Ever since I have been trootling all over the place, visiting the Tower of London (managed to lose my l’il pearl earring while visiting the Crown Jewels!) and sorting stuff in Über Stepford, so I do apologise that it has taken me a while to write this up.
Good news, though. Next show coming up soon!
It happened to be a sort of men’s night for me at the burlesque, LOL. Foo Foo had kindly secured me a seat near the stage, in order that I could take good notes for the purpose of my review. I was jolly pleased about that, however I was a little bit taken aback when I tootled along to it and found that – very unusually – it was a table full of men. As you know, the burlesque is predominantly attended by women so that was a nice surprise!
Naturally I put this embaras de masculinity to good use. Hmmmm? What are you thinking?!!! I mean, that since I got the women’s point of view on the burlesque last time, I went round on your behalves and asked the boyzzzz what they think of it. Sheeesh! I don’t know what you imagine I would get up to at a table full of men on a night out at the burlesque! (However much fun you thought it was, double it <snerk>.)

you can get a discount, take it!
It's already well worth the ticket.
It is as usual almost impossible to pick out individual acts cuz they were all FANTASTIC. I so much admired the skill with which the whole show was put together. They do not just go: “Oh, let’s call it Flying Down to Rio and we can wear carnival costumes.” The whole thing is so beautifully done that I am quite surprised the Brazilian Tourist Board are not down there booking the whole thing up instead of Jessie J for that upcoming football thing.

There seems to always be one number which has me rolling in my seat crying with laughter and this time round it was Amber Amour and Bonita Boudoir. The boyzzz were being well looked after that night! The clever Cardiff Burlesque had not forgotten that there is an upcoming football thing in Rio. Amber and Bonita came on most beautifully clad in the Brazilian kit which they proceeded to strip off in a way which Sepp Blatter would have thoroughly approved, until they were down to tasteful pasties made up with black and white glitter like little footballs covering their ... their tasty booby bits.

I guess that is what I love about the burlesque, and what the boyzzz were appreciating too. There is no cheesy one dimensional quick flash of the female sex on display as the object of ogling. Instead you have many aspects of feminine sexuality twirling like the facets of a disco ball: wit, elegance, silliness and the powerful huntress who jerks her feather-tipped uh ... beak at you (wink) - if you are really in luck.
Go go go! to the next show: A Night at the Museum.
