A Night In The Madhouse

meetjoefrancis.com - A Night In The MadhouseJoe recently took in a night of wild entertainment courtesy of friend Jeff Beacher at a revolutionary Vaudeville-inspired theater in Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel called, appropriately, Beacher’s Madhouse. The show has been drawing celebrities and the power elite with its signature mix of Dancing Oompa Loompas, sultry singers, live monkeys and goats, a Mini Lady Gaga, beautiful burlesque dancers, live bands and DJs, Giant Bunny Rabbits, Pink Gorillas and thousands of variety acts. Joe’s friendship with Beacher began with an infamous incident in 2004 during which Beacher stripped down to his Speedo and plunged into a Vegas casino’s 10-foot-deep aquarium to promote his show. Joe, who happened to be passing by, stopped to watch the spectacle when clueless and overzealous hotel security guards assumed he was involved and tried to take him into custody. Beacher appeared on local TV stations to publicly vouch for Joe’s innocence and they’ve been friends since. “Joe has been coming to Beacher’s Madhouse since the very beginning,” says Beacher with a smile. “We’ve been friends ever since he saw me in that Speedo!” View News Report of the Vegas Incident here.
