Exotic Erotic Ball’s Bulging Talent Line-up Gets Smaller; Eric The Midget Joins Show
This press release is online at:


San Francisco, CA (September 23, 2008) – He’s known on The Howard Stern Show by a multitude of monikers, including Eric the Astronaut, Eric the Actor, Eric the American Idol Expert, and even though he dislikes it, Eric the Midget.  Whichever Eric you prefer, you’ll find him at Perry Mann’s 29th Annual Exotic Erotic Ball &Expo, October 24 and 25, at San Francisco’s Treasure Island. Eric will be meeting and greeting fans, posing for photos, and signing autographs. 

He’ll also be joining a returning Danny Bonaduce, the multitalented MySpace vixen Bobbi Billard, and Asian supermodel Akira Lane as judges for the Ball’s legendary costume contests, whose prizes now total $20,000. 

Perry Mann states: “Eric the Midget may be short in physical stature, but he’s big on entertainment value.  His recent appearance at our Las Vegas Strippers and Hustlers Ball made headlines around the world, as he joined up with Snake Babe, and together they manhandled a ten-foot python.  Eric’s effusive personality is legendary, and he is a welcome addition to this year’s Ball.”

Through its unique combination of mixing live mainstream musical, burlesque, and circus performances with political irreverence, humorous hi-jinks, and the bizarre, the Exotic Erotic Ball has been called “The World’s #1 Wildest and Sexiest Party” by E! Entertainment TV, the “#1 Adult Festival in the World,” by, and one of the “69 Sexiest Things to Do Before You Die,” by Playboy TV.  The Ball has delighted and regaled over half a million attendees over its long and highly acclaimed history and over 30,000 are expected in 2008 as the event takes over a beautiful waterside site at Treasure Island.

Part Mardi Gras, costume party, burlesque show, and rock concert, the Ball is a hybrid event unlike any other.  The entertainment is non-stop, of a limitless variety, and traverses across 5 stages – music, electronic, burlesque, circus, and fetish.  “The Expo” features over 100 carefully chosen exhibits showcasing the latest in exotic fashion, adult products, games, websites, and novelties, plus panel discussions on First Amendment rights, fashion shows, a spiritual oasis with psychics and massage, erotic poetry, a classic cinema, body painting and a human petting zoo.  But, it’s the costumes and outfits worn by the attendees - colorful, creative, and captivating – that make the show truly unrivaled. 

The two-day Expo opens Friday, October 24 from 2PM to 10PM, and Saturday, October 25, from Noon to 6PM.  The Ball opens October 25 from 8PM to 2AM.

Eric will appear at the Expo on October 24 from 5PM to 10PM, Saturday, October 25 from 2PM to 6PM, and again at the Ball.
