ANGIE PONTANI ON FILM
Whatever happened to The World Famous Pontani Sisters? First, they admitted Helen wasn't a biological sister, then Tara Pontani went on an extended maternity leave being replaced by Shemp Pontani or whoever, and now Angie Pontani is doing one-woman shows.
One of the greatest concerts I ever attended was Los Straitjackets' Christmas Pagent with The World Famous Pontani Sisters. It was a match made in heaven, the '50's style music of Los Straitjackets with The World Famous Pontani Sisters bumping it oldstyle on stage.
Angie Pontani is still dancing and was recently crowned "The Reigning Queen of Burlesque, Miss Exotic World" in Las Vegas.
Check out the following YouTube clips of Angie in action. Angie recently spoke about the art of burlesque to TIME Magazine. Next is Hendrick's Tub, featuring Angie in a bathtub of champagne. The final clip is a tribute to the stag film, with the tune Brawl by Eddie Angel.
And don't forget, you can learn more about Angie Pontani on her website and also on The World Famous Pontani Sisters website as well.
