Wednesday night I attended Delilah’s 8th Annual Diamond G-String Award. It’s the only competition of its kind, and is open to dance teams. Entertainers and individuals from around the country work the stage and stripper pole and battle it out for the $10,000 winner-take-all prize. The annual event usually draws a nice crowd of who’s who on the young social circuit, as well as regulars, those who enjoy watching erotic dancing, the curious and the uninhibited. The place was packed; the atmosphere was a huge Mardi Gras.
Host for the evening was Robert Schimmel, recently named one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Standups of All Time.” Schimmel is in remission from cancer, but Arthur Kade reports on his blog that the popular comedian is scheduled for a liver transplant next week. Danny Bonaduce gave a tribute to Schimmel, praising him for being an inspiration to him.
