    In their own words, the Burlesque Dads will discuss what it is to be a male performer, a parent, and a supporter of Burlesque.

    Get ready to laugh … and maybe write us a seething letter of protest. As usual, alcohol was involved and there is no censoring this group!

    In this episode we talk about:

    · What’s coming up for Maker Howl

    · Chicken feather boas

    · Maui burlesque

    · Our script-writer, Sadie Vine

    · “Burlesque is about normal people finding their power and their beauty.” Well-said Doc!

    · Sexy is a state of mind

    · Virtual vs live performance

    · First-timer performances and audience interaction

    · A cameo from Bourbon Layne … who is not a Dad, thank you for the clarification

    · This is what’s beauty!

    · What makes burlesque “t**s up”?

    · What’s in the future for these men on stage?

HawaiiLB ,

Interesting Topic!

Never a dull moment on this podcast!

Austin Auntie ,

Funny and quirky in a very good way!

I was sent to this podcast by a friend and I plan to thank her greatly!! The stories are funny and relatable, and I loved the banter between the moms. Definitely indulge yourself with this audio treat!

Nonna-Sue ,

Eye opening & hilarious!

I had no idea what went into a Burlesque show and this podcasts shines a light on that PLUS kids! They say they aren’t a parenting show, but they have a lot of insight on parenting and adulting in the limelight. Very interesting! Worth a listen even if you don’t have kids and have no idea what Burlesque is!
