Little Raven Publishing and Va Va Boombah are proud to present Saucy, an evening of burlesque and erotic spoken word that promises to stimulate your senses (or at least a few of them) and bring you the best of both worlds. Allow yourself to be teased and titillated with erotic stories and poetry from Iron Man Dosh Luckwell, erotic novelist Kathryn O’Halloran, kinkster of all trades Hunter Bruin, the funny-ha-ha and funny-hot Mardi O’Connor and Randall Stephens, the fastest tongue in Melbourne. Interspersed with the spoken word performances are burlesque acts by Va Va Boombah’s resident plus-sized vixens, the luscious and hypnotic Miss Charity Case, tassel-twirling funny lady Harlotte Brontë, leggy badass Bambi Lipschitz and the voluptuously sensual Cupcake Kitten.
MCed by Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Melbourne Fringe Festival favourite, comedian Lisa-Skye (Ladyboner, Songs My Parents Taught Me).
Sunday 30th June 2013 at The Toff in Town, Second Floor Curtain House, 242 Swanston St Melbourne (accessible venue). Limited seating is available.
Tickets available at the door, $15 full/$10 concession
