Lucha VaVoom Cinco de Mayan!


LOS ANGELES, April 17, 2009 — The masterminds that brought you the L.A. institution of Lucha VaVOOM will transform the historic Mayan Theatre into L.A.’s very own Carnival when they usher in their newest spectacle, Cinco de Mayan, on May 5. This one-night-only event promises to be the premiere party for Angelenos looking to ring in Cinco de Mayo, Mexico’s Independence Day. Tickets for this standing-room only bonanza are available now for $40 via or in person at Wacko in Los Feliz or Brat in Santa Monica. Rita D’Albert and Liz Fairbairn have been pushing the envelope in L.A. for the past six years, most recently, introducing Orange County, Ventura and San Francisco to their patented blend of “sexo y violencia.” This inaugural celebration, will include their beloved one-two punch of masked Mexican wrestling and saucy striptease, yet evolve into a whole new experience. Over the course of the night, revelers will encounter strolling mariachis, a donkey photo booth, Aztec dancers, salsa dancers and go-go dancers with the night erupting into a full-on Mexican dance party.

This night is certain to be historic as the one-and-only, Mexican luchador Blue Demon, Jr. will not only make his triumphant return to the ring but also make his international cabaret debut alongside the world renowned Carolina Cerasola. Famed flamboyant Cassandro, never to be outdone, will make a dance debut of his own. The Crazy Chickens (both big and mini), Dirty Sanchez, Chilango, Shamu, Jr., the Calaveras and of course the menacing Chupacabra will just be a few of the spandex-stretching brawlers.
No “Lucha VaVOOM Presents” event would ever be complete without a healthy dose of titillation and this one guarantees to offer a bevy of saucy beauties. Gypsy Roze, Bonita LaBelle, Lola La Ceraza and Karis, the hula-hooped wonder, will all take to the stage and take it off.

It’s this kind of eye-popping entertainment that led to Lucha VaVOOM’s recent nomination for an American Latino Award for “Favorite Live Performance/Staged Production.” The award, given to “innovative” shows that “think outside of the mainstream,” is selected by popular vote; to cast your vote as well as see all the categories and nominees, head over to The polls close June 12 at midnight.
