A fictitious male stripper troupe, played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians, performs a sexylarious improv comedy show next weekend.
The Comic Strippers perform March 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Tidemark Theatre.
These guys try to be sexy — it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes, they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance.”
These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh at them, fresh off sold-out shows in Vegas, Australia and now Canada and just in time for stagette season.
Gentlemen, not to worry, this is definitely a parody of male strippers. Some of the performers have what’s called “comedy bodies” — they will make you look good by comparison.
Warning: No extreme nudity, just extreme hilarity. It’s a show for all genders, 19+ only.
