One of the most exciting event series of last year is back! The temporary Same Same Mardi Bar that opened up during the 2009 Mardi Gras and packed out every night returns bigger and longer in 2010.
The Same Same Mardi Bar will be open for two weeks at Nevermind around Mardi Gras time, starting on Wednesday February 24 and closing on Saturday March 6.
This time around, the return of the Mardi Bar is even more exciting with the announcement of two very special hosts for the two weeks of fun, adult entertainer Brent Corrigan and transsexual Amanda Lepore.
Brent Corrigan has squeezed more into his life than most 23 year-olds. He blazed into the porn world in underage controversy, and hasn’t stopped making headlines since then. From murder trials to countless adult awards, Brent’s story is as interesting as it is diverse. He’s currently running his own production company and forging a promising career in mainstream films appearing in Gus Van Sant’s Milk and a key role in Another Gay Sequel. Brent will be appearing at the Mardi Bar on Wednesday February 24 and Thursday February 25.
The second week of the Same Same Mardi Bar will be hosted by the number one transsexual in the world, Amanda Lepore. After her road-blocking Australian debut in November, Amanda is returning to the country so you can get to know her a little bit better.
The fashion and pop culture icon makes waves everywhere she goes, and it’s not hard to see why. With a style that’s copied all around the world, she wowed Sydney audiences with her performances last year, and will return to Nevermind on Wednesday March 3 and Thursday March 4 to make the 2010 Mardi Bar truly memorable.
The Same Same Mardi Bar takes over Nevermind on Oxford Street, Darlinghurst from Wednesday February 24. The full schedule of events will be announced closer to the launch, but one thing is certain – you’re not going to want to miss one night of this highly anticipated annual event series.
