GRAB MY JUNK!
It's a gameshow... and a burlesque show... in one!
Watch in awe as your favorite burlesque performers bump and grind, then get to know them even more intimately, learning their deepest, darkest secrets as you compete for the chance to win terrible prizes! Never fear; fabulous prizes also await, but only if you're brave enough to... GRAB MY JUNK.
First, host Danny McGinlay introduces the celebrity guest performers to an audience full of potential contestants in the best possible way: by bringing them to the stage to present titillating burlesque numbers. Watch carefully as these sexy superstars take off their clothes -- watch even more carefully than usual. Because you might just see something in the striptease that will help you guess the answers to intimate questions about the private lives of these performers.
Answer these inappropriate questions correctly, and in the first rounds, you'll win... Junk! Yes, the early prizes you can grab consist of the useless crap that's been lying around the host or performer's house, like that book he bought for a class in college that he never even opened, or toys from his childhood, or VHS tapes. In the final showdown, winners can trade this crap for actual prizes... but there's a catch. The real goods are all tucked into your host's pants, and in order to claim the valuables, contestants will have to reach in and GRAB MY JUNK.
THIS MONTH AT GMJ!
Ellashaye burst on the Australian Burlesque scene in 2010, bringing together her past rock n roll & latin dancing and showgirl experience, and was instantly taken under the wing of Lola The Vamp and Burlesque agent Jac Bowie. She kicked off her Burlesque career by taking out Miss Burlesque QLD in her first handful of performances, competing against more seasoned performers and as a result instantly starting appearing at Revues and Private Events across the country including The Ruby Revue (Sydney & Melbourne), Dr Sketchys (Sydney & Brisbane) The Shimmy Shake Show (Melbourne) to name a few. The audiences can’t help but adore her.
Already breakout star through the UK and Australia already from appearing in the SBS documentary “Best Undressed”, an award winning showgirl and glamour model, Ellashaye oozes something missing from a lot of neo burlesque performers. She naturally connects with each and every person in the audience, and once that connection is made, they fall in love with her and want to keep her. She’s an adorable little thing but don’t be fooled, she knows how to use that to her advantage!
With a wink, smile and oh my lord that incredible bottom!!! This little ray of sunshine knows how to please any crowd.
Kelly Ann Doll
Pin-up pocket rocket Kelly Ann Doll, with dance moves Fred Astaire himself would be proud of. Trained in both theatre and dance, Kelly Ann Doll is one of the fastest rock n roll dancers in the country, winning competitions as she infuses swing, latin, blues & circus into her act to create a unique combination, never seen before.
This versatility has seen Kelly Ann make waves all across the atlantic and beyond, not only within the
swing dance arena but in the increasingly popular burlesque scene. Having performed in almost every major burlesque review since 2004, she is redefining the form and as such has become one of Australia’s most loved Burlesque exports.
Adding to her magic is her extensive portfolio as a 1940s pin-up model, having been selected by a worldwide vote as one of the most popular new revolution pinups. Just google her name and stand back! This “shining star in the world of Australia’s cabaret scene” bursts onto stage with energy, passion and the cheekiest disposition you will ever see, catch her if you can!
Miss Dream walks… nay, struts the line between Burlesque, comedy and physical theatre. After years doing whatever she could on the stage, her comic timing is flawless. Her high-energy vaudeville acts will have you laughing while her long legs get your hearts-a-pounding. This dreamy doll-face has performed as one half of The Vintage Reds and with Perth’s premier troupe: Sugar Blue Burlesque, Miss Burlesque Melbourne and Miss Burlesque Australia Show Girl Couture. Charming and cheeky, Peachey Dream is the icing on the cheesecake!
Australia’s only Three Michelin Star Comedian, Danny McGinlay has been performing stand up since the age of 16. In that time he has performed all over Australia and done stints in London, New York & the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Danny has been on the television numerous times: Rove, John Saffran’s Race Relations, The Mansion, City Homicide, Stand up Australia, and he had one line in Steven Spielberg’s ‘The Pacific’.
He made his Hollywood debut in the Nicolas Cage thriller ‘Knowing’. He appears in the pivotal opening scene, meaning if you list the cast in order of appearance, he almost has top billing!
