Mr. Magic Mike
Dallas (to club audience): "Will you welcome to the stage, the one, the only... Mr. Magic Mike!"
Magic Mike is the star attraction at Club Xquisite. He's a veteran stripper and he definitely knows how to work a crowd with his dance moves and gyrations. As a result, he brings in major cash for himself and for the club.

The Kid: "Hey Mike? I think we should be best friends."
Mike (laughing): "Okay."
The Kid is much younger than Mike, and he's just starting out as a stripper -- enjoying the crazy lifestyle and, no doubt, all the trappings that come with the job. Mike does his best to show him the ropes, and in the process, gains a new buddy.
