Late Night Tit-Bits 

When: Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 21 2009
Price: $15
There are indeed tits and bits in this remounted burlesque revue, but neither is especially titillating. The host attempts some improv and stand-up but does little more than fill time between the ladies, who look uncomfortable in their lingerie, and strip as though they're filling time, too. The dancers introduce their characters with monologues that show better direction and some humor, but mostly rely on hackneyed jokes. Still, I appreciated their unusual, strangely arousing identities: polygamist-cult runaway, Dolly Parton's overlooked sister, ebullient real estate agent, hippie-ninja. And Christy Bonstell is excellent as a recovering Weight Watchers dieter who's literally chained to her scale and practically makes love to a doughnut. --Ryan Hubbard
