Selene Luna's Dog And Pony Show

Selene Luna brings her Los Angeles-based "Dog and Pony Show" to Las Vegas this weekend. As a standup comedian, Luna has generated comic material around her size (she's just three and a half feet high). She's worked with comedian Margaret Cho, she's done movies and at least one very trippy music video.

We talk with Selene Luna about her evolution as a performing artist, why she loves doing burlesque, and some of the reasons why the term "midget" is so darn offensive.
