This past Thursday my partner and I headed down to Coney Island U.S.A. for the Casino O’ Fortune Cookie’s tribute to Bruce Campbell. If you don’t know who Bruce Campbell is, I feel sorry for you. If you do, you understand why this was a show not to be missed.
This was my first Casino O’Fortune Cookie production, and it was amazing. I have to say that sometimes themed shows can be boring or lame, but because Bruce Campbell has a lot of variety in his career, it wasn’t painful. It was awesome.
Anita Cookie, Clams Casino and Neal O’Fortune were great hosts, and I appreciated that Anita Cookie even thought outside the B.C. box enough to do an act inspired by his Old Spice “Hungry Like the Wolf” ad. And Clams Casino’s chin act was an honorable tribute piece.
Sizzle Dizzle’s Autolycus (Xena) act was amazing and Jezebel’s S Mart chainsaw act was fantastic. This show was also my first time seeing Velocity Chyaldd – which is quite an act to take in. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, so I won’t say much except nudity and lots of fake blood.
I am super excited to continue to take in the themed Burlesque shows and hope to be in some in the future!
