Alia Janine’s, the infamous porn star turned comedian, and her production comedy; Hardcore Comedy Entertainment will premiere The Hardcore Comedy Show! This is the first adult/sex industry based stand-up comedy show in New York City at Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club on Wednesday, July 22nd at 8:30pm.
“This is the show I’ve been planning to do before my AVN nomination for Mainstream Star of the Year for doing comedy. I wanted to gather all of the adult and sex industry workers and put them on one show, The Hardcore Comedy Show. Coming from LA and Vegas I didn’t think it could happen in New York City, until I met some of today’s top and up and coming comics that have also worked in the adult and sex industries. Anyone from strip club bouncers and pimps to webcam models and escorts, these former industry workers are now climbing the ranks in the comedy scene. This show is not only to have some of the hardest comedy out there, but to also showcase some very talented comedians.” –Alia Janine
The Hardcore Comedy Show will be a star-studded evening of comedians featuring: Big Jay Oakerson, Bob Levy, Dante Nero, Aaron Berg, Jaqi Furback and Lauryn Petrie.
