This month The Varieties played host to Irish dance sensations The Lords of Strut, the amazing sleight of hand of Richard McDougall and the hilarious Noel Britten, but the night belonged to Merian Ganjou. This glamorous acrobat was a star of variety in the 50's and 60's, and she sat down with me to tell tales of the glory days of variety, partying in Vegas with Sammy Davis Jr, and having a bra strap pop live on The Ed Sullivan Show!
