About The BURLYPICKS


The Burlypicks is the search to pick out the best of Burlesque and variety arts from around the world, and this year's Burlypicks will be bigger, better, and more challenging, with more titles to win and more cities taking part. It's the ultimate burlesque showdown and it starts in a city near you.

The Acts


Acceptance into the The 2017 Burlypicks Finals will be contingent upon winning in a one of the 15 Regional competitions taking place around the world.

The 1st Place Winner in each regional event will be invited to compete at The Finals with their Main Act for the Grand Prize. but this year, we will also be awarding (based on your performance in your Main Act OR an additional shorter act) 4 Masters Awards; Master of Lip Sync, Master of Singing, and our two new regional titles; Master of Amazement and Master of Comedy.

Master of Lip Sync will be awarded to the act that displays the most impressive skill in Lip Syncing. Master of Singing will be awarded to the act that displays the most impressive vocals. Master of Amazement goes to most shocking, dangerous, mysterious, or talented act that brings our jaws to the floor. Master of Comedy goes to the joker who makes us laugh the hardest. .

We at Burlesque Bitch do not define burlesque, but we allow the community to decide what kind of acts they want to bring. Open to endless variety, we are encouraging Stripteasers, Dancers, Musicians, Magicians, Aerialists, Jugglers, Clowns, Comedians, Ventriloquists, Sideshow acts, Drag acts, etc. . . to complete for the gold! The acts are judged in a manner that does not favor any one type of talent, judges on 5 disciplines: Talent, Poise, Polish, Costume, and Creativity.

Acts may be 2-8 minutes in length and can be individuals or groups. Additional 3 minutes or less acts may be submitted, in consideration for one of the Masters Awards. The selection committee for a region may chose to have one of your short acts in the show or not; acceptance of your main act does not guarantee acceptance of your additional act and vice versa. Danger acts are dependent on the venue, and may require the performer to be insured.


The Games


We also will be awarding Masters' Awards for 3 Games; Master of Improvisation, Master of Assels, and Master of Tassels. When you win a Masters Award you can also compete in that Masters category at The Finals.

In Masters of Tassels you take to the stage with your opponents and have 2 minutes to twirl your tassels to the crowd. In Master of Assels, you your money-maker. Performers must supply their own costume for these events, including tassels and assels. The winners of Master of the Assles and Master of the Tassles will be chosen by audience applause and determined by the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. If for some reason the MC cannot determine a winner, the judges will be brought in to decide based on their read of the audience applause, not their personal opinion of the performance.

The Improvisational contest put you on stage with a random song, a random prop, and a random rule to follow. Winning is based on whoever navigates these obstacles to put together the best act when put on the spot, as determined by the panel of judges.
