Sexy Saturdays | Uptown Underground | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 19 2015
Price: $15-$40
Get in the holiday spirit by watching performers in circus makeup crack raunchy jokes and take their clothes off, possibly while sporting Santa beards. Every weekend the Uptown Underground features a different lineup of holiday-themed cabaret and burlesque performances, courtesy of the Cabaret Project, Kiss Kiss Cabaret, and Pervesk’ Burlesk’, among others. Expect music and hammy acts—including a Bette Midler tribute if you go on the right night—and lots of inventive striptease from the tassel-twirling Kiss Kiss Coquettes. The latter are introduced by a rotating comic emcee whose modern stand-up patter (“You guys”) can seem at odds with the old-school ribaldry on offer. One ticket gets you into the whole evening, though midnight general admission is also available. —Andrew Lapin
