Magical Promotions Presents: Jingle BOOBS and ChestNUTS A Very Vaudevillian Coney Christmas Filled with Burlesque & Magic, Fridays, December 7, 14, 21, 9pm!
photo

Magical Promotions, together with Coney Island USA, presents an evening of Christmas chaos filled with titillating holiday inspired performances for ADULTS only. Hosted by Gary Dreifus, award-winning magician, mentalist, hypnotist, magic instructor and world-renowned magical host, the cast of performers for this special event include:

Lee Alan
Award winning Magic from one of the top stand-up comedy magicians in the country, Lee Alan is an icon at Coney Island USA. With his background in acting and improv combined with magical skills, Lee always leaves his audience in amazement and laughter!

Teagan Brown
Teagan Brown is not your typical entertainer. He started training in dance at the age of six and received a scholarship to the Broadway Dance Center in NYC. Combining dance and magic allows Teagan to entertain and bring the full package to audiences.

Belle DeVere
Belle DeVere is a stage kitten from London who recently made her burlesque debut in Coney Island. She is a fan of being naked in private as often as possible. It took her over 3 years to build up the courage to take her clothes off in front of an audience, but now that she's started, she just can't stop!

Carl Mercurio
Classic blend of comedy and magic by the world-class author, magician and humorist. Carl has performed at venues large and small, spreading magic and cheer worldwide.

Omar Olusion
Omar is a magician who has performed his unique style of entertainment for Ripley's Believe It or Not, Spike TV and NY Carousel. He is one of the funniest, zaniest performers to ever grace the Coney Island stage.

Ms. May Ven
Ms. May Ven has been around the block more times than she may care to admit and it shows, but she doesn’t care. She loves Coney Island, the smell of fresh leather and cheeze on anything you pleeze. She is ready to put a new spin on her act and light up the stage with a special holiday vibe.

HO HO HO! Have the opportunity to sit on the big man’s lap! Are you naughty or nice? Santa will use his magic to know if you deserve a spanking or a treat! Bring your camera or phone to capture the moment! $5 additional fee.

18 to enter. 21+ with proper I.D. to drink.
