Jonny Porkpie has a bad idea.
In a venue that already pushes the limits, the unofficial burlesque mayor of New York City is encouraging his burlesque beauties to do absolutely anything they want.
The show — “Bad Ideas” — comes to Coney Island’s Burlesque at the Beach on May 20, with some of the best in the business bringing new cards to the stage.
There’ll be heartbreaker BB Heart; the vivacious Jo Boobs; Legs Malone, the girl with the 34-and-a-half-inch inseam; and Peekaboo Point, the fastest tassel-twirler from East to West.
“The first act will be a glorious showcase of the wonders of the modern burlesque, filled with beautiful women performing the brilliant acts which best exemplify their skill, humor and sexiness,” said Porkpie.
During the second act, the ladies will be given free reign, challenged by ringmaster Porkpie to bring to life their most-outrageous ideas.
“It will be a fantastic freakin’ trainwreck,” said Porkpie.
This bad idea just might turn out to be pretty great.
Jonny Porkpie’s Bad Ideas at Coney Island USA [1208 Surf Ave. at W. 12th Street in Coney Island], May 20 at 9 pm. Tickets $10. For info, visit www.jonnyporkpie.com.
