And the Winners are!

Roxi D’Lite, Tootsie’s Cabaret and Spearmint Rhino win big in New Orleans at the 18th Annual ED’s Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show

Hosted by comedian Thea Vidal at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans on August 25th, the “ED’s” are the only national awards show for the multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industry

September 2nd 2015, Clearwater, FL—In one of America’s most historical cities, on the biggest stage in the industry and in front of a capacity crowd, the best of the adult nightclub industry were honored at the 18th Annual ED’s Adult Nightclub and Exotic Dancer Awards Show.  As the glitter settled, famed “bad girl of burlesque” Roxi D’Lite danced away as ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year, Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami Gardens was awarded Overall Gentlemen’s Club of the Year, and Spearmint Rhino was bestowed with the coveted Club Chain of the Year. This year’s show was held at the Civic Theater in downtown New Orleans on August 25th and hosted by Thea Vidale.  Best known for her primetime ABC show “Thea,” as well as “Last Comic Standing” Vidale is a 30-year comedy veteran whose show can be as clean or as dirty as the audience calls for—and the crowd loved every minute of her raunchy repertoire.
