Hot comedian Jessimae Peluso

JessiMae Pelusoto host 2018 ED’s Awards Show in Las Vegas!

Presented by Capital Hero, the ED’s Awards Show will be held at The Joint Theater inside the Hard Rock Casino on Tuesday, August 21

It’s the night the entire multi-billion-dollar gentlemen’s club industry waits for, the night where their industry is honored with its only national awards show. The 2018 Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show—the ED’s Awards—will grace the stage of The Joint Theater at the Hard Rock Vegas on Tuesday, August 21, during the 26th Annual Gentlemen’s Club EXPO. The Show is presented by Capital Hero and will be hosted by hot comedian Jessimae Peluso.

“She may be easy on the eyes, but that’s where the ‘gentle’ side of Jessimae Peluso ends,” says ED Publications’ Associate Publisher and ED’s Awards Show co-producer Dave Manack. “When we decided to bring a comedian back to host the Awards Show, we knew it had to be someone different than any host we’ve had before, and that’s exactly what Awards Show guests will witness with Jessimae!”

The ED’s Awards Show, presented by Capital Hero, honors the best-of-the-best in the adult nightclub and feature entertainer industries, with awards presented to clubs in both regional and national categories, including the prestigious Overall Gentlemen’s Club of the Year Award. The three ED’s “Overall Entertainer of the Year” nominees will perform during the show, while the winner of this award is revealed as the final award of the evening.  

The clubs, entertainers and club staff who will make the Final ED’s Awards Ballot will be determined in part by the Pre-Nominations Ballot, which is set to launch on May 21st. Pre-nominations will be accepted then at www.theEDawards.com.

More on Jessimae Peluso: The LA-based comedian gained mass popularity as the outspoken cast member on MTV’s “Girl Code,” then went on to be featured on TBS’ “Deal With It,” NBC’s “Last Call With Carson Daly,” E!’s “Chelsea Lately” and Tru TV’s “Comedy Knockout.” Jessimae can be heard weekly on her Sharp Tongue podcast available on all major platforms, and she was featured in the New York Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, North Carolina Comedy & Arts Festival, Women in Comedy Festival and Kevin Hart’s LOL Live Network.

The 2018 ED's Awards Show will be held Tuesday, August 21, from 9-11 pm at The Joint Theater inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. A pre-show reception will be held from 8-9 pm, and the Official Awards Show After-Part will be held at Centerfolds Cabaret, directly across the street from the Hard Rock. Tickets are $69 (before June 15; $89 after) and can be purchased online here [ad link] or by calling (727) 726-3592.
