Like strip poker
without the cards, This or That! brings adult entertainment to
television in a way everyone will love! Polyester-clad
host Fred Kahl calls out Now That’s Entertainment to encourage
and congratulate contestants for taking off their clothes, getting
into a giant balloon or naming that smell. Bootylicious co-host
Julie Atlas Muz calls the shots as contestants vie for cash, prizes,
or the chance to be spanked. The fun and humiliation climax when
the "winning" contestant chooses one of two curtains: "This" or "That",
out of which emerges either a classic burlesque hottie or an act
that stinks so bad it’s brilliant.
A variety of hot and hilarious acts fill the bill: the curvaceous
This or That Girls, the well endowed Wonderful Woman, a borsht
belt Ukulele player and a mad Russian sorceress. Contestants act
out their fantasies without actually having to run away from home
to join the burlesque show. Home viewers and the live studio audience
cheer on contestants as they meet the show's challenges answering
trivia questions, stuffing marshmallows in their mouth, and guessing
the weight of Wonderful Woman's rack. Now That's Entertainment!
Fred Kahl, A.K.A. The Great Fredini, is the Host
and Creator of “This
or That!”. Drawing on his extensive experience as MC, sword
swallower, and magician, improvisation wizard Fredini works his
magic on audience members enticing them to leave their inhibitions
behind while having the time of their life!

This or That presents a wide assortment of unusual variety acts

from a world champion knife thrower to a balancing act a la Cirque
Every show relies on the assistance of the This or That
played by veteran burlesque performers Bambi and Bunny
Luv. The This or That Girls join contestants in some
of the show’s
wilder challenges: the Sexy Banana Eating Contest or Striptease
Musical Chairs. A cast of loser acts is offered by Bradford
Scobie an improvisational actor whose characters include
Ukelele Louie, Doctor Donut, Mr. Monsieur the mime, and many
others. Other burlesque
treats include the balloon poppin’ Miss Dirty Martini, Lady
Ace sitting on a birthday cake, and The World
Famous Bob, Part
Mae West, part Marilyn Monroe, making the perfect Martini. Guess
where she keeps the olive?
