Joey Lawrence is dancing for dollars. As a stripper. Whoa. Seriously.
Lawrence just started a three-week run as a “special guest” for the most infamous all male revue, the Chippendale’s, at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.
According to their website, “Chippendales The Show' features 12 physically perfect male dancers who delight the audience with a series of disarmingly sexy yet tasteful routines.”
They also drop “female fantasies” and claim it’s “the perfect blend of music, hot dance moves, and sensual theatrics.”
The singing, dancing TV actor/Broadway performer/all around entertainer whose currently between gigs seems perfectly suited for that bow tie.
Lawrence talked to Entertainment Tonight about his decision to get nearly naked for masses of hormonally crazed Midwestern tourists. He defended the shows relevance with, “I think the whole male revue thing is coming back,” making a reference to the forthcoming male stripper flick, Magic Mike.
He also added, “You know, I’ve never done anything like this my entire life, and I figured, what the heck…”
And “Life is short, sometimes you gotta just throw caution to the wind and do something crazy, and that’s why I’m here.”
On a local news interview he referred to himself as the “cherry on top of a sundae”….
So if your idea of a delicious dessert is a pile of sweaty dudes who can’t find their shirts, but dress it up anyway, then you should definitely go (tickets are $40 to $60).
Otherwise, place your vote for Lawrence to appear in the “Dancing with the Stars” all-star line up. Then you can watch him shake his butt for free. And you won’t have be subjected to the screams of full grown “Gimme A Break” fans combined with the stench of body sweat and baby oil.
