Like many others, Cheese who sings lounge-style versions of rock and rap songs is being affected by the poor economy.
Fans have less money to spend on concert tickets, CDs, and swag, but Cheese refuses to lose his empire.
The lounge lizard has been making cutbacks left and right, including less trips to the dry cleaners to wash his tiger striped tux he performs in.
Hes also changing his drinking habits.
Cheese laments, Im cutting back on mixers. I still drink booze before shows, but now its straight up. Theres not as much cranberry.
Besides personal sacrifices, Cheese is actively slanging merchandise on richardcheese.com such as womens panties with the slogan I Love Dick.
He also offers signed birthday cards, personal voicemail messages, and the chance for fans to have their names sung on his tracks.
Cheeses new CD, Viva La Vodka, is now available on his site. His next concert is January 31 in San Diego.
