Learn the ABCs of MCing from Bastard Keith, the drunken reprobate who has worked stages from the New York Burlesque Festival to the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend.

Register now:

In a friendly, constructive atmosphere, we'll discuss such basics as:
-Your persona and gimmick (if you can bring your gimmick with you, do)
-Vocal and physical confidence
-Kicking things off with a bang
-Keeping the energy up while the stage kitten is picking up (or sweeping up or even mopping up)
-When to do crowd work and when to seriously shut the hell up
-Etiquette towards your fellow artists both onstage and off
-Making sure your hosting is intersectional and not being a crappy ally

This is a good workshop for anyone interested in the art of the MC, from beginners to people who want to see Keith trip over his own words for once.

Bastard Keith is a burlesque MC, singer, writer and gadabout. He is the inventor of "Burletiquette." With his partner Rosebud he founded The Sophisticates, the only burlesque show to be thrown out of the Plaza Hotel for indecency. He appears frequently at the Slipper Room and has hosted at the New York Burlesque Festival, the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival, the Toronto International Burlesque Festival and the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend. He has also hosted events for the renowned Helsinki circus troupe Race Horse Company, and for Vice and Bacardi.
