Tease-O-Rama at Bimbo’s: April 20 & 21

Burlesque returns to Bimbo’s 365 Club! Dating back to the early 16th century of France and Italy, burlesque has had quite a historic life. This comedic live performance of song and dance flourished in the United States starting in the 1840’s, entertaining masses in cabarets, theaters and clubs. As one of the oldest nightclubs in San Francisco with a rich dinner theater past, Bimbo’s 365 Club was not without part of this vaudeville movement in its American heyday. From the 1930’s through the 1960’s, Bimbo’s showcased many burlesque acts. The stage was packed with beautiful showgirls and the club hosted “3 Spectacular Revues Nightly”. With the resurgence of burlesque, we are excited to host another year of Tease-O-Rama, the first showcase and convention dedicated to the neo-burlesque revival. Since 2001, Tease-O-Rama has been bringing new and old burlesque performers together for one blowout weekend. This saucy showmanship is kept alive for a new generation of ardent fans with a bawdy history lesson that’s not to be missed. Tease-O-Rama takes you back to the days when the tease outweighed the sleaze – when dancers shocked, titillated, and teased theaters packed with sophisticated ladies and gentlemen. There couldn’t be a more appropriate venue than Bimbo’s 365 Club to witness burlesque for the twenty-first century!
