Great Burlesque Exposition of 2016

We are so honored to share the stage with incredible performers from around the world at this year’s Great Burlesque Expostion, the 10th anniversary!  Even further, we are immeasurably gratified to be named “Best Hybrid” and “Dangrrr Doll‘s Personal Pick” for our act “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” which includes elements inspired by our first visit to the Great Burlesque Expo and the incomparable Willy Barrett (aka Joe Paul Williams).


Also bringing hardware back to the Baltimore/DC metro area were “Most Humorous” Ruby Spruce and Private Tails taking home “Matt Finish‘s Personal Pick”.

Congrats to all the performers, winners, judges, organizers, and thank you to everyone for making us a part of it!!!

The Bawdy Shop Burlesque Stars are sailing into the Creative Alliance to kick off your July 4th weekend, only on July 3rd! When a nearly forgotten Goddess commands them to find the charm in Charm City, the women of Bawdy Shop Burlesque must plumb the depths of the Inner Harbor, battle fearsome (yet strangely sexy) rats, visit iconic tourist destinations and get crabs. You heard me. Don’t miss this Odysseus-inspired showcase!  Click the pic for tix!

Stay Classy, Baltimore

Bawdy Shop Burlesque’s February 21st extravaganza at Ottobar!  Yes, it’s really called “Stay Classy, Baltimore!”  With SPECIAL GUEST Foxy Tann, in her ONLY area appearance. “The Boss of Burlesque and Her Highness of Highness,” Foxy has shocked and delighted audiences across the country with that certain brand of broad that’s hard to forget.

Our emcee is transgendered comic extraordinaire and the 2015 Queen of Crabs herself, Violet Gray!

And, of course, we’ll feature the always new and mostly nude antics of Bawdy Shop Burlesque’s Sunny Sighed, Kay Sera and Ruby Rockafella! Our stage panther Giddy GoGo will be there to try to pick up the pieces—possibly in a HazMat suit–because this burlesque show is gettin’ downright dirty!
