{Currently Reading} Lucille Ball & My Newest Act

If you know me at all you'll know that I'm an avid reader, as indicated by the stacks of books by the bedside, the somewhat disheveled and full-to-the-brim bookcases in my living room, the choice two books on the top of my weekend bag. Reading is the escape from my ever busy mind. And I'll let you in on a little secret...

Many of my burlesque acts draw inspiration from literary characters -- (Can you guess which act was inspired by Madam Bovary?)

And I must admit, I feel lately as though I'm in a relationship with Lucille Ball. I've been reading her autobiography and I'm absolutely helpless (or hopeless, I'm not sure which.) Do I look tired to you? It's most likely because Lucille and I have been spending nights together, completely unable to sleep, as her story has me wrapped around her little finger.

I've always admired and learned from the comedienne, but now I'm falling in love with the dramatic Lucy as well. This elegant Lucy is reinforcing what I've always believed -- that the sexiest women are always accompanied by a wink and a smile, that is to say a sense of humor.

This weekend, in Dallas, you can see my latest act inspired by the rarely seen, but absolutely important, sensual side of the ever fabulous Lucille Ball. Tickets: http://www.prekindle.com/promo/id/22815447475858364

Have a comedic & fabulous day! xo, Jolie
