Gorgeous adult star and founder of BurningAngel Entertainment, Joanna Angel, will cut the ribbon to open the 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, January 20, 2011 in the front of The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Joanna Angel is one of the biggest names in the adult industry, and we are delighted to have her involved with opening of what promises to be one of the most memorable AVN Adult Entertainment Expos in history," says Theo Sap, Chief Executive Officer for AVN.

Pushing the envelope and breaking new ground, Joanna Angel is the founder of the BurningAngel Empire, a refreshingly unique web cocktail of sex, rock n' roll and pop culture. Its unmatchable edge has claimed a burgeoning bi-coastal community both in and out of cyberspace. This AVN Award Winner has been featured on Fox News, Playboy TV, Fuse TV, KROQ Radio, SIRIUS Radio, and on the series premier of TLCs LA Ink; her company has appeared in The New York Times, Newsweek, The Village Voice, The New York Press, Esquire UK, and Penthouse, among others. Heeb Magazine featured Joanna as their cover girl, naming her one of the "Top 100 Up-and-Coming Jews," and in 2006 The New York Post featured her as one of the "Top 25 Sexiest New Yorkers."
