‘Stripper: Natasha Kizmet’ is a broad comedy, shot in a mocumentary style, that follows a naive, strikingly beautiful girl from Uzbekistan, who comes to America seeking fame and fortune as the producer and star of a belly dancing concert tour. Instead of finding her golden ticket to Hollywood stardom, she takes a comedic detour through a world inhabited by sleazy photographers, malevolent strip-club owners and pimps, a sex-addicted preacher, and an unexpected side-trip to a porn convention, which lands her in the cloying clutches of adult entertainment personalities, including Tony Batman (www.TonyBatman.com) and Ron Jeremy.
Director and screen writer, Michael Drumm co-produced the mocumentary with Kizmet, who also shares writing credits. ‘Stripper: Natasha Kizmet’ has achieved cult movie status, since its release in 2009. The title garnered Kismet the “Silver Screen Best Actress Award” from The Nevada Film Festival. The movie was also featured in the 2010 Saint Petersburg Nomadic Tendencies Film Festival and the Hollywood Mock Film Fest in 2011.
The film’s long list of co-stars and featured characters include Batman, Carlo Galliano, Rod Halmshaw, Jeremy, Kimberly Kole and Jennifer Leahy, among many other adult performer cameos.
Batman recalls, “Michael Drumm spotted Natasha on the floor with me at the 2009 Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. We’d struck up a friendship at one of the hotel parties, after she congratulated me on my Screaming O Road Show emcee work, which landed me on Oxygen’s ‘Bad Girls Club’. The following day, Natasha came along with me while I was doing interviews with the models and porn stars at the show, for my A! Entertainment broadcast. She was interested in doing some interviews, so I handed her the microphone. Producer Michael Drumm saw something special in her improvisational skills while she was doing those interviews and asked, ‘Why don’t we make a movie about you?’ He and Natasha wrote a part in the movie for me, because we played off each other so well.”
Amazon.com reviewer, Ben Arispe writes, “This was a great movie. I enjoyed Natasha being so innocent and funny! Natasha narrates the entire movie, and for those of you who like beautiful women with foreign accents, this is a definite plus! Natasha comes across as very personable and sweet, and for those funny parts in the movie she’s a very good sport!”
