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!

If you bring in 2 boxes of dry pasta tonight, you’re in for FREE!  We’re collecting donations for Second Helpings for the Holidays – so please help us by donating at least 2 boxes of pasta – fusilli, spaghetti, linguini, penne, bowtie, rainbow macaroni – anything goes!

Two great comics – choose either location!  Just bring in the pasta, and get in free!

Homegrown Talent (or…Loco Locals!)

We’re definitely aware of the side-splittingly funny local comics we have right here in Indianapolis.  They reside in our little communities, like Broad Ripple, Fountain Square, and the notorious West Side, and more and every week they get up on stage and represent.  But we got to thinking, maybe YOU don’t know that!

You’ve read about comedian Jeff Oskay last week in NUVO Newsweekly and came out to see him perform in Broad Ripple.

(sorry, a little old clip!)

But it doesn’t stop there!

You can catch great local comics like Jeff every week at Crackers!  Starting with Open Mic Night on Tuesday nights!  You’ll see veterans like Marques Bunn and Matt Holt, as well as rookies; plus some great regional talent, and often a big name surprise or two!
