This past month we were honored to have hosted the biggest outdoor nude dance contest in the world, which has been highlighted on the travel channel, Playboy TV, HBO, TMZ, and was named one of the top 10 sexiest things to do in your lifetime by MSN Travel network. To get to Roselawn we flew from our Planet Platypus Network studios in Miami to Chicago and drove the short way to Indiana.
The 2015 Nudes A Poppin Exotic Dance Competition & Festival weekend celebrated its 40th Anniversary of the internationally acclaimed event at the Ponderosa Sun Club in Roselawn, Indiana.
The 40th Anniversary show was hosted by my self, my 13th year in a row, Ron Jeremy (33rd year), Chicago radio personality Freak (19th year). Mikey V (18th year), Sunny Lane (4th year) and country music star Ira Dean formally of Trick Pony was our Music Star celebrity co host. Ira was very cool to work with and we had a lot of fun talking about the beautiful naked women as we introduced them on stage.
On the Friday before the is always a big Italian dinner put on by Grillin N Chillin’s Shelley and her “Pasta Queens” Volunteers who are full time residents of the Ponderosa Sun Club, the nudist camp where the Nudes A Poppin Festival is held every year. After the dinner the Indiana rock band “3 Piece” played for the contestants, staff, and vendors.
Saturday began the competitions, its always hard for us to get used to this weekends schedule as we have to be ready at 8am each day, but it’s the most fun event we do all year so, we barely feel the lack of sleep. The erotic pole dance contest kicked it off, then the Miss Rising Star first round, then its back to the “Pit” as we call it, an in the round stadium type stage built on the property for our annual “Sex Games” Contests.
Sunday is the biggest and longest day of the event, 8am to 8am is a very long time for an emcee to be on stage, on the 90 degree sun drenched stage. But who would listen if we complained that there were just too many naked women around us? This is probably why the Nudes A Poppin Festival has continued to grow bigger and bigger in each of its 40 years.
There were hundreds of events and competitors and below we would like to announce some of the top female winners from the event:
Miss Nude Entertainer of the Year
Miss Nudes North America title
Miss Nude Galaxy
Miss Nude Rising Star
Miss Nude Petite Galaxy
Tony Batman Talk Show’s “Most Sensual Dancer”
The Mr. Nude Entertainer of the year, Miss Nude Go Go, and several other awards and titles were given out during the competition as well. We would say there were close to 100 people in the competition and around 10,000 people in the crowd over the weekend.
We flew back to our South Florida home on the following Monday and instantly began preparations for that weeks Tony Batman Talk Show, which we recorded at the Planet Platypus Studios the next day… There really is no rest for the wicked, or the guy they nicknamed Batman…………
Join us next month as we will be heading to the Monroe’s of Palm Beach club for a big party there, and then we are off to the 2015 Exotic Dancer Gentlemen’s Club Expo & Awards Show in New Orleans.
