Peepshow Menagerie

Pop culture lovers, at attention: Peepshow Menagerie specializes in sexy send-ups of cultural lightening rods from Disneyland to Marvel Comics to Weird Al Yankovic—it's a place to nerd out and get turned on all at the same time. Each themed show is a full-on theatrical production with comedic hosts in character providing the connective tissue between acts. The sassy performers—a mix of up-and-comers and local legends − manage to make themes as esoteric as David Lynch films, Doctor Who, and the Ring Cycle opera engaging and accessible to all comers (getting nearly naked certainly helps).

Sexy, funny, and nerdy performances like I've never seen before at any other burlesque show. This isn't anything like that Cher and Xtina movie from a few years back. I've only seen a few shows over the last year, but they seem quite comfortable with going from crazy comedic acts to styles not unlike you would see in old black and white movies. Sometimes they feature guys taking off their clothes as well, but it's all fun and seems to make the mostly female audience happy too. I prefer it when they are in the big ballroom next door as it can get cramped in the smaller room as it was the first time I saw them, but the other shows I saw after that were in the big room. Definitely a great show to bring friends to for a night out and they let you take pictures with performers after the show. (Warning: seating can be limited on both sides if you don't get there early.) A++ show!
