Hotsy Totsy Burlesque: Home


October 29th


R BAR, The venue we had booked for this show has just announced it is closed. Leaving us without a place to do our show. As soon as we find a new venue the info will be right here. In the meantime here is a description of what we have planned!

Joe The Shark and Cherry Pitz Present:

Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s tribute to The Master Of Modern Horror Steven King!



Handsome Brad is thrilled to have won “The Stephen King Scariest Story Ever Written Contest.” The prize is a writer’s residency at the isolated (and haunted) Overlook Hotel during the off-season, where Brad will be finishing his book and chewing on aspirin. Knowing that all work and no play makes Brad a dull boy, he has decided to throw a burlesque blow out party before the snows come, cutting him off from civilization. He has invited Cherry Pitz and the gals from the Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women to entertain you, the last guests of the season.

Hosted by Handsome Brad & Cherry Pitz. With acts by Apathy Angel, Dot Mitzvah, Fem Appeal, Little Motown, Rosie Cheeks & Tiger Bay. Ivory Foxx will be warming you up with her incredible go-go skills and Miranda Raven will be keeping the blood off the stage – and there will be blood…

Following on the footsteps of Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s successful The Big Lebowski, Mad Men, Doctor Who and Star Wars 1978 Holiday Special tribute shows, Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark present a burlesque tribute to the master of modern horror Steven King. He has written over 60 books and 200 short stories and his filled our souls with so much fear, that we figured who better to tribute for a Halloween themed burlesque show. Hotsy Totsy Burlesque is New York’s only episodic, monthly burlesque show featuring a different script each month and a rotating cast. Hotsy Totsy is a high camp soap opera featuring some of the best burlesque talent New York has to offer.

Once a month you are invited to the basement of The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women. The residents of the home need money to keep their hotel open and to buy G-strings and glitter. Sadly, the shows have had their technical difficulties and in the past as they’ve had to combat, zombies, gangsters, human-animal hybrids, televangelists and snake oil salesmen. The performers promise you beautiful, clothing-averse women, lots of laughs, spinning tassels, and flying underpants. So join us for Hotsy Totsy Burlesque at The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women where the motto is “We’ve fallen, we can’t get up, and we like it that way!”

It's a feeling of having stumbled into a bar outside of the space-time continuum, where the best bits of sexy 20th century aesthetics (early jazz, false eyelashes, garter belts) have been gathered together for some smart and sensual dancers to play with. -
