Who’s Got The Best Fake College ID? CONTEST

faber_college_eric_stratton_id_cardWe like funny stuff here at Crackers Comedy, so we’ve decided to run a monthly contest starting of course, on April Fools!

If you don’t know this already, Thursday nights are always college night! Which means if you RSVP online and show up with your college ID, it’s only $5 to get in. EVERY THURSDAY. And the coolest thing, is we don’t care WHOSE college ID it is. Hell, you can make one up. And we encourage it.

So, we’re going to take a photo of you and your college ID on Thursdays when you come in so we can start a collage of the most insane and ridiculous college IDs we can find. They will be on display for everyone to see. *If you’d like to participate for the monthly prize.

We will pick out our favorite at the end of the month, and the winner will receive a $50 gift card to spend at Crackers Comedy Clubs.

Let’s get creative!!!

Erin Go Bra – less!

This St. Patrick’s Day, we’re welcoming you to Crackers, Mardis Gras Style!  Join us for a fun night of Burlesque!  Read on to learn how you can win FREE TIX to the show!

What is Angel Burlesque?

Angel Burlesque is Indianapolis’s only professional burlesque company. We present full length, theatrical style shows that showcase singing, dancing, comedy and the classic art of the striptease.

What will I see at Erin Go Bragh…less?

Erin Go Bragh…less is a full length (about 90 minutes), theatrical style show that features singing, dancing, comedy and striptease routines. The show’s theme is a St. Patrick’s Day parade…the best St. Patty’s Day Parade you’ll ever see!

What was burlesque?

Originally burlesque was referred to as the poor man’s theatre and featured comedians, chorus girls, musicians and the striptease artist. In contrast to the snooty theatre of the day, burlesque shows were light hearted, silly and with the daring (ankle and calf revealing) costumes of the chorus girls, sexy. The root of the word burlesque means “to make fun of.” Current events, theatre, and popular literature were all sources of material.

Who were some famous burlesque comedians?

Burlesque was a great training ground for comedians. Some you may have heard of include: Abbott and Costello, Jimmy Durante and Bert Lahr (a burlesque comedian long before he donned the mane of the Cowardly Lion).

Who were some famous burlesque striptease artists?

Gypsy Rose Lee (who’s life story was put onstage in the musical, Gypsy), Georgia Sothern, Lili St. Cyr, Ann Corio and Sally Rand; just to name a very few of the many gorgeous women of burlesque.

Check out some of these videos below, and head over to our Facebook page and enter our contest for tickets to see Thursday night’s show!  Enter your favorite burlesque-inspired photo for a chance to win!
