Why Glasgow Burlesque has blossomed
Burlesque was invented by the working class to take the p*ss out the middle class. They would dress up over the top and perform parody performances that were cheeky, self depreciating with a little bit of teasing on top. I can’t think of a culture burlesque was more suited to then Glasgow. Glaswegians are very proud of our working class backgrounds, have some of the best comedians in the world and can always be found taking the p*ss out of each other. It’s what we do!
You’ll no doubt wonder what to wear to a burlesque club and where to buy them. Yes believe it or not you don’t have to wear a coset, stockings & suspenders but to be honest you can if you want to. The best plan is to go to their website and have a look at what the people in the crowds are wearing.
