Just because Super Happy Funtime Burlesque is based in the Midwest doesn't mean you're going to find a Prairie Home Companion-esque ensemble cast. That's because there aint nothing prairie about this naughty musical comedy act.
Tonight, the troupe lands in the simmering hot streets of Tempe, where you can witness hot chicks in fishnets, dudes and dudettes in fake mustaches performing strip teases, and personas with names like Lala Vulvaria and Camilla Cupcake. If youre able to come up with a more original way to enjoy your Friday night other than nearly nude girls, crazy magicians, and an MC by the name of Mr. Happy Pants, well, then, we really dont know what to do about you.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
