For our March session, we’re thrilled to have Delilah Dentata and Jim Dandy as our models! Jim is a veteran Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey clown, and Delilah is an award-winning burlesque performer; this incredibly funny and talented duo are also the producers and hosts of DMVariety’s “Yolks on You” burlesque and variety brunch down in DC. Come join us for what’s sure to be a hilarious night of drinks and drawing!

Here’s more about our March muses:

Delilah Dentata is a multiple-award-winning DC-based burlesque and variety performer, host, and producer. She’s got sass! She’s got sensuality! She’s got a shitload of weird facial expressions with which to unnerve you! She is truly an icon.

Delilah has delighted audiences all over the East Coast, mid-Atlantic, and Midwest with her strangely sexy burlesque numbers and penetrating eye contact that lasts just a touch too long. She has performed in Astro Pop Events’ Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club, as well as with TBD Immersive, an immersive theater experience in Washington, DC, as well as Otakon, Super Art Fight, Dr. Sketchy’s, and Naked Girls Reading. 

In addition, Delilah is the co-producer of a number of successful shows, including DMVariety’s “Yolks on You” burlesque and variety brunch and Beaver and Buttstuff Production’s “Conspiratease: Burly Q-Anon” and “Make It Clapton: A Burlesque and Variety Tribute To Your Dad’s Favorite Music.” She swears it’s all very dignified, really. 

You can find her on Instagram at @delilah_dentata, on Facebook, or in your weirdest, most unsettling dreams. 

Jim Dandy got his performance debut in Madison Square Garden with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as their beloved punk rock clown.  Sporting bondage pants, a leather jacket, and trademark green chaos spiked wig, he performed for 5 years as a travelling clown where he appeared on numerous news channels, commercials, a video game, and newspapers.  During that time his performance style was described as “oblique” “zany” and “would make Sid Vicious die a second death.”  Sidenote: he is fairly certain he’s the only one in Ringling history who had the phrase “getting pussy” in a media hit.

Since then he’s brought his unique blend of vaudevillian punk rock charm to his ancestral homeland of Washington DC where he co-produces the quarterly variety brunch show “Yolks on You” and stars in Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club, America The Game Show: Fuck Yeah!, Otakon, Anime USA, Festival of Doom, ABSFest, and much more!  Jim Dandy will do anything for a laugh and this is shown as he cavorts and capers while juggling, tap dancing, fire eating, whip cracking, telling jokes, performing classic sideshow stunts, and more; sometimes all in one act!  

Needless to say, he’s a busy fellow but loves meeting people on Instagram at @jimdandyfunny or on Facebook

Enjoy a delicious cocktail or three and join in our crazy drawing contests for a chance to win some free booze and other neat prizes! No drawing experience is necessary—just remember to bring your own drawing materials, and be ready to generously tip our models!

DRINKTICKET

A few things to know about our venue!

As Creative Alliance will be handling our ticket sales through their website and box office, a service fee will be applied to transactions made online or over the phone and in-person ticket sales made within three hours of the event. You can avoid this fee by purchasing tickets in person at Creative Alliance the day before or earlier (they’re open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.). Creative Alliance members save on admission to Sketchy’s and the variety of other events and workshops CA has to offer, so if you look through their calendar and like what you see, consider becoming a CA member!

Lastly, if you’ve found yourself in a back row at past Sketchy’s sessions, unable to see the model from the waist-down without having to stand, take note: Creative Alliance’s theater is huge, has a slightly higher stage than the Windup’s, and there are no columns or giant speakers between you and the model, so we expect most attendees should have a head-to-toe view of the model! You’re also more likely to be able to get a seat at a table. We still encourage you to arrive early for the best seats, and Creative Alliance advises that seats are only held for ticket buyers for 25 minutes after an event starts.
