Technology isn't always the best provider of mind-blowing visual spectacle: sure, Avatar had three dimensions, but not even one of them contained chicken suit-clad wrestlers suplexing Lilliputian stuntmen. Transporting you to an awesomely bizarre 4th dimension that does: Lucha VaVoom
Lucha, the over-the-top (rope), 2-hour exhibition of spandex-heavy Mexican wrestlers both large and small and titillatingly tasseled burlesque dancers is finally hitting the mid-Atlantic after bone-crushing shows in LA inspired a seven-city tour and earned mention on NPR's "Morning Edition", meaning it must have been a slow news day for archaeological finds in rural Western Turkey. Things get grapple-y with a 30-strong stable of masked luchadores, which includes the tag-teaming Los Calaveras, a Day of the Dead-inspired duo with smash-ready flamenco guitars, Chocolate Caliente (a purple-draped, afro-picking champion), the pint-sized Lil' Chicken, whose feathery costume doesn't hide his adorable lil' muscles, and Shamu Jr., a whale-themed/-sized heavyweight whose performance would get two thumbs up from his trainer, if they hadn't both been lost while feeding him mackerel in the dressing room. Sweat-filled matches alternate with "handpicked burlesque acts from around the world", including the pogo-sticking Roky Roulette, the Ursula-haired, snake-bikini wearing Cherchez La Femme, and current Miss Viva La Vegas crown holder, "Queen of the Tassel-Twirl" talent Lucy Fur, who isn't sure whether or not her coat is murder, but is happy to lose it for you regardless
All of the action is MC'd by a "rotating cadre of comedians" led by funnyman Blaine Capatch, who previously yucked it up on Mind of Mencia -- programming from an outrageous 5th dimension, where TV execs think Carlos Mencia is talented.
