Pearl Pickpocket the entertainer

Description

"This chick makes even Wilson flip. Picpocket Pearl is no ordinary entertainer either; she believe it or not, is a he, and Flip Wilson has been taught a trick or two int he art of impersonating others by this cutie. That sexy, manly look has wowed many audiences throughout America and the Bahamas. Pearl was among the featured artistes on stage for the recent grand opening of the new Banana Boat Night Club, downtown Montego Bay. The former Coral Theatre has been transformed into a real show place, offering comfortable accommodation to over 600 patrons. Proprietor Norris Barnes spent about quarter million dollars to establish what he justifiably regards as a club of class. Also on stage were top Trinidadian entertainers, steel drummer, Cabot Paul; fire limbo dancer, Randolph Charles and His Carnival Cabaret Dancers and local artistes, backed by Dougie Chin and the banana Boat All Stars Band."
