The Jazz Stripper

The Jazz StripperBrooklyn is famous for many things: hipsters, a bridge or two, the Dodgers - and of course, Neil Diamond. On Monday, February 23rd, Sweet and Nasty presents THE JAZZ STRIPPER at The New Monday Night Burlesque: a night of tassel-twirling tributes to the greatest singer-songwriter ever to come out of Kings County.

"What better way to celebrate my birthday than with a show combining two of my deepest and most abiding loves - burlesque and Neil Diamond?" asks host and producer Nasty Canasta. The reigning Cheese Queen of Coney Island, Canasta confesses to a lifelong appreciation of the man known as 'The Jewish Elvis'. "After all, we were both born right here in Brooklyn - and we were both naked at the time!"

Since 2006, Sweet and Nasty has been adding its own unique mix of glam camp, historical fact, and blatant lies to the New York burlesque scene. Sweet and Nasty currently appears on the last Monday of every month at Public Assembly, as part of The New Monday Night Burlesque. Their February extravaganza, THE JAZZ STRIPPER, is the centerpiece of a jam-packed evening of burlesque entertainment: preceded by The Kickoff at 9pm, and followed by the Monday Night Blue go-go dance party at Midnight. Plus two happy hours: preshow 8-9pm, and post-show midnight until closing.

So turn on your heartlight, thank the Lord for the night time, and travel down those Brooklyn roads with Afua Richardson, Anita Cookie, Creamy Stevens, Gal Friday, RunAround Sue, Sapphire Jones and Tigger! Host Nasty Canasta will make you a believer at THE JAZZ STRIPPER, a Diamond-studded night of burlesque at Public Assembly for one night only, Monday, February 23rd at 10pm.
