"We are thrilled to have someone as talented as Joey joining our show this summer – he's a true triple-threat," says Kevin Denberg, Managing Partner of Chippendales. "With the combination of our award-winning show and the forthcoming 'Magic Mike' film starring Channing Tatum, the male revue is making its way back into the mainstream and we expect the addition of Joey to drive even more excitement to the industry."

On May 31st the show will mark another Las Vegas milestone - its 4,000th performance at the Rio.
