Batman and Schevelle: Living Large for Thanksgiving


130 Miles from Iowa, USABig Earl’s clubs in Iowa are putting a new spin on Thanksgiving stuffing, with a new twist on the big, beautiful woman scene and Tony Batman and Schevelle will be your master and mistress of ceremonies for the big event.

Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28, 2009, there will be no fluff as plus-size dancers take to the stage at Big Earl’s locations in Des Moines and Davenport, competing for the chance to win a $1000 prize.

Batman is looking forward to the event, “Friday we will hold the contest for the Des Moines ladies, then we move to Davenport for the second contest. This is going to be a huge event and Schevelle and I are happy to be invited. I stole this gig from my buddy, Ron Jeremy and I think he’s going to envy me the experience of a lifetime this presents. . . Kidding Ron!

“Seriously though, this is a great opportunity for girls that have wanted to dance, but didn’t think they could fit into the showgirl mold to start building experience and a following. Schevelle and I will be giving the entrants our full support during these two contests and I think Big Earl’s has a great idea in opening up to the BBW girls and their fans.”

This dynamic duo isn’t going to let the opportunity to spread good will end with the contests, and plan something more. “Tony and I are going to spend our day on Thanksgiving volunteering at a shelter, dishing up meals for people that otherwise wouldn’t have a Thanksgiving of their own,” said Schevelle.

Batman agrees, “Yes, we are doing some good works for our holiday weekend. Schevelle and I are scheduled for interviews with WGGO Classic Rock with Clutch, Kiss 107.5 and Lazer 103.3, where we will not only talk about the contests and our travels on the show circuit, but also about voluntarism. We are very happy that we have gotten so much coverage for our time here. In Iowa, three radio stations interviewing us is pretty much a media blitz!”

Big Earl’s Goldmine is located at 4745 NW 2nd Avenue in Des Moines. Phone 515-237-9902. Big Earl’s Amsterdam is at 643 East 59th in Davenport, Iowa. Phone 563-468-4653.

Fetish Nation: Fashion Passion Hosts Official Dirty Show After-Party

DirtyShowGraphic250 Hollywood, California – Since it’s inception at the turn of the Millennium, The Dirty Show has been entertaining and enlightening the masses with a delightfully deviant art event. Saturday, November 14, 2009 The Dirty Show sets up for the first time in The City of Angels, and what better place to carry on their nocturnal festivities than at the center of all things lusciously lascivious; Fetish Nation’s ‘Fashion Passion’ at the Circus Disco in Hollywood?

With a heavy dose of double-entendre, The Dirty Show’s founder, Jerry Vile said, “We knew that The Dirty Show craved a massive climax for our virgin voyage in Los Angeles. We had spoken with artist friends like Justice Howard and 1019, about a huge fetish oriented event that was taking place in Hollywood on the second Saturday of each month. Everyone who had attended Fetish Nation described it as a fourth dimensional orgasm for the senses. Since our show was going to fall on that weekend, we contacted Cameron of Chaos Productions and Brandt Stebbins of Intense Management, Inc., the producers of Fetish Nation and asked if we could slide into their event for our after-party. We were delighted that the accepted our advances.”

The Dirty Show artists and organizers will join Fetish Nation’s Fetish Fashionistas for a special cat-walk extravaganza presented by latex couture specialists, Venus Prototype. Featured model for the fashion show is burlesque diva, Sin Fisted.

Stebbins said, “The Dirty Show is a one of a kind experience, and so is Fetish Nation. Each presentation brings out a different group of artists and performers, but every show is about the same thing; Sexual expression in all of its varied forms. The only difference is that Fetish Nation happens once a month, and Jerry and his crew do it twice a year. I am please to say that this time we were both in the same place at the right time to celebrate the freedom of erotic expression together.”

Tony Batman and Schevelle on MSNBC


Dallas, Texas – The dynamic duo of Tony Batman and his showgirl partner, Schevelle found themselves facing the cameras of MSNBC on October 27, 2009, as Dallas strip club owner, Dawn Rizos placed her American Solutions for Winning the Future refund check into doing good for animals in a Texas animal shelter.

Roving reporter for the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC, Kent Jones arrived at The Lodge with many questions for Rizos. Before the adult entrepreneur sat down to answer his questions about how The Lodge had come into the nomination process for the “Entrepreneur of the Year” award, sponsored by the conservative group headed by former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, Rizos arranged for Batman and Schevelle to guide him through the inner workings of the club.

Schevelle reminisces, “Dawn introduced Tony and me to Kent, and we showed him the trophy room where The Lodge displays their awards and the VIP areas of the club, as well as introducing him to some of the house dancers. Then I sat down to dinner with Kent, as he sampled the award winning lobster and Angus steak dinner, that has made The Lodge famous in Dallas. Kent asked us a lot of questions, and was very polite to me.”

However, Batman reports much less enthusiasm on the part of Jones and MSNBC’s line producers in attendance during the taping of the segment, regarding his ties to the adult entertainment industry. “I was talking to Kent about my long association with both the Gentlemen’s clubs across the US and my involvement with the adult film industry, and he started to become very uncomfortable at the mention of adult films. He told me that he didn’t want porn to become part of his report. It never ceases to amaze me that talking about strip clubs is okay in most people’s versions of ‘Polite conversation’, but mention the adult entertainment industry and all of a sudden it turns into an uncomfortable silence. That double standard needs to end. I know in my heart that Schevelle would have had at least half of the 30 odd minutes of interview she taped with Kent Jones end up on air, if he hadn’t learned that I have ties to the adult industry and that Schevelle is interested in doing some web cam and video work in the future. Even though Schevelle did get some screen time on the show, it was of her sitting with Kent at dinner, and none of the actual interview he did with her.”

Schevelle finds good in the whole situation however, “I think that Dawn Rizos made a very good decision. I am so proud of her and I enjoyed being part of her announcement that she is using the money Gingrich’s group tried to bilk her out of for a good cause. She is taking that $5000 she was going to pay American Solutions for a fake award, and is putting it into funding an animal shelter. That money will help innocent victims of misguided public hatred and scorn; namely abused and abandoned pit bulls and other animals deemed as too dangerous or undesirable to place into regular pet adoption programs. Someday, even people like Newt Gingrich, and people that think like him, will realize that all living things should be treated with compassion and dignity and given help and comfort when they are in need. To me and Tony, Dawn is much more of an upstanding human being for realizing that and acting on it, than for any bogus award she might have been offered a chance at buying.”

Schevelle and Batman are still touring the US, performing stage shows at Gentlemen’s Clubs. They will be appearing at various adult nightclubs in Nevada and California during the month of November.
