After sold-out tour of her popular self-help parody musical 7 Habits of Highly Successful Mistresses in Dublin, Ireland, New York and at the Capital Fringe Festival in Washington D.C., comedian Lisa Faith Phillips was sued for trademark infringement and dilution of trademark by the FranklinCovey Corporation, which had trademarked 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Stunned and suddenly unemployed, Lisa decided she should go to work for the Obama administration and help her country but then realized she could never pass the vetting. Her answer is her new show the All-Nude College-Girl Revue, or why I can't pass the vetting at Cornelia Street Cafe Downstairs on Monday, July 13, 2009. Drawing on her colorful past, Lisa takes the audience on an hilarious journey. From growing up in a test site for cable telelvision, through her jobs as a stripping, Penthouse phone sex, jail and lawsuits, she's outrageous, poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. It all adds up to an evening of sophisticated, fun entertainment.

How to Be a Bad Girl

Synopsis:
How to Be a Bad Girl: Through the character of Dr. Faith, accompanied by the gifted Mistress Ethel (Ellen Mandel) on piano, Lisa gives the "411 on romance, love and security in this entertaining off-the-wall performance" (Time-Out New York). Updating with the latest current events and highlighting the 7 secrets of how to be a bad girl with a riding crop, maracas and witty original songs, such as "How To Be A Bad Girl" and "the Fellatio Tango", this "outrageously funny" (Newyorkcool.com) seminar "is fun for wives, for husbands, for everybody" (Pagina 12). Drawing on her colorful experiences, working as a stripper to pay her way through graduate school at the London School of Economics, and her background in stand-up comedy and music, Lisa weaves topical humor and song into a clever, thought-provoking and ultimately touching show. Part comedy, part cabaret, part two-woman theater piece, it all adds up to an evening of sophisticated, fun entertainment.
