From a press release:

Mills Entertainment will present the male revue “Chefs: The Sizzling Kitchen Showdown,” an “Iron Chef” meets “Magic Mike” interactive spectacular, at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, March 3 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $25 and $35, plus fees, go on sale this Friday, Jan. 12 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at the Kirby Center box office (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), online at, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale begins on Wednesday, Jan. 10 at 10 a.m.

Feast your eyes on “Chefs.” These hilarious (and delicious) hunks give you a peek behind the apron as they slice, dice, and spice things up in the kitchen through a series of escalating culinary challenges where the stakes are high – if they lose a challenge, they lose their shirt. Literally.

“Chefs” is a “hilarious and interactive spectacular” where you will vote for the winner and may even join the boiling hot chefs on-stage for uproarious cooking demonstrations. Outrageously bold and hysterically funny, “Chefs” is “too hot for TV,” making it the perfect night out.

Michelin-starred celebrity chef and world-renowned restaurateur Patrick Wilde is hosting a tournament for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to become a chef at his highly anticipated new restaurant, Eros, which will open next year at a secret location yet to be announced.

Chef Patrick is a stripper-turned-chef who used the money he made from three long years on the pole to build his culinary empire. He is offering other male strippers the opportunity to “get off the pole and into the pantry!”

“Chefs” competing in the tournament must prove their culinary skills to Chef Patrick through a series of escalating challenges that highlight their skill and dexterity around the kitchen. If a chef wins a challenge, he gets to choose the next mystery ingredient from Chef Patrick’s on-stage pantry and become one step closer to becoming a chef at Eros.

If a chef loses a challenge, he loses an article of clothing. The winner of the tournament will become a chef at Eros and the losers will go back to the pole.
