing world. The elusive, spontaneous reaction that is a heart warming sign of actually having "entertained"...a clapping, stomping, whistling STANDING OVATION! It was a total highlight in our 5-years of performing- and luckily it was filmed by pros and even edited by the best man to know in Philly- Mr. Scotchula himself. Here it is...even though you don't get to see it from our perspective (watching the audience from that amazing stage), it is still OUR BEST SHOW EVER.

FIRST PLACE AT THE MAYOR'S CHRISTMAS PARADE!

That's right- we won FIRST PLACE at the Mayor's Christmas Parade in Hampden- an epic 3-hour, freezing cold tradition on the streets of the most "Baltimore" of Baltimore neighborhoods- Hampden! We knew this was our year...but we still had steep competition- from like actual marching bands and stuff. But it just goes to show that moxie, hula-hoops and hutzpah will beat out regular ol' marching bands ANYDAY! Check us out with the Hampden Charm School Cheerleaders with our new pink-n-black hula hoops...all sponsored by the BEST boutique on the Avenue- Oh!

I LOVE THE SWEDES!


WOW! Sirqus Alfon ROCKS! This crazy clown band played at my favorite clubhouse, The Palace of Wonders, yesterday and they BLEW ME AWAY! I had the pleasure of bringing them here and hosting their American debut! So much exuberance I'm still floating! My new group of Swedish friends had quite and adventure in DC...after going to karaoke in Adam's Morgan, they got invited to a Thanksgiving Dinner the following night- where they ate vegetarian fare and played the "Family Guy Drinking Game" from which they still seemed hungover 2 days later! The show was amazing- clowning, beat-boxing, bass-balancing, melodica-eating, drum-crashing, acrobatic versions of American pop hits such as "Hey Ya," "Toxic" and "Bang, Bang." They all stayed over and I fed them left over Tofurkey and homemade cranberry sauce- they were VERY excited! We went to bed late after everyone took turns playing my new musical saw and woke up early to go to the Farmer's Market for oyster mushroom fritters- but the mushroom lady wasn't there because of the holiday- tragic! We did have breakfast burritos and hot mini-donuts though! They are on their way to Brooklyn right now and will be performing with my other circus bretheren, Scotty the Blue Bunny this week! I am left with dreams of Sweden...of circus villages like where Erik lives in a 69 German circus trailer...of a place of many islands and kind people who have great facial hair............sigh...................

Virgins & Milkmaids

The Virgin Music Festival knocked our socks off last week! The day started with us walking through the tunnel to the infield at the Pimlico Race Track- which was lined with giant posters of yours truly! We got to perform all day in the Freak Lounge- which was an amazing sideshow-style tent covered with Shocked & Amazed's sideshow banner collection, a huge bar and giant stage. We performed our "Thrilling Wonder Show" with Tyler Fyre, Lukki, Momo Taro, Fluffy & Whiskers, Strange Powers, Joule and Johnny McCloud- six shows in all! After the shows and a spontaneous dance party with break dancing youngsters, we were invited to perform the fan dance in the artist lounge. So, we performed the whole fan dance in the back of a golf cart! On the ride back to the Freak Lounge, Monkey attempted to high-jack the Flaming Lips' golf cart that was driving next to us! He didn't get away with the cart, but we did get an invitation from Wayne to dance on stage with them that night! It was loads of fun, especially with Lukki who looked like Barbarella and refused to dance and just shot people in the audience for 40 minutes with her ray-gun! Our other friends were there dancing too- like the dozen yellow-haired milkmaids from Fluid Movement. We danced and shook our tail feathers and fur so hard that whole day!

