“Voting is a right best exercised by people who have taken time to learn about the issues.” – Tony Snow

Copyright The commanding burlesque showdown is back! We have all heard the impassioned, and sometimes very heated, arguments in geek circles. Who is the better captain; is it James T. Kirk or Jean Luc Picard? What about other captains found in television, books, and movies? We have ten captains to put to the test and we aim to settle that little score. And then some with your help. Who will you promote to commodore?



“Watch and learn, kids.” – Unknown

Like physics, the internet has its own set of “natural” laws. The most exciting: Rule 34, which states that if you can think of it, there is sexually explicit material of it. Therein lies our inspiration. With a steaming hot cast of burlesque’s finest, Rule 34 explores the deepest depths of our imaginations and the interwebs that bring them to light. 

If You Can Think of It, There’s Porn, er, Burlesque of It!

“Why you think the net was born? Porn! Porn! Porn!” – Trekkie Monster, from the hit Broadway musical Avenue Q. 

Did you know that over 30% of all Internet traffic contains porn and video site YouPorn uses 6 times the bandwidth of the streaming media site Hulu. We think Trekkie Monster might be onto something.

Rule 34 is May 10th at the Re-Bar in Seattle. 

Our Master of Ceremonies, our Potentate of Porn, our Sultan of Smut, our Dictator of Dirt is Mister Bawdy. 

Following his lead is Tamara the Trapeze Lady, Boom Boom L’Roux, Whisper De Corvo, Miss Violet DeVille, Maggie McMuffin, Cinnamon Maxxine, Magnolia Monroe, Morgue Anne, Dee Lushious, and Ms. Audrey Rugburn! 

The doors open at 6:30 pm, seating begins at 7:00 pm, show starts at 7:30 pm.

What porn is she looking for? If I could just zoom in on the screen...

Tickets start at $13 and are available through www.BrownPaperTickets.com and for $15 at the box office day of show.

What porn is she searching for?

CopyrightAs the reality storm comes to a head seek refuge at Worlds' End and stay for the stories

Join us for an extravaganza of clever and sassy homage to the many worlds of Neil Gaiman, a prolific writer with notable works spanning comic books, novels, children's books and stories, television series, and film. With genres ranging from fantasy to science fiction and the occasional epic children's tale, the stories you'll see are quite diverse.

The tales involve a goddess, Beldam and her doll, the heart of a blue box, a young woman who is far older than she appears, an enslaved faerie, the very essence of dreams personified, and more.

Performing for you on these June nights are Ms. Vixen Valentine, Kendra Hayes, Candy Apples, Miss Violet DeVille, Ivy DuPri, Czech Mate, Miss Penelope Rose, Morgue Anne, Stella Vaughn, Lana Milk-n-Honey, and Pacific Syren.

CopyrightThe month of March is a month with a reputation: It comes in like a lamb and goes out like a multi-headed beast that wants to devour the lamb, the children, and that little old lady who lives down the block because she can't out run it. Oh, it also likes to show off its sexy self.


Okay, maybe it's not quite like that but we're certainly bringing the sexy beasts to Belltown on March 9th.


Purple Devil Productions presents Monsters, Merkins, and Mayhem. It's an evening of burlesque and belly dance to show the month of March that we are not the lambs to be lead to the slaughter.

You're aware of Captain Steve Rogers, yes? Perhaps you're more familiar with his persona, Captain America. The eternal soldier. The boy scout. He's here to deal with Morgue Anne and he needs to put a stop to his nefarious plans. Perhaps he should be more focused on his competition, the homicidal clown and patriarch of the Firefly clan, Captain Spaulding. What will the proprietor of the Museum of Madmen and Monsters bring to the stage? We're certain it will be most fowl.


The Morgue Anne and Nikola Nova face off against Kitty Calamity in the throw down of epic proportions. Captain Royale: A Commanding Burlesque Showdown this Saturday at the Re-Bar. 


Who will you choose?


Ten captains. One reigns supreme. Vote early. Vote often.

Good evening my lovelies! 


It's September and I'm writing this in a coffee shop after returning from the 70th annual World Science Fiction Convention in Chicago for ChiCon 7. I had a fantastic time and introduced a whole lot of people to the glories of nerdy burlesque or, as we like to call it, nerdlesque. Being home after a long trip alwaays feels so good. Especially after rolling in the rhinestones and glitter. (I'm not sure the cats ever appreciate that.)


