About The Burlympics
Burlesque Bitch presents The 2013 BURLYMPICS: The Burlesque & Variety Performance Competition.
There was a time when Burlesque did not mean Striptease, it meant Vaudeville, Comedy, Magic... performances of all varieties. And it still does! The Burlympics is a Festival for ALL performers in our community, to perform and compete on the same stage.
When and Where
The Burlympics will be held on Friday September 6th and Saturday September 7th at Cafe Club Fais Do Do, located at 5253 W Adams Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90016.
