Burlesque is in the air (and on the air) in Chicago

Our buddy in the bump and grind, Ray Koltys, was on Chicago Public Radio's Eight Forty-Eight yesterday discussing the current burlesque revival scene in Chicago. Michelle Baldwin, author of the new book Burlesque and the New Bump and Grind, was also interviewed. If you missed it, the story will be archived online at

Oh and...

This Saturday night, June 26th, the Belmont Burlesque Revue is back!

This month, we've got...

* Michelle "Toots" L'Amour - back in Chicago from the Miss Exotic World pagaent at the one and only Burlesque Hall of Fame. It's hot outside, gents, and a little bird told us she'll being keeping cool on Saturday night with lots and lots of water.

* The Amazing Tomas! - He eats lit cigarettes! He sticks Tic Tacs in his eye! He also performs amazing feats of magic!

* FuzzyCo's Himmerick & Gerdes - you've seen them do those crazy make-'em-ups as Bare. This Saturday they channel their comedic timing into vaudevillian brilliance.


* Our Bombshells Naughty Natanya and Ms. Pixy debut their new striptease duet "Mistress and Maid"


* Dirty jokes with Bombshell sweetheart, Legs O'Plenty

as always, hosted by Jack Midnight, our Man of the Hour