But let me give you a glimpse of my upcoming shows of Lust.Love.Lifetime, Debauchery, and NERDZ! [more]


First up in this very busy month is Lust.Love.Lifetime: A Show Benefitting Washington United for Marriage at the Rendezvous Jewelbox Theater on the 13th. The show starts at 7:30 pm. The show is $20 and profits go directly to Washington United for Marriage. This show is going to be awesome! This show features the talents of Eva Fairwood, Miz Melancholy, Scandal from Bohemia, Betty Fish, Sara Dipity, myself, and more. 


Fantastic burlesque and supportting marriage equality in Washington? Total win!

How do you follow up a show about lust and love? With Debauchery, of course. In its usual third Thursday of the month slot, Lily Divine Productions brings us a night of entertainment tailored for the queer audience at Neighbor's Night Club in Seattle.


Doors open at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm. Advanced tickets are just $10 and $15 at the door.


This month's show features some amazing performers! In no particular order, other than by name, I get to share the stage with Al Lykya, Amarylis Brindamour, Fay Onyx, Gema Lusterious, Harriet Scary, Juicy Fruit, Miss Kitty Baby, Pidgeon Von Tramp, Tiger Bombshell makes a debut peformance, and Zusha Rouge.


Lily Divine Productions uses Debauchery as a means to raise money for local LGBTQI organizations through community grants generated by the shows.


Copyright


Last, but certainly not least, NERDZ! returns to the Jewelbox again this year for two nights, September 22nd and 23rd! You read that right, you now two oppurtunities to take in some amazing nerdity, that amazing confluence of nerdly pleasures combined with nudity. Sounds simple enough, yes?


The show on Saturday, September 22nd, begins at 7:00pm and doors open at 6:30pm. The doors for Sunday's show open at 6pm with the show starting at 6:30pm. 


Tickets are $18 at the door and $15 in advance of the show by way of Brown Paper Tickets.


 


Leading me in this night of sexy geekry is Scarlett O'Hairdye, Sailor St. Claire, Nathaniel Johnstone, Tempest, Morgue Anne, Bolt Action, Stella Vaughn, Scandal from Bohemia, and Candy Apples.


Those geniuses from Card Kingdom are even putting together a prize package that will be as enviable as it will be epic.

And October 3rd see's my return to Oakland, CA, in iL Nocturnal's iLnoc-off! It's a benefit support of We Are Family, a community organization that helps homeless LGBT youth in need. The Seattle Police Department estimates that there anywhere between 500 and 2000 homeless youth on the streets of Seattle and and that nearly half of those numbers are LGBTQI teens. If you want to help but cannot make the show, watch this site for details on how you can help make a difference.

NERDZ!


"Nerds, like us, are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like, jump-up-and-down-and-strip-off-your-clothes-can't-control-yourself love it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they're saying is 'You like stuff.' Which is not a good insult at all. Like, 'You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.'" 


- John Green said something like this. Sort of. We think the boobies are an added bonus.

Purple Devil Productions presents...


NERDZ!


Epic. That's really all we can say to describe this evening of nerdy burlesque by some of the nerdiest performers around. Fantasy action and video games, Muppets and classic science fiction movies are just the tip of the iceberg of the nerdy topics that we have up our collective gloves.


Leading us in this romp is one of our favorite nerds, Violet Wilde. She'll be leading this team of explorers, celebrants, and geeks, in all things nerdy.


 



  • Scarlett O'Hairdye

  • Sailor St. Claire

  • Whisper de Corvo

  • Violet DeVille

  • Paige Rustles

  • Nathaniel Johnstone

  • Tempest

  • Morgue Anne

  • Bolt Action

  • Stella Vaughn


 


This is one epic evening. 


In fact, the evening is so epic we're doing twice the nerdiness over two days! First on Saturday, September 22nd, where doors open at 6:30 pm and the show is at 7:00! Then, then on Sunday, September 23rd, is an encore performance on at 6:30 pm and the doors open at 6:00 pm!


But wait, there's more! The truly fantastic gaming store Card Kingdom is joining the fun and they've assembled a prize package that only be described as amazeballs and we'll be giving one away each night as a part of our raffle. Surely, you're not going to want to miss out on this!


Tickets are $18 at the door and $15 through Brown Paper Tickets.
