A tassel-twirling tribute to the Dark Knight's friends and foes.
EPIC WIN Burlesque strives to be the nerdiest burlesque show in town, having produced sexy and geeky tributes to electronic interactive entertainments ("Video Game Vixens") and Saturday morning animation ("CARTOONS!") since forming in late 2009.
As February is the month of Valentine's Day, the four-eyed foxes of EW will continue to shamelessly celebrate nerdy delights by writing a love letter. To whom, you ask? To Batman. Yes, *that* Batman, an iconic character whose pop culture presence has spanned comic books, movies, television, cartoons and even video games. This month the EPIC WIN crew expands the Dark Knight's reach by introducing Batman to...the world of burlesque!
Dark, brooding vaudevillian hero Nelson Lugo and pale, maniacal nerdcore rapper SCHAFFER THE DARKLORD host a tour through Gotham City's underbelly. The shadiest nemeses from Batman's rogues gallery receive revealing interpretations from the likes of NYC burlesque superstars BONNIE VOY'AGE, LEFTY LUCY, MISS MARY CYN, BB HEART, VICTORIA PRIVATES and MAGDALENA FOX! Plus a very special appearance from the legendary NASTY CANASTA!
18 and over.
