ROXI STARR in LIVE FROM THE CLOSET:
Her name is ROXI STARR …..She’s a famous cabaret singer that makes Liza Manelli look like
an amateur! Throughout Roxi’s 30 year career she has performed with all of the greats….Justin
Beiber, Ed Sheeran and most recently Bradley Cooper….and she has slept with all of them!
She’s written smash hits like Ballad of Billie Sue, Broken Dreams, One Thing and Mrs.
Somebody. She is known for one of her most famous lyrics, “Life’s a Bitch and Then You Die!”

Just Say Blow Me:
In the one-woman comedy “Just Say Blow Me”, Mele explores several characters who are
attending a self-help weekend seminar. The show examines various addicts who hate other
people that exercise self-control and ultimately come to the conclusion that “Just saying NO” is
not the answer. You can do anything as long as you do it in moderation!
