Eight things, without which burlesque as we know it would not exist:
Without the Book of Faces, how could we find gigs and tell everyone about our lives? (possible answer: go back to MySpace…)
Without money, how could we buy pretty things to throw on the floor and get stolen by drunk audience members?
Without music, how could we do all the ridiculous things we do on a stage, and still look cool?
Without an audience, who would clap and cheer even when we get stuck in our clothes and can’t get out?
5.Rude Body Parts
Without rude body parts, we would really be pushed for material. How would we end our acts?
Without fabric to wave about, look exciting or take off, what would we actually do in our acts? Burlesque strippers need clothes.
8.A Sense of Humour
Without a sense of humour, would any of us still be doing this?
