Crush: Comedy and Burlesque Valentine’s Event at Gramps in Miami
Just in Time for the Holiday, Stand-up and Sexual Innuendo Take to the Stage
Ft. Lauderdale – Friday, February 12th promises to be a night of romance at Gramps in Miami. Burlesque and comedy combine for “Crush!” with 2 shows, 8pm and 1030pm, followed by a Smiths/Morrisey tribute band, The Ordinary Boys.
The show is being produced by Miami comedian and performance artist Kat Toledo and Divas and Dolls Burlesque Director CoCo Le Bod. According to Toledo, “Comedy and burlesque do fuse together for a great night of entertainment.” Says Le Bod, “What I love about burlesque is the theatrical aspect. Yes, it’s sexy, but it also tells a story and puts on a show. When we combine it in a show like this, we can highlight the overall entertainment factor, not just the sex factor.” Although, for Valentine’s Day weekend, the sex factor will be high!
And, this show promises something for everyone! Says Toledo, “What’s cool about these shows is that often the comedians are just as sexy as the burlesque dancers and the dancers just as witty as the comedians.” The comedy portion features Lisa Corrao (Comedy Central, Nickelodeon), Esther Ku (MTV, Opie and Anthony), Pam Bruno (Ultimate Miami Comedian Winner 2015) and Julie Baez (Comedy Zone). After a sold-out debut show at the Funky Buddha in September, Divas and Dolls Burlesque returns to the stage with their high-caliber dance performances, in both group and solo acts. The show features boylesque performer Valentino Royale and CoCo Le Bod, a select performer at the recent Great Burlesque Expo 10 in Boston, Massachusetts. The evening will be hosted by Kat Toledo and CoCo Le Bod.
Tickets for the show are $15-25, with bottle specials and Valentine’s treats available. Shows are at 8pm and 10:30pm. Each show includes 4 stand-up comedians, hand-selected by Kat Toledo and burlesque performances by the entire Divas and Dolls troupe. Tickets are extremely limited and may be ordered at www.ticketfly.com/venue/17749-gramps/
