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.
