Photos from Tooth Box: A Vagina Dentata Competition (NSFW)

Chew on these photos from Scary Ben and Darlinda Just Darlinda's Tooth Box extravaganza. Darlinda Just Darlinda and Scary Ben, together known as “the perverse George and Gracie” of the burly-Q scene, have been putting on shows concentrating on the surreal side of alt-burlesque for a while now, via their monthly Bushwick Burlesque extravaganzas at the aptly named Bizarre. But it looks like the pair are going to be outdoing themselves in the absurdity stakes with their new venture, First Tuesdays, at the same venue. The series kicked off on Tuesday, December 3, with the charmingly monikered Tooth Box: A Vagina Dentata Competition—which, as these photos from the ever-intrepid Filip Wolak Prove, was pretty much what the name implies. It sure looks like it was more fun than that Teeth flick from a few years back!

Photos: Excelsior Burlesque's We Are Not Amused

These photos from Excelsior Burlesque's latest edition are, in fact, quite amusing. If you were on the Bowery on Tuesday, December 10th, and thought that you spied Edina Monsoon, Patsy Stone or a particularly buxom Mrs. Slocombe flouncing about on the R Bar stage, you weren’t drinking too much. Well, perhaps you were, but the visions were real—you were at Excelsior Burlesque’s We Are Not Amused, the monthly show’s tribute to the BBC, starring Ruby Solitaire, Miss Rose, Dottie Dynamo, Crimson Kitty, Minnie d'Moocha, Kat Mandu, JZ Bich and Ivory Askew.
