Biggest burlesque show in Britain? The claim is that the biggest burlesque extravaganza in the UK, the less than spectacularly named ‘An Evening of Burlesque’ will be back touring here in the autumn, having travelled the globe from Milan to Zurich and Verona to St Petersburg. This very classic burlesque show still bills itself as ‘the biggest’. We’re not entirely sure it is, having seen a couple of pretty big non-touring shows hit London in recent years, so if ‘An Evening of Burlesque’ has been superseded by a show with a bigger cast, please let us know and we’ll give that show a plug too!

burlesque festivalOh dear, the Australian Dental Association got into trouble! Some X-rated footage of strippers performing at their 2013 conference was used as a promo for the 2015 event and drew a lot, and I mean a lot, of criticism. The burlesque night was the final evening of the conference and was considered to be ‘raunchy’ according to the ADA Chief Executive who ordered removal of the material from the organisations YouTube channel.  The Congress took place in Melbourne - perhaps they should have gone to Vegas, because everybody knows that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!
