Pinny may be a newbie to burlesque but she is no stranger to attention. She’s been shined, minted, saved, and spent long before The Randy Dandies snatched her up. Her and Mimi go way back… to a land full of winged creatures. Since those angelic days, Pinny dropped the nice-girl act and traded it in for a dirty, humorous, strip-tease act and the rest is glittery history. Pinny will tease, shake, and grind all while makin’ ‘em laugh. Lucky for you folks, this Pinny can’t be saved
The climb to stardom had come crashing to a halt for former child actor Footlong Frank. Having metaphorically and literally outgrown the role of spunky youth, Footlong looked to the masked wrestling ring as a platform to stage “The Comeback of the Century”. After winning the Championship belt as Universe Man, the world appeared to once again be Footlong’s oyster. Unfortunately, in what would be Footlong’s last match due to contract complications, a most heinous betrayal left Footlong Frank jobless, hopeless, and worst of all beltless. Taking pity upon Footlong Frank, The Randy Dandies did what any good nature group of funny folk would. They trained the ape and used him in their shows.
