Burlesque and Nightlife Directory

Interested in attending a local burlesque show in your city? 

Burlesque is historically considered a parody of culture, a literary genre, a sister of theater, and a fun form of variety entertainment. Read more at, “What is Burlesque?”, “Why Do People Take Burlesque Classes?“, and “The Best Burlesque Websites.”

By curating a burlesque directory of intriguing Burlesque Shows, Burlesque Troupes, Burlesque Supper Clubs, Burlesque Events, Burlesque Productions, and Burlesque Performers, the diversity of the industry can begin to be understood. This isn’t to be a comprehensive list of the Burlesque Industry, as there are numerous websites and even niche burlesque directories that already exist.

Also note, this directory includes burlesque, pole dance, drag, sideshow, theatre, circus, BDSM & Kink, and many other forms of nightlife events and productions specifically curated by Switchress Shay AuLait.

Biographical Info

What the Funk?! is a POC Burlesque Tribute to Funk Music that was conceived as a show idea in early 2018 after our founder. Mx. Pucks A’Plenty, thought about doing a classic burlesque number to a Stevie Wonder song but realized it wouldn’t count as a classic era song choice. This got their wheels turning, and What the Funk?! was born. On August 24, 2018, we kicked off two nights of two all-POC casts at the historic Jewelbox Theatre in The Rendezvous in Seattle, Washington.
