For Trick: Bordello Bar Comedy , Emily Maya Mills and Brandie Posey aim to "explode hearts with a holiday extravaganza fit for virgins and atheists alike." Just like Jesus would if he hosted comedy shows. The two are dead-set on topping Trick's November debut, which featured Maria Bamford, Jimmy Pardo and Matt Braunger. Along with top stand-ups Natasha Leggero and Mike Phirman, they're taking advantage of Bordello's boudoir vibe and have added onstage dancers to the mix. But, as Mills spills, "Even the dancing serves the funny. It's also like being inside a pair of really pretty panties." She promises you can take your photo with Santa and his deranged elves, enjoy original songs like "The Kwanzaa Song" by Hannah Gansen and "Christmas Is Canceled" by Chuck Watkins, "and be danced upon by professionally trained lunatics in candy-cane tights. And of course we have Moshe Kasher, America's favorite Jew comedian." But what about the non-believers? "Most comedians are atheists, so for the non-believers we'll have a lot of questions and a great deal of alcohol."
