Christina Aguchi crowned EXOTIC DANCER’s 2011 Overall Entertainer of the Year, while Delilah’s Gentlemen’s Club in Philadelphia takes Overall Club of the Year honors The 14th Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show (the ED’s Awards) was held on Tuesday, August 23, at The Mirage in Las Vegas, during the 19th Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO

  Exotic Dancer (ED) Publications, producers of the ED Club Bulletin magazine, the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO and the Annual Adult Nightclub & Exotic Dancer Awards Show, is pleased to announce the 2011 ED’s Awards Show winners. The 14th Annual Awards Show & Reception—“A Black & White Bash”—was hosted by popular comedian Nick Di Paolo and was  held inside the Grand Ballroom at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Tuesday, August 23rd.  The ED's Awards Show is held each year during the Annual Gentlemen's Club Owners EXPO.

 The evening’s biggest awards went to Christina Aguchi, who was crowned ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year; Delilah’s Gentlemen’s Club in Philadelphia, who took home the Overall Club of the Year Award; Rick’s Cabaret, which garnered the prestigious Club Chain of the Year Award; and longtime club executives Randy Beasley and Duke Dearing, who were inducted into the EXOTIC DANCER Hall of Fame.

 “As the only national awards show for the multi-billion-dollar adult nightclub industry, it is a pleasure for us to continually honor the best adult nightclubs and feature entertainers from across the country,” says ED’s Publisher, Don Waitt.  “Our Awards Show guests really embraced our ‘Black & White Bash’ theme, and our host and comedian Nick Di Paolo certainly didn’t disappoint!”

 In addition to Di Paolo’s presence, there were also several special guests at the 2011 ED’s Awards Show. National recording artist Jean Morisson joined the show’s “house” band, Vegas legends The Crashers, as she sang a rocking version of Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know,” while Grammy-winning guitarist Vernon Reid of Living Colour joined the band as they tore through the Jimi Hendrix classic, “Foxy Lady.”

 “Ronnie the Limo Driver” of Howard Stern Show fame, who has become a regular at the ED’s Awards Show and Annual EXPO, fired the capacity crowd up as an awards show special guest presenter.   Other guest presenters included the gorgeous adult film starlets Nikki Benz, Alexis Texas, Teagan Presley and Devon Lee, along with award-winning feature entertainer Jade Simone St. Clair.

 In addition to the awards typically presented each year, for the first time ever, the 2011 ED’s Awards Show celebrated the “small” club with the Small Club of the Year Awards (clubs under 5,000 square feet). “With so many great, multi-million-dollar clubs in this industry, it becomes harder and harder for the smaller clubs to stand out in the crowd,” says Waitt. “That’s why we felt that it was time we honor those clubs who, despite their smaller size, are no less successful or award-worthy.”

 The one new entertainer-related award for 2011 was the Miss Award. Each feature entertainer who has been featured as Miss of the month (which began in October 2010) was eligible to win.

 Award nominations were accepted online at for a two-week period in June/July. Based primarily on these votes, as well as input from the ED staff, these award nominees appeared on the Final Awards Ballot.