BFF at Coney Island

Today....Monkey and I went to a "Best Friends Forever" Sale. Belive it or not...we were shopping together AND we got a discount...because we bought the SAME EXACT OUTFIT and we were "best friends". Then we got into a fight at the register....where I told him that we weren't best friends anymore. But then we had to drive in a car together for 7 bumper-to-bumper hours up to Coney Island for "This Or That." Upon our arrival in Coney Island, Monkey got on the Cyclone and then got off looking EXACTLY like the Coney Island logo guy- with his hair severely parted down the middle. Look here: www.coneyislandusa.com
This Or That was INSANE- sexy banana eating was basically sodomizing with fruit and Monkey and Bunny Luv. Little Brooklyn, Creamy Stevens, Julie and Fredini were AMAZING. I have the best life ever is the point of this story. Then we got to have a slumber party at Fredini and Laure's house- which is a rainbow of formica flooring, amazing sideshow artifacts and photographs. Life is good- even if that pesky Monkey isn't my best friend!

Home Sweet Home

Finally home from the burlesque equivalent of summer camp: The Burlesque-A-Pades Midwestern Summer Adventure! Nearly 3 weeks of laughing fits, pillow fights, making up names for private parts, pulling down pants, torturing stuffed animals, sneaking cigarettes, eating questionable food, suffering numerous injuries, sharing makeup tips and generally having a ridiculous amount of fun- and that doesn't even describe all of the amazing shows we did and new friends we met! To think that a girl and a mean, nappy monkey could have so much fun with so many talented people! Tonight I'll thank my lucky stars for all the living stars that are also our friends: Corn Mo, Saturn, Angie, Tara, Helen, Kitten, Tyler, Fisherman, Stephan, Eric, Kyle and J. Renee!

Trixie in Trouble with the LAW!

That's right- I almost got carried out in handcuffs from the Charm City Roller Girls Summer Smackdown! How was I supposed to know it was illegal to present my pasties at an event not specifically 18 and over. Children across the land were scarred and irrevocably traumatized by the site of my bare breasts! Even though the site of the real physical maladies induced by roller derby seem much more upsetting- the police were still dispatched and fines may have to be paid by the roller girls. At least I get to up my burlesque street cred!

WE WON!

We are officially the Exotic World Best Burlesque Duo of 2006!

After a wild and crazy weekend in Las Vegas, we returned home with a title, giant trophy and a killer hangover. With a last minute act-switcheroo, we abandoned our Weinerfest act 4 days prior to the competition for Film Noir- then spent those precious few days adding 12 yards of sequins and several new power moves to the act- but it paid off! Highlights of this year's festival were Satan's Angel's flaming tassel twirling, Dirty Martini's Zorita tribute in a giant spider web with wandering spider hands, the masterful El Vez, all the fellas of the Boylesque category debut (especially Father Tigger and Cowboy Roky Roulette), Margaret Cho's first ever strip tease with a pair of trained 'snakes' and of course, Miss Exotic World 2006 herself, Miss Julie Atlas Muz, with her head and then her body stuffed into a giant balloon.

The old strip was so great- just like you think Vegas should be- horseshoes and roses on the carpet at Binion's, depressing amounts of people at the slots at 10am, and more buffets with white-colored food than should ever really be sidled up to. Must go eat some broccoli and try to get back on East Coast time- but not before I solemnly swear to uphold our Exotic World title and promise to be more "EXOTIC" than ever this year!

Loveland Tour


Mission to save Valentine's Day from The Evil Hate Monkey was successful. Our mini-tour with The Pontani Sisters, Kitten DeVille, Corn Mo, Fisherman's Xylophonic Orchestra and Shari was the most fun ever. Although I have scabs on both elbows and knees from being in a Virgin Sacrifice for six nights in a row! Highlights included performing on a stage straddling the center lanes of the coolest bowling alley on the planet, Asbury Lanes and having home-cooked breakfast for all 14 of us in not one, but TWO nice people's homes. The nice folks in Boston also had a shrine to Colonel Sanders that was quite memorable! I did my best to teach Fisherman's drummer, Eric, how to do yoga between beers and bowling in Asbury Park. The trip culminated with Monkey receiving this fortune in his fortune cookie upon our arrival back in Charm City: "When you squeeze an orange, orange juice comes out. Because that's what's inside." Still pondering what it all means....
