The Burlesque Dancer & The Clown with Lili VonSchtupp and Funny Eddie

Lili Von Schtupp & Eddie Medrano


Warning: I’ve rated this interview as an “E” on itunes. An “E” in the podcast world means EXPLICIT. This interview has both adult content and a little adult language. So, if you’re offended by that sort of thing, don’t listen. However, if you like that sort of thing, please share this episode with all your friends.

One had the longest running weekly Burlesque show in L.A. history, runs the Hollywood Burlesque Festival and has been named twice as one of the burlesque top 50 for 21st Century Burlesque magazine.

One is former Marine and Ringling Brothers Clown. He’s an award-winning balloon artist, magician, juggler and all-around variety performer.

We talk about Burlesque shows, running away to join the circus, vagic and much more. Eddie and Lili even mess with a listener without him even knowing it (Rob, you’re a good sport). And is that dog real? I’ll let you decide.
