Hosted by comedian Thea Vidal at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans on August 25th, the “ED’s” are the only national awards show for the multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industry
September 2nd 2015, Clearwater, FL—In one of America’s most historical cities, on the biggest stage in the industry and in front of a capacity crowd, the best of the adult nightclub industry were honored at the 18th Annual ED’s Adult Nightclub and Exotic Dancer Awards Show. As the glitter settled, famed “bad girl of burlesque” Roxi D’Lite danced away as ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year, Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami Gardens was awarded Overall Gentlemen’s Club of the Year, and Spearmint Rhino was bestowed with the coveted Club Chain of the Year. This year’s show was held at the Civic Theater in downtown New Orleans on August 25th and hosted by Thea Vidale. Best known for her primetime ABC show “Thea,” as well as “Last Comic Standing” Vidale is a 30-year comedy veteran whose show can be as clean or as dirty as the audience calls for—and the crowd loved every minute of her raunchy repertoire.
"Ever the risk, ever the reward. Great job by the ED Publication's Crew! Looking forward to August."

"New Orleans is always exciting and it's heritage as the original 'sin city' goes back centuries. The change should be well received."
"As one of the few people who has attended every Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO, I have had the rare privilege of seeing the event grow and, even more importantly, seeing the event become one of the most critical factors in protecting and shaping the future of the adult nightclub industry.“
“As always it was great to be part of the Expo. Had more fun doing it this year than ever; great subject and a fantastic audience.”
“Great EXPO this year. I really like the new format (of staff training seminars) and thought the Keynote (by Tim Kirkland) was great.”
