Before Amy Schumer or Sarah Silverman...before Joan Rivers or Roseanne, Belle Barth was the original, irreverent female comic deflating anyone who dare take sex too seriously.
Belle Barth burst on the 1950s Miami Beach scene as the “female” Lenny Bruce. The self-proclaimed founder of “Ball Breakers Anonymous,” this purveyor of dirty jokes had an attitude that made her off-limits for Ed Sullivan. Belle topped the charts of the Adult Only record section. Her records were the forbidden fruit of the Fifties—with 3 million of her “party records” serving as sex education for today's baby boomers. Her nightclub act was SRO from Miami to Chicago, New York to Vegas to LA.
In Belle's words: "I talk dirty in a cute way!"
Raunchy Little Musical is an evening with this pioneer of edgy comedy peppered with plenty of Belle Barth’s original jokes. Poignant moments from her private life and loves emerge – as well as high and low comedy.
The show portrays the life of the nightclub diva with a salute to the circuit of stars and sensibility of the 50's and beyond. Backed by a three-piece on-stage band, nationally known actor/singer/comedienne, Sara DelBeato belts the "ditties of the titties" and grabs Belle's character by…well, you know!
Raunchy Little Musical is an unforgettable, 90-minute musical, filled with laughter and touching reminders of the ongoing struggle of women and men to find both love and sex…and a good laugh. And in Belle's words: "If I embarrass you…tell your friends!"
