Best Badass Burlesque, August 2012
Our city is home to some of the biggest and boldest burlesque shows in the world. Though Devil's Playground is known for its Star Wars- and comic book-themed acts, the bawdiness of the babes and the subversive brilliance of the skits set the Victory Variety Hour apart. On the second and fourth Saturday of the month at Skinny's Lounge, Penny Starr Jr. and her troupe of teasers command the stage with a skin-baring bump and grind, thematic costumes, and wacky props that dare to push boundaries. Expect vaudeville at its vampiest and most voracious.
