Eric the Midget Joins Hustlers Ballby Ray | August 22nd, 2008
LAS VEGAS, NV — Perry Mann’s Exotic Erotic Strippers and Hustlers Ball (August 30 and 31, Orleans Arena, Las Vegas) has announced that Eric the Midget from The Howard Stern Show has joined its Labor Day weekend talent lineup.
Eric the Midget, born as Eric Lynch, is one of the most popular members of The Howard Stern Show’s Wack Pack. Eric is 3 foot 5 inches short, weighs 85 lbs, and is a virgin. He is known for being extremely belligerent and insulting, frequently berating members of the Stern show (such as referring to Stern as “big nose” or “jackass”, Robin Quivers as “the cackling bitch” and Artie Lange as “fat ass”).
He is a self-styled “expert” on American Idol, known for his rabid fandom of that show, and especially past winners Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.
“We already had so much talent lined up for our first-ever Vegas event,” says producer Perry Mann, who also founded SF’s massively popular Exotic Erotic Ball, “but it just didn’t seem complete. So we had a staff meeting and determined that we were missing one thing – a cantankerous little person. Eric the Midget is the prototype, and we are fortunate to have him. We look forward to working with him in his role as an obnoxious and ungrateful annoyance and general pain in the butt, which we hope takes enough of an edge off the general revelry, so that nobody overdoses on merriment and fun.”
The talent lineup for this event already includes Richard Vission, who will headline the first night, which also features Scooter and Lavelle, Drummer KC, Gen-XX, and Mobius8. Gilby Clarke – a longtime member of Guns N’ Roses, and star of CBS’ Rockstar: Supernova, will join the Genitorturers – the world’s sexiest band – as headliners for the second night, which also features D’Amato, and Girls Girls Girls. Chuck Nutt will perform the event’s theme song My Stripper Lover, written by Perry Mann. Arielle Paige will make her Las Vegas debut. The host is the sinister and stylish Paul Nathan.
Penthouse Pet of the Year Erica Ellyson will be in attendance. For the ladies, The Men of Playgirl will be performing both nights.
Adult studio Pink Visual – known for its artistry and design – will design the official poster for the event. Sex Vodka will be unveiling hot new drinks for the occasion. Two local Las Vegas favorites – Snake-Babe and Box-Man – will be performing. Snake-Babe is known for her dance exploits while draped with a serpent (or two), and Box-Man is a world-famous contortionist. Johnny Fratto – personality, businessman, reality TV producer, friend of Eric the Midget, and also a frequent guest on The Howard Stern Show will be showcasing his latest venture – Mob Candy Magazine.
Bobbi Billard, the multitalented myspace vixen who is ranked as the #1 most downloaded babe on the internet, will be on hand along with Asian supermodel Akira Lane to host some on-stage antics. Both ladies are stars of the horror classic remake Ice Scream – The Remix. The Porcelain Twinz and Schevelle will also perform both nights.
Strippers from Déjà vu, Palomino, Club Paradise and Olympic Gardens will compete for over $20,000 in cash and prizes both nights. The categories for the competition are Best Body, Best Dancer, and Best Pole Dancer. The semifinals will occur on stage at the Ball on August 30th, and the finals on August 31st. The competition will be hosted by Heather Chadwell from VH-1’s Rock of Love and I Love Money.
Says Mann – “The Strippers and Hustlers Ball is designed to top anything else Las Vegas has to offer this Labor Day Weekend!”
