Secret Koala Strippers for Amanda Palmer at the Forum, Feb 26th 2011

Video here shows myself and Agent Cleave dancing onstage for Amanda Palmer's gig at the Forum, Melbourne, Feb 26 2011.
Her recent album is title is "Amanda Palmer Down Under", and contains songs all inspired by Australia.....Myself and Anthony aka Agent Cleave were invited to be a secret element to her show- for her song Map of Tasmania (of which the clip features many a fabulous merkin) we were a suprise act organised by her tour manager Eric. We both came onstage in koala suits, proceeded to strip to Aussie bogan flannies and denim cut off shorts, then finally ripped it all off to reveal bejwelled and fluro hair trimmed merkins and nipple covers! Anthony and I made these, as well as making extras for both Eric (tour manager) and one for Amanda herself. Check out the video- the look on her face is priceless- she had no idea!

  3. Spend some time talking with her. In the beginning you will be no different than any other customer but in time you will create a friendly relationship where you can discuss just about anything under the sun. Bring her out of her shell and show her that you are cool with what she does for a living. After all, it is just a job, right? Everybody is naked under their clothes after all, right? strippers for hire
