A Sneak Peek at this week's featured perfomer: ALBERT CADABRA

This week we are amped to bring one of our favorite magic men and boylesque perfomers: ALBERT CADABRA to Shaken and Stirred! Our guest performer this week is none other than the sugary sweet GINGER BROWN. Making her debut in the Sugar Shack is LINDY LOLLIPOP and giving great gogo is HAZEL HONEYSUCKLE. Hosted by RUNAROUND SUE and SCOOTER PIE with DJ JESS on the ones and twos. Free Shots after each burlesque set provided by 44 Degrees North Huckleberry Vodka. No Cover! Doors at 930, Burlesque sets at 10 and 11 with the SECRET TRACK at 1am.

But first! Our recap of last week's Shaken and Stirred by Scooter pie:

We brought March in with a BANG here at Shaken & Stirred. What a thrill it was (and, based on the reaction from the audience, our crowd certainly agreed) to have the sideshow spectacular-ity of featured performer the Lady Aye, who wowed us with a daring (and sexy!) straightjacket escape AND "down the hatch without a scratch" sword-swallowing feats! Guest Dame Cuchifrita (of Brown Girls Burlesque fame) brought the hotness- literally- with an act involving candle wax, Iris Explosion made our inner geeks drool with some Ms. Pacman action (complete with marshmallows), and this week's go-go sensation Foxy Vermouth shook it up, down, and all around, and left us wanting more, more, more!! Runaround Sue dazzled with her Snow Lion act (my current fave of hers.. a must-see!), and I did a little tribute to County Cork with an Elvis Costello song. In like a lion? HELL YEAH!! GRRR... See ya next week!

ALBERT CADABRA: The Great Deceiver is a professional, award-winning, comedy sideshow magician who delivers powerful, amazing and devilishly wild magic. Albert pushes and twists the boundaries of the art of magic with unique performances including; eating razor blades and a 3’-long balloon, hammering 6” spikes into his face, electrocuting himself with 2,000 volts of electricity and turning his assistant into a gorilla. He makes people and animals appear and vanish at will and escapes from chains, shackles, locked crates and straight jackets—all with the flair, style, class and great sense of humor you would expect from this seasoned, professional magician.

  1. What does Burlesque mean to you? - Keeping people excited, slightly turned on and completely entertained.

  1. How did you choose your name? - It was given to me at birth.

  1. Who was your first celebrity crush? - Winona Ryder no wait, at 10yo it was Kristy Mcnichol and her perfectly feathered hair!!!

  1. What are you reading these days and why? - Water for Elephant because it has to do with a redhead from upstate NY who runs away and joins the circus. That's my life.

  1. What is your favorite performance anecdote? - It has to be when I was hosting the Rockabilly festival at coney island when my volunteer for the human blockhead was Michelle of Americas Next Top Model fame. When she came up onstage she decided to pull the nail out of my nose using her teeth! It was incredible. Also, after that show I was told she was Michelle from amercas top model, the one with the flesh eating bacteria!!!! Now whenever I do that bit, I tell the my volunteer the story and that they have the choice to use their hands or their teeth and a surprisingly large number will use their teeth. I love it!

  1. Please distill your life philosophy into either a couplet or haiku: Life will never be a bore. If from an audience I hear a big roar!!! It makes me feel good not misunderstood, and that love is mutal of course!

7. How can the people find out more about you? -,
