Now in its tenth year, Monday Night Tease is LA's longest-running weekly burlesque show, helmed by the "godmother" of LA burlesque, the buxom, potty-mouthed Lili VonSchtupp. It's kind of like the Ellis Island of striptease—performing here is a rite of passage for newcomers to the neo-burlesque scene, so it's a great spot to scope out fresh talent. But the headliners are top-notch local and international soloists and troupes, meaning you'll be dazzled by more than the rhinestones and glitter. Themed shows pay tribute to icons like Madonna, Prince, and Quentin Tarantino. Birthday girls/boys get paddled by the cast.
