Downtown Phoenix's First Friday art walk experienced some growing pains in the past year. Streets were closed off and then reopened. Merchant tents relocated or disappeared. But this flux birthed a host of new First Friday events, including The Firehouse's new sketch comedy-slash-variety show starring such locals as Shaikh Sammad, Anna Moncada, Dwayne Holmes, and John Luther, of the band Haymarket Squares. We love the organic feel of the show, which features new skits every month and brings in guest artists, from the Strange Family Circus and Mizz Lucy Morals of Scandalesque Burlesque to Hooves (who perform the show's theme song) and event co-founder Aaron Johnson. The cast never fails to shock, whether poking fun at the "birther bill" loonies or casting the Pope's disdain for condoms in a funnier light.

Huge ups to Firehouse which is a unique venue and an amazing cast of peops who deserve this award! <3 Lucy


While Mizz Lucy graciously accepts the mention it should be made clear that she is not, nor has she ever been affiliated with Scandalesque. Mizz Lucy Morals is the writer, director, producer and key emcee for Romantasy Cabaret. She is also the director of VavaVoom! her professional burlesque & dance troupe. While Scandaelesque is also a valley entertainment group, Scandalesque and Romantasy Cabaret are two very different entities, producing their own unique brand of show. Scandalesque is more Burlesque-meets-Vegas and Romantasy Cabaret is more Vaudeville meets Cabaret. Both shows have entertainment value however Lucy is the brainchild of Romantasy Cabaret. Thank you.
