Kendra Wilkinson and Jai Rodriguez Extend Performances in Smash-Hit Comedy “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” through January 2, 2018
Meeting popular demand, Kendra Wilkinson and Jai Rodriguez have signed on to continue headlining The Strip’s newest smash-hit comedy, “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” at Paris Las Vegas through January 2, 2018. Hailed by Las Vegas Review-Journal as “a hilarious and wild show,” this laugh-out-loud production encourages its audience to put these insider tips into action during the performance, from massaging the pecs of the male model on stage all the way to practicing the perfect stroke on their own rolled-up programs. An unforgettably naughty night of sex, romance, and self-discovery, “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” is New York City’s longest-running Off-Broadway show and made its debut at Paris Las Vegas in May 2017.
“Being a part of ‘Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man’ has been life-changing,” said Wilkinson, whose starring role has been prominently featured on this season of WE tv’s hit series, “Kendra on Top.” “I love the thrill of performing in a live show like this, and one of my favorite things has been getting to meet so many fans night after night. So, now that I’m continuing through the end of the year, hop on a flight to Vegas and come say ‘Hello!’”
In the sex-affirmative, coming-of-age show, Wilkinson stars as Robyn, the bookish and demure host of a university authors forum. Featured author Dan Anderson, played by Rodriguez, brings Robyn out of her professorial shell by encouraging her and audience members to embrace their naughtiest instincts with the help of Stefan, her hunky stage assistant.
The 75-minute production combines comedy, charisma, and a lot of sass to create a memorable evening perfect for everyone from couples looking to spice up their routines to groups interested in a girls’ – or guys’ – night out. Performing seven shows a week in an intimate theater just off the casino floor, the highly interactive show draws upon audience participation to demonstrate many of the most outrageous and hilarious techniques featured.
“I’m thrilled to be spreading the ‘Sex Tips’ love through the new year,” said Rodriguez. “People walk into the show room not knowing what to expect and it’s incredible to give them their happy ending night after night. I’d say this is ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Girl’ but ‘Sex Tips’ is for everyone.”
A co-production of Adam Steck’s SPI Entertainment with Matt Murphy and Shawn Nightingale, “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” is an interactive engagement that takes the motto “practice makes perfect” to a whole new level. As the ultimate adults-only party, the show leaves audiences with intimate bedroom insight that they can take home as the ultimate Vegas souvenir.
“Kendra and Jai have an amazing chemistry that comes to life on stage nightly,” said Murphy. “No doubt we’re a hit because of their brilliant comedic instincts, and I’m thrilled that now audiences will get to see them in the show for the rest of the year.”
“I couldn’t be prouder of the show’s success in Las Vegas,” said Steck. “It’s the perfect night out, which the enthusiasm of the crowd makes clear night after night. Kendra and Jai are the perfect fit for a show like this and have made ‘Sex Tips’ Vegas’ must-see show.”
“Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” performs nightly (dark Wednesdays) at 7 p.m. with additional 11 p.m. shows Saturday nights.
