“Oh yessssss…” is rarely followed by “Ahaha!” In our culture, sexuality doesn’t rhyme often enough with humour. But artists of the Neo-Burlesque scene are attempting to remedy this by inventing a new genre of burlesque. It’s a burlesque where vaudeville and comedy meet the glamour of strip-tease. An absurd kind of strip-tease cultivating the art of ridicule and satire while staying very hot and sexy.
