Thursday at 5 p.m.
Odessa Lil brings you behind the curtain so you can get up close and personal with the Bay Area’s most provocative burlesque, variety, and drag performers. She uncovers everything you want to know about the glitz and glam but are afraid to ask…and you never know what will be revealed!
Odessa Lil, Mistress of Ceremonies, is just your average turn-of-the-century wandering domme. Ever since she ran SpeakEasily, the first-ever weekly neo-burlesque show in Oakland back in 2004, Odessa Lil has been whipping audiences into shape at shows like Bombshell Betty’s Burlesqueteers, Barbary Coast Burlesque, Little Minsky’s, The East Bay Express Best of the East Bay Party, Diva or Die Burlesque, and the Hubba Hubba Revue, not to mention film openings, rock shows, fundraisers, and private parties. One of the few female MCs in a scene dominated by men, Odessa Lil spelunks fresh comic territory with an olde-timey flair. Did we just say “spelunks”? Odessa Lil is available to those hiring for weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, funerals, divorce proceedings, difficult labors, home foreclosures, and séances.
