Nothing up her sleeves

Posted in Fun, Video, Weird by Teo

I’m sure most of you have seen it, but for those that haven’t you can check out the amazing, comedic styling of Ursula Martinez, the Stripping Magician.

This short piece called Hankey Pankey combines a handkerchief trick and magic act with striptease and was filmed at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in 2006-2007 in Montreal. She should have invited someone on stage for the last bit to find that red cloth.

Ursula Martinez is a London based Anglo-Spanish writer, performer and cult cabaret diva noted for her use of nudity and non-actors. Her father is British and her mother Spanish. She has worked with experimental theater groups Forced Entertainment, Insomniac Productions, The Glee Club, and Duckie. In the 1990s she began to combine this with her experience in cabaret, establishing a reputation in the queer arts community.

The Theme Music is “A Shot In the Dark” (Pre-Pink Panther films) by Henry Mancini.

Be forewarned, there is nudity. Don’t watch it if you’re easily offended.
