Miss Cotton has also been in the studio lots, working on her first album which will be released in 2002. She has changed and opened many minds from all over the globe and often visits her home planet for inspiration on how to improve her look make beautiful things, make people happy and save the planet from all the injustices. Mark Kenneth Woods, originally from cosmo Montreal, this French supa cutie has traveled the Globe in search of knowledge and illumination. Arriving in Vancouver in the early 90s, Mark attended the Vancouver Film School before heading East for his Bachelor's degree. Specializing in film and cultural studies at the University of Toronto, he later moved on to complete a Master's degree at York University in the same fields. Adding a touch of Venus glamour, Mark worked closely with the House to create his Master's thesis on film genre, queer theory and camp aesthetics.

I saw some clips on youtube and thought they were funny so I ordered the DVD and it's FABulous! It's mostly sketches but also has some interviews and guests and is apparently the world's first all gay sketch comedy show. It's like all gay SNL but actually funny. I can't get enough right now and can't wait for season 2. My favorite characters are pimp and ho, James Bond like superhero duo who save the world from evil heteros like Doctor Normal in a few episodes, the sexy Latino queer eye guy is really funny and the home shopping drag queens. They are so fabulous. The boys in the cast are pretty cute too but I LOVE Ms. Cotton.

I was a little hesitent to purchase The House of Venus Show as I had never heard of the cast... but I am a fan of Deee-Lite and Amanda Lepore and have seen Stink Mitt perform in Germany with Peaches... First of all I can't believe these wacky kids are from Canada and are really funny. I like the fact that is truly is a variety show with very well done ( a little budget which I find charming!) sketch comedy not to mention the underground edge with all their drag queen and pop star interviews. It's odviously an independant venture ( Which is very, very refreshing with all the crap out there) and worth every penny! I can't wait for season 2 and hope for a season 3! I really like that the cast is attractive yet don't seem to take themselves too seriously as they can be very homely in certain skits like the Tammy Faye one and the TV sales ladies- Deb and Sisi. The Miss Cotton phone sex commercial is genius! Pimp and Ho are campy and fun. I love the Wiggle Fashion stuff.

I'm just being Honest here..... P-lease don't waste your time & $$$$ , I've seen their acts, not Bad 10 Years ago but now they're like washed out Tie-died! Oh Ya talk about HUGE Self absor-bent Alter-EGOS!!! It's like being forced into Drag Nite-mare, imagine your glue-ons stuck to your A__! Nothing against them cause I LOVE to support Fabulous Talents of QUALITY not 'Tiring, Bitter, Clampy Oh Me Me Me & More about Me' Torch Dimming Drag Divas! I watched their Show on T.V. , I tried atleast & they even made it looked Low Budget without efforts. (Bad Camp & Bad Wigs!)
& as for Dj Dick-doo, since I've partied around the Globe, his Music's still after all these years - doo doo... Contrived & Flat Out zzzzzzzzzzz!
'Big Fish in a small pond!'
