All concerned parties are invited to attend a tassel-twirling community meeting on September 7th at Sideshows by the Seashore, where the Pinchbottom Burlesque Management Company, LLC ("PBMC") will unveil a much sexier plan for the development of Coney Island: a burlesque theme park called "PINCHBOTTOMLAND."
Says Nasty Canasta, co-founder and CEO of PBMC, LLC, "PinchbottomLand's rides and attractions will be much more exciting than anything our competitors can offer. Our Bumper Cars both bump and grind, our Roller Coaster has the most dangerous curves around, and as for our Tunnel of Love... well, you'll just have to come see for yourself."
Chairman and co-founder Jonny Porkpie explains, "We've invited Borough President Marty Markowitz to attend our presentation, and I'm confident that once he sees the (ahem) ins and outs of our plan, he'll be 100% behind our behinds."
Mr. Markowitz's office has yet to accept the invitation.
On September 7 at 10pm, strap in for the rides of your life at the PINCHBOTTOMLAND AMUSEMENT PARK, part of Coney Island USA's Burlesque at the Beach series. Hosted by Nasty Canasta and Jonny Porkpie, and featuring such rides and attractions as: Anita Cookie, Bastard Keith, Clams Casino,GiGi La Femme, Jo Boobs, Naughtia Nice, Peekaboo Pointe, Scarlet Sinclair, and Tigger!
WARNING: first few rows may get wet.

Explore the inner mind of burlesque with 'Pinchbottom's Sub:Conscious.' Each monthly journey centers around a different theme, linking together striptease and variety acts from top performers with a topical narrative... and, believe it or not, a plot. 'Pinchbottom's Sub:Conscious' is where burlesque meets downtown theater, buys it a drink and takes it to bed. The show is hosted by NASTY CANASTA & JONNY PORKPIE, who should probably not be described at the Lunt-Fontannes of the New York Burlesque scene, although they do perform together with alarming frequency.
