In an evening of spectacle, outlandish costumed characters and burlesque ring girls, experience seven rounds of flim-flam fisticuffs with ringside commentary by “Elvis” and Kittie Glitter. Infused with sexy, subversive, and surreal content, Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club is a theatrical production that has proudly become the most bizarre way to celebrate the King of Rock ‘n Roll’s Birthday. The 2016 fight card is a closely held secret (Fight Club has rules!) and features all new combatants. Each will be competing to take home the champion belt for the first time! To get a sense of what one might expect to see happen at fight club, past match-ups include Bridezilla vs. Godzilla, The Dollar vs. Euro, Sloth (animal) vs. Sloth (Goonies), “Diane Rehm” vs. “Stephen Hawking,” and a Douche (dude) vs. a Douche (bag; a literal douche bag). Writers work on the characters and content nearly up to show time to ensure relevance and irreverence. Keeping the crowd “all shook up” between bouts, will be Elvis-themed burlesque numbers from Candy Del Rio and Nona Narcisse and contests like the annual Quaalude Toss and Elvis Trivia. The punch-drunk-logic behind Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club starts with the toilet of Graceland, Commodious, mishearing his King’s dying wish. Elvis probably said he wanted a night club, but Commodious believes he wanted a Fight Club. So, with the limited resources of a toilet, he set out to celebrate The King’s birthday, not with party hats and cake, but with back alley fisticuffs and hot tah-tahs.
