Burlesque has always been near and dear to my heart.
Having dabbled in the art form at a young age, I soon developed the nickname “the Velvet Hammer” on the playground. By the age of 8, I slicked back my hair and had a handlebar moustache.
And by my late teens I was stripping at speakeasys along the I-95 corridor.
So you can imagine how stoked I am about Freaks and Femmes, coming to the HMML on Sunday, August 14th!
It’s brought to you by the fine, upstanding citizen-geniuses of Circus Contraption and also includes a burlesque workshop, where you can learn all the moves that’ll get the pulses of businessmen everywhere racing.
Here are the details!
