Emcees

This year our evening entertainment and festivities are so explosive, we need TWO emcees!
Here is who will bring you the Sin!


Our first emcee, Loren Berthelsen grew up in a small farming community in the flat part of Nebraska and currently hails from Los Angeles, CA.  He has been active in the kink/leather/fetish community for almost 30 years and, along with his husband, Alex Lindsay, enjoys a diverse and kinky polyamorous, power-exchange family.

Loren is a past President of the AIDS Emergency Fund in San Francisco, past Chair of the Los Angeles Leather Coalition and also holds the title of SF Leather Daddy XIV and Mr Golden Leather 2009 as well as an ambassador title to the Imperial Court of San Francisco.

Loren is Editor in Chief for Leatherati.com; a People, News, and Events site he co-founded with Alex in 2009.  Loren is also a member of several fetish and fraternal organizations including Avatar Los Angeles, the SoCal Bondage Club, Threshold Society, and serves as the Communications Officer for the B&B Corps Los Angeles Division.

Loren is also an accomplished stand up comic and has appeared at The Comedy Store, The Ice House, Flappers, Ha Ha Comedy Cafe and the Laugh Factory.  His latest material on the Leather and Master/slave community has garnered accolades at events across the country.  In his free time Loren loves to cook for friends and enjoys great restaurants and wine.  He likes to ride his Triumph Sprint ST, loves traveling, great movies, books about food and everything about the web. 

He has two favorite quotes:  "Get your gear on...get your rocks off" and “You can’t fix crazy!”



And our second emcee, Ms. Tawdri Hipburn, has been entertaining millions the world over from musicals to stand-up comedy for decades. A native of Southern California, Tawdri grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, traveling often into the city as well as overseas visiting family & friends and exploring the entertainment industry worldwide. From childhood, musical theatre and the comedic arts became an instant calling for Tawdri.

Being brought up with humble beginnings, Tawdri chose to go to beauty school to further interests in the beauty industry, specific to theatrical & television make-up. Upon graduating from college, a star-studded career began. Hipburn took the stage performing as numerous famous characters such as Bette Midler, Mama Cass, Divine, and many, many more. With a strong emphasis on Blue Humor/Off-Color Humor, Tawdri's title "Everyone's Favorite Drag Queen" was born. Many have said that shows get old when you can memorize every line... However Ms. Hipburn has always had the gift of improvisation and dry humor. No two shows are ever the same, and every guest is always on the edge of their seat.
