Shannan Calcutt as Izzy in ZUMANITY. Shannan was featured in Las Vegas Weekly (July 24 - 30, 2008). Not bad for 20 weeks pregnant! Expect to see Shannan back on stage in ZUMANITY in the new year.

Calcutt has run away to join the circus, and she's done it Izzy-style, starring in ZUMANITY the provocative cabaret Cirque du Soleil sensation! Now audiences can see Calcutt nightly on the Vegas Strip, attempting to sell her very own do-it-yourself breast implants! "The Premise, Ziploc bags filled with scotch as an alternative to breast implants, is sheer genius." (Las Vegas Magazine, 07.01.07) Izzy is joined by her husband, Dick, Cirque veteran Nicky Dewhurst, and together they are Zumanity's Resident Sex Experts. Dick and Izzy give demos of various sex toys and show the benefits of 'Express Dating' with two willing audience members. Later on, Brazil's acclaimed Botero Sisters and Izzy play a trick on Dick in 'Pom Poms', a lively number where the Clowns are most focused on covering their privates.

Since joining ZUMANITY in 2005, Calcutt has performed for over a million spectators, including the likes of Sting, Olivia Newton-John, Helen Mirren and Aerosmith, to name a few. "Thereís nudity, foul language, same-sex kissing, pretend S&M, a chaste orgy (complete with two audience volunteers) and two really terrific clowns: Shannan Calcutt and Nicky Dewhurst as a freewheeling couple who do funny things with sex toys, bananas and audience members. Calcutt also does a solo bit involving her bare chest, two plastic bags and a bottle of scotch. I canít really tell you more, but itís hilarious, and sheís a treasure." (Theatre Dogs, 06.26.07)
