Sneak Peak at DEITY DELGADO our featured performer for this week's Shaken and Stirred show

Well, April is here my spring chickens! And we are super excited to ring it in at this week's Shaken and Stirred when we featured DEITY with special guest HAZEL HONEYSUCKLE, the gogo goodness of MISS FROSTY and the never ending antics of your trifecta of goodtimes: SCOOTER PIE, DJ JESS AND RUNAROUND SUE! As always, no cover and free huckleberry vodka shots. Gogo starts at 930 with burlesque sets at 10, 11, 12 and a very special secret track at 1am. Join us live at the Delancey (168 Delancey St) or live at

And whatever happened last week... oh who can ever really say? Well here is our lady on the beat, Scooter Pie, with her weekly recap:

"So March ended up coming in like a lamb and out like a lion.. okay, we can deal with that. Add a little Shaken & Stirred to any situation, and we'll dance it out in no time. That crazy gorgeous Bunny Love was our featured performer last night, as always garnering equal amounts of titilated cheers and gasps of shock from the crowd. Charlie Gunn kept things sparkly as our go-go kitten, and wild and wonderful Bambi Galore, our guest, literally set things ablaze (well, her pasties, anyway. Yowza!) onstage. Three contestants duked it out for beer-drinking champ, and Runaround Sue debuted a new limerick (in case you didn't know this, she is funny). See you loves in April! XO"

And now, on to the peeking!!

Deity, the aptly named icon of NYC Burlesque, made her first on-stage appearance at the Blue Angel Cabaret on Walker St in 1994. A native New Yorker, she performed for several years in the world-renowned nightlife capital of Ibiza, Spain. When she returned to New York in 2000 she continued to perform at the Blue Angel Cabaret at Gene Frankel Theater and Cutting Room. Her star rose and her signature style was regularly showcased at The Box. She has since appeared BadAss Burlesque, Nurse Bettie-spanking the LES, Kitty Nights, Coco de Mer salon, The Sunday Show, Hypergender Burlesque, Penny Arcade's BITCH!DYKE!FAGHAG!WHORE!, Shaken and Stirred and more. She is also a makeup artist and expert seamstress. Since 1997, she has designed and sold unique, made-to-measure clothing under the name Heathen Designs. Her work shows influences of Alexander McQueen. Deity's online store

  1. What does Burlesque mean to you?

Burlesque is a glamorous interpretation of my sensual nature, be it funny, sad, sexy, or quirky.

  1. How did you choose your name?
  2. A friend and I were sitting in a coffee shop and we were trying to figure out a name for a prototype social networking site that he wanted to build. It was about super heroes and we came up with the Deity Chronicles. He said I should use Deity as my performer name, so I did. :0)

  1. Who was your first celebrity crush?

My first celebrity crush was John Travolta

  1. What are you reading these days and why?
I'm reading a book about Anita Berber and how she was a brilliant, yet unstable dancer she was. It's called 'The Seven Addictions and Five Professions of Anita Berber' by Mel Gordon.

  1. What is your favorite performance anecdote: My favorite performance anecdote is 'The show must go on!'
