The year was 2018.
Jim and Delilah were enjoying a lengthy happy hour at the Bier Baron Tavern in Washington, DC and bullshitting about nothing in particular.
Then, it came to them. They created a brunch show, dedicated to the full spectrum of variety entertainment, and focused on creating a few hours where attendees could relax, laugh, and forget about *gestures vaguely* all that other stuff going on.
They would call it... Yolks on You! Now in its fifth year, Yolks on You! continues to draw a wide audience of people looking for joyful, inclusive, feel-good live entertainment.
Beyond Yolks on You, our production company DMVariety focuses on creating modern vaudeville experiences for the DMV, whether through Yolks on You! or another, equally ridiculous offering.
Who are Jim and Delilah, anyway?
The Brazilian Bombshell
Delilah Dentata is a multiple-award-winning DC-based burlesque and variety performer, host, and producer. She's got sass! She's got sensuality! She's got a shitload of weird facial expressions with which to unnerve you!
Her style is best described as "Sexy? I guess?" She is truly an icon.
Delilah has delighted audiences all over the East Coast, mid-Atlantic, and Midwest with her strangely sexy burlesque numbers and penetrating eye contact that lasts just a touch too long. She has performed in Astro Pop Events’ Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club, as well as with TBD Immersive, an immersive theater experience in Washington, DC, as well as Otakon, Super Art Fight, Dr. Sketchy's, and Naked Girls Reading.
Circus Clown Gone Horribly Wrong
Jim Dandy got his performance debut in Madison Square Garden with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as their beloved punk rock clown. Sporting bondage pants, a leather jacket, and a trademark green spiked wig, he performed as a clown for five years. In addition to his antics in the ring, Jim could be seen on various news channels, commercials, a video game, and newspapers.
During that time, his performance style was described as "oblique", "zany", and "would make Sid Vicious die a second death."
Since then he's brought his unique blend of vaudevillian punk rock charm to his ancestral homeland of Washington, DC where, in addition to being one-half of DMVariety, he appears in Elvis' Birthday Fight Club, American The Game Show: Fuck Yeah!, Otakon, Anime USA, Festival of Doom, ABSFest, and much more!
