Valentine’s Weekend in Chicago

A message from Michelle L’amour:


Whether you are feeling romantic or rebellious this Valentines, spend the weekend with me and a hand selected cast of beautiful performers. This is the most elevated, sensual, luxurious show I’ve ever put together. The sexy stuff is sexier than ever. The funny stuff is funnier that ever. The epic stuff is, you get the point. I am really excited to see you.

I am premiering a brand new act that will leave you breathless. I hope to transport you to someplace magical that you’ve only dreamed about. Plus, I’m doing a very imaginative duet with Jett Adore!

Le Nu is a European-inspired evening where guests will be immersed in the sumptuous surroundings of Carnivale’s Samba Room and served decadent desserts while me and a hand picked collection of amazing musicians, dancers, absurdist clowns and more entertain you. Beyond that, I dare not share the indulgent details of this steamy show. You’ll have to be there to find out. Trust me, you will never be the same.

It is the perfect addition to your romantic plans for Valentine’s weekend. I hope to see you there.

SIX INTIMATE SHOWS – February 13 and 14

Five Questions with Matty Ryan

Matty Ryan is a Wiggle Room favorite. Born and bred in Chicago, he’s desperately trying to keep from growing into an adult. Check Matty out on Facebook and Follow him n Twitter.

WR: You’re a nap enthusiast.  What was the best nap you ever had?

2MattyRyanMR: Hmm.  It’s too difficult for me to pinpoint a specific nap that reigns supreme, but I can accurately say which kind of nap is my favorite.  That would be when you wake up in the morning, check your phone, and then immediately take a nap.  Preferably without getting out of bed.

WR: The Chicago Reader called you (and Kenny DeForest) a “charming bro”?  Are you more charming or more bro?

MR: [Laughs] Yeah that was weird.  I was almost offended by the bro implication, but I know the author of the piece and knew it was in jest.  To answer your question, I would have to say all charm, no bro.  For the brahs: all C, no B.

WR:  What topics are off limits for you on stage?

MR: I don’t necessarily have any topics that are inherent no-no’s, but I generally stay away from things that could potentially marginalize a group of people; i.e gender, race, sexual orientation, etc.  Not that these subjects should be avoided or tiptoed around; material surrounding these topics can be incredibly funny, as long as said material is not hateful or purposefully and pointlessly offensive.  However, if the group in question is, say, racist hill-people, that’s a different story.  Those dudes are the worst.  Oh, I do have a joke about how Russians largely creep me out, but Liza Treyger gave me permission to talk about it.  She’s one of the good ones.

WR: What’s the cutest name you’ve ever called a lover?

MR: Oh jeez. Probably “Sweet, Sweet Bear.”  Or maybe “Snuggly Bear.”  Not sure which one’s worse.

WR: What’s the worst thing someone has called you? Was it accurate?

MR: There’s a lot to choose from in this department.  I’m going to go with “real piece of shit.”  When said with the proper inflection, it can be just about the worst.  And yes, it is abundantly accurate.
