Tiny stag do stripper earns £3k dancing for OAPs – but fears ‘moral police’ axe

A dwarf stripper who earns big bucks getting his kit off for grannies says it would be “absolutely outrageous” if his profession was axed by cancel culture.

Raking in up to £3,000 a week, entertainer Choon Tang, 29, is a regular fixture at stags, hens, weddings, corporate events and even the big screen – but fears for his future.

A former McDonald’s burger-flipper, the 4ft 6in bodybuilder has made appearances in Lord of the Rings and Ninja Warrior, but these days has used his short stature for a unique type of strip show.

The elf and Oompa Loompa performer now fears efforts to cancel entertainment featuring people with dwarfism, labelling some as “party pooping do-gooders”.

His words come off the back of bullfights featuring little people being banned by the Spanish Government.

Choon has mounted a staunch defence of his right to do the job he says he loves.

“Before entertainment work I worked in McDonald’s and a call centre, which I really didn’t enjoy," said Choon, who has amassed 18,000 Instagram followers.

“I do entertainment work now because I can make a decent salary doing what I love – performing, entertaining and making people laugh. I get to do all of this while being paid to just be myself.

“I work on hen and stag parties every weekend and the best part is the banter and creating a great experience for them before their big day.

“Sometimes it involves stripping for the hen parties which can be really fun and less intimidating for them, rather than getting a 6ft stripper.”

On one occasion, the north London-based bloke even stripped for a 90-year-old woman’s birthday party.

“I thought I was going to give the poor lady a heart attack. She was laughing so hard and absolutely loved it!”

But his skills don’t stop at there – he’s given motivational talks, appeared in BT adverts and even been featured on a celebrity boxing card.

“I would say the best part about this type of work is that it is so dynamic and diverse on the many types of events and people that we interact with,” he added.

“I never know what to expect when going to work so it makes me feel really alive all the time, plus it doesn’t hurt to get paid to do something you love.

“I’ve created best friends and amazing memories for people and children, such as elf visits and when people re-book and ask me to come to their wedding it definitely feels special.”

Fears have however been raised by leading stag and hen do outfitLast Night of Freedom, which has raised the alarm over the possibility of Choon Tang's niche falling victim to cancel culture.

The firm’s managing director, Matt Mavir, warned that recent unsuccessful efforts to ban strip clubs by politicians in Bristol and Edinburgh may be a sign of the way things are headed.

He worries the “moral police” and “cancel crusaders” could well have their eyes on Choon Tang’s spot, explaining: “Stags and hens are about unity, friendship and fun. We would never promote anything that wasn’t inclusive or was mean-spirited.

“Everybody involved in dwarf bookings consents, they are a bit of light-hearted fun while the entertainer can earn a lot of money for not a lot of work.

“Our concern is that, as we’ve seen with lap-dancing, the moral police may soon take it upon themselves to decide what it appropriate for 2023, and what isn’t.

“But ultimately, we believe that if everyone involved consents and nobody is harmed, who is anybody else to decide how a man or woman earns a living?”

These worries have been echoed by Choon, who expressed his concern over the action by the Spanish government.

He said: “In my opinion, the new Spanish laws prohibiting people with dwarfism from doing this kind of work are absolutely outrageous.

"I believe people should be allowed to do what they want, as long as both parties consent and no one is getting hurt in the process

“I understand the perspective that people think it could be derogatory towards individuals with dwarfism, but this is rarely ever the case.

"As we are almost always treated with respect and usually just hired for our outgoing and explosive personalities.”
