Play Something Dancy
The Tragic Tales of a Strip Club DJ
by Dee Simon
Los Angeles-based comedian, radio DJ, and the host of the Sick and Wrong Podcast, Dee Simon has written a collection of hysterical and gut-wrenching personal essays about his experience as a strip club DJ in San Francisco in the early 2000s. Most of the stories in the book concern sex, drugs, venereal disease and diarrhea or a combination thereof. Therefore, if you lack a sense of humor or are easily offended, you should probably put this one down. Having the “wet dream” job of most adolescents, Simon offers a biting, realistic, and hilarious depiction of what goes on “behind-the-black velvet curtains” at a strip club from the perspective of the guy upstairs with the cheesy voice spinning the Aerosmith songs. It’s rare to hear such a candid voice about this industry from someone other than a stripper or a club owner.
