Exotic Dancer (ED) Publications, producers of the ED Club Bulletin magazine, the Annual Gentlemenís Club Owners Expo and the Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show, is pleased to announce the 2011 EDís Awards Show winners. The 14th Annual Awards Show & Receptionó"A Black & White Bash"ówas hosted by popular comedian Nick Di Paolo and was held inside the Grand Ballroom at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Tuesday, August 23. The ED's Awards Show is held each year during the Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners Expo.
The eveningís biggest awards went to Christina Aguchi, who was crowned EDís Overall Entertainer of the Year; Delilahís Gentlemenís Club in Philadelphia, who took home the Overall Club of the Year Award; Rickís Cabaret, which garnered the prestigious Club Chain of the Year Award; and longtime club executives Randy Beasley and Duke Dearing, who were inducted into the Exotic Dancer Hall of Fame.
"As the only national awards show for the multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industry, it is a pleasure for us to continually honor the best adult nightclubs and feature entertainers from across the country," says EDís Publisher, Don Waitt. "Our Awards Show guests really embraced our ĎBlack & White Bashí theme, and our host and comedian Nick Di Paolo certainly didnít disappoint!"
In addition to Di Paoloís presence, there were also several special guests at the 2011 EDís Awards Show. National recording artist Jean Morisson joined the showís "house" band, Vegas legends the Crashers, as she sang a rocking version of Alanis Morissetteís "You Oughta Know," while Grammy-winning guitarist Vernon Reid of Living Colour joined the band as they tore through the Jimi Hendrix classic, "Foxy Lady."
"Ronnie the Limo Driver" of Howard Stern Show fame, who has become a regular at the EDís Awards Show and Annual Expo, fired the capacity crowd up as an awards show special guest presenter. Other guest presenters included the gorgeous adult film starlets Nikki Benz, Alexis Texas, Teagan Presley and Devon Lee, along with award-winning feature entertainer Jade Simone St. Clair.
In addition to the awards typically presented each year, for the first time ever, the 2011 EDís Awards Show celebrated the "small" club with the Small Club of the Year Awards (clubs under 5,000 square feet). "With so many great, multi-million-dollar clubs in this industry, it becomes harder and harder for the smaller clubs to stand out in the crowd," says Waitt. "Thatís why we felt that it was time we honor those clubs who, despite their smaller size, are no less successful or award-worthy."
The one new entertainer-related award for 2011 was the Miss ExoticDancer.com Award. Each feature entertainer who has been featured as Miss ExoticDancer.com of the month (which began in October 2010) was eligible to win.
Award nominations were accepted online at www.theEDawards.com for a two-week period in June/July. Based primarily on these votes, as well as input from the ED staff, these award nominees appeared on the Final Awards Ballot.
