Burlesque Cooking Show satisfies all your appetites

When culinary cutie Nasty Canasta & gastronomist Jonny Porkpie, hosts of EAT ME a burlesque cooking show, spice up their recipes with tassel-twirling celebrity guest chefs, they end up with a sizzling platter that's more than they bargained for. Because when tasty dishes like DELIRIUM TREMENS, DIRTY MARTINI, GIGI LA FEMME, JO BOOBS, LITTLE BROOKLYN, LUKKI, NAUGHTIA NICE, PEEKABOO POINTE, and ROSE WOOD cook for you, they really heat up the kitchen.

Pinchbottom explains; "Avid eater Alan King once said, 'As life's pleasures go, food is second only to sex. Except for salami and eggs. Now that's better than sex, but only if the salami is thickly sliced.' Here at Pinchbottom's Sub:Conscious, our salami is always thickly sliced, but we don't believe in separating life's pleasures. So we've mixed together delicious food, beautiful people, salacious burlesque performances, and a dash of cumin to cook up EAT ME."

Pinchbottom's EAT ME is an important part of a balanced burlesque diet. On the menu for September 15: tasty (but not necessarily tasteful) acts celebrating cheez whiz, bacon & eggs, fondue, foot-long hot dogs, breakfast cereal, grade A meat, and more... and just wait until you see what we've got for dessert! At less than 100 calories per performance, it's enough the make the most finicky eater a prurient gourmand.

In the immortal words of Celebrity Chef George Bernard Shaw, "There is no love sincerer than the love of food."

Pinchbottom is where burlesque meets downtown theater, buys it a drink, and takes it to bed. Pinchbottom produces monthly themed burlesque shows at Collective:Unconscious. Hosts NASTY CANASTA & JONNY PORKPIE should probably not be described at the Lunt-Fontannes of the New York Burlesque scene, although they do perform together with alarming frequency. Their ecdysiastical duets and acclaimed puppet burlesque acts have appeared at The Slipper Room, RiFiFi, Galapagos Artspace, Le Scandal, Show, Southpaw, HERE, Coney Island Burlesque at the Beach, and The New York Burlesque Festival, as well as with Punch! Puppetry Cabaret, Drama of Works, Slutty Puppets, and more. Nasty Canasta won the 2006 NY Burlesque Festival award for "Performer to Watch Out For in 2007"... so when 2007 rolls around, watch out!

"Wicked senses of humor" -The Village Voice; "Comedy and partial nudity go remarkably well together. Where else can you hoot, whistle, and bust a gut laughing?" -NY; "Hilarious burlesque" -Next Magazine; "Your perverted genre fantasies have come shimmying to life" -Time Out New York
