About Ghetto Girl Blue

The Biography of Jessica Holter

TELEVISION

Jessica Holter, also known as Ghetto Girl Blue, is a gifted writer and visual artist and an anointed public speaker. She is most famous for creating The Punany Poets in 1995 when rapper Eazy-E died of AIDS complications in anticipation of a rapid spread among disenfranchised Black/African American women. Her television debut on HBO's Real Sex 24 & 26 launched the controversial theater company into popularity in the year 2000. Holter appeared on BET's "Life Track" and "Tonight with Ed Gordon." Holter's artistic twist on the taboo, was warmly welcomed by producer's at Playboy TV who featured her live on "Nightcalls 411" with adult film stars Tera Patrick and Crystal Knight. It wasn't easy to make Lexington Steel blush, but Holter managed it with a live performance of "Pussy Willow" Listeners of Playboy Radio have enjoyed The Punany Poets in musical rotation since 2005.

Holter's television appearances set the tone and pace for a live performance and publishing career that spans 20 years. Often imitated, never duplicated, Jessica Holter is unique among American artists, using passion to combat pain, sexual respect to fight sexual abuse, and honesty and the promotion of monogamy to rip the stigma from AIDS.

THEATER

On stage, donned in fishnets, a Stetson and a stethoscope, Holter breaths life into a character called The Head Doctor, who conducts a cast of Punany Players in a circus of romantic antics for an audience of couples, singles and groups of loyal fans. From "Love Confessions" to "Lap Dances"  to "Public Displays of Affection" the red-headed ringmaster ads spark to relationships while educating and entertaining. Holter has been known to welcome special guests to her traveling productions including comedians Sheryl Underwood & Luenell, actress Chrystale Wilson (Player's Club), adult film stars Vanessa Blue and Sinnamon Love, singer/actress LaToya London, actor Max Julien (The Mack) and Dwayne Wiggins (Tony Toni Tone'), who is also one of the music producers of The Punany Poets sensual soundtrack. Holter's theater program has been compared to Augusto Boal's Theater of the Oppressed for is bold means of promoting social and sexual change. Today The Punany Poets is a strong brand and a Theater company dedicated to edutainment through hard-core theatrical presentations surrounding issues of sexuality as it pertains to economics, religion, politics, community mores, self-esteem and health.

ART

Jessica Holter's visual art is also a noteworthy testament to the artists career. Much of abstract artwork is inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe with seductive and suggestive folds of color and shading, while other works are political nods to the hippy lifestyle of her mother and the Black Panthress image of the 70's era where she spent her youth in Oakland, California.  Holter shares her visual art online here at FineArtAmerica.com. Her work is available in several mediums, including print, canvass print, framed print, acrylic print, metal print and greeting cards. Selected imaged have also been assigned to T-Shirts and Novelties which are available at TickleMeBlue.com.
