Rob Paulsen won a Daytime Emmy in 1999 as "Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program" for Pinky and The Brain. With over 2,000 half-hours of animation to his credit, Paulsen's versatility shines in his starring roles as the voices of Yakko, Pinky, and Dr. Scratch 'n' Sniff in the Peabody and two-time Emmy Award-winning series "Animaniacs". Some of Paulsen's other well-known animated characters include Raphael in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," Arthur in "The Tick," the title role in "The Mask," and the title role in "Mighty Max".

Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is New York's ragtag army of art school delinquents. The troupe--which specializes in narrative burlesque, pop culture and literary adaptations, lowbrow comedy, audience competitions, cheesy disco covers, and self-indulgent '90s nostalgia--are not your average showgirls; they're rhinestones in the rough, anti-glamour guerilla grrrls prone to attack and entice.

Formerly known as Alpha Psi Ecdysia, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque was founded in 2008 as the nation's premier undergraduate burlesque troupe. While based on the campus of the State University of New York at New Paltz, Rhinestone Gorilla lived a double life as an educational institution and a professional producing entity. On the New Paltz campus, Rhinestone Gorilla dedicated itself to teaching burlesque history, the politics of neo-burlesque and the practice of burlesque performance; off-campus, Rhinestone Gorilla was the underage darling of the New York stripperformance art scene, getting naked on school nights at The Slipper Room, Rififi, Public Assembly, and Sugarland and in venues in LA, SF, Boston, and beyond. Though frequent subjects of controversy and police activity, Rhinestone Gorilla's students on the SUNY campus--who have inherited the name Alpha Psi Ecdysia--remain the only state-sponsored strippers in the nation.

"Wildly inventive, completely nuts, and charming through-and-through." -Flavorpill

"If it's true that the most erotic fantasies are forbidden, then Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque presents Good Idea/Bad Idea is the hottest show in town... These cerebral ladies, cast in the Lena Dunham mold of young, smart, sexy, nerdy, nerdy-sexy women show off their high culture cred and low culture spread  all in titillating, sparkly, see-through costumes..." - Burlesque Beat

"[Rhinestone Gorilla] is the future of burlesque." -San Francisco Burlesque Review
