Master of Ceremonies:
A True Story of Love, Murder, Rollerskates and Chippendales
1985. Smack dab in the middle of the cash happy/coke crazy 80s, when it was raining men and girls just wanted to have fun, David Henry Sterry became the MC at Chippendales, when it was the hottest show in the city that never sleeps. Find out what it was like to be the ugliest man at Chippendale’s. Sterry’s first memoir, Chicken, is being made into a TV series by Showtime. He is also a book doctor who has helped dozens of first time authors get published; and the author of Putting Your Passion Into Print the definitive book on how to get published.
“‘Master of Ceremonies’” is a dizzying, tender story resplendent with seedy glamour, hilarious backstage madness, and unflinching honesty… maximum entertainment value… There are two underlying love stories, one between Sterry and a coworker, and one between Sterry and his craft..” -Katherine Litwin, Library Journal.
