If it worked for chocolate and peanut-butter, maybe, just maybe, it can work for comedy and burlesque too. At least that's what Margaret Cho is hoping for. She's put together a new show called The Sensuous Woman that combines–you guessed it–stand-up and sexy lady dancing.
Gothamist has an interview with Cho, in which she discusses some of the inspiration behind the one-of-a-kind show. Here's a little:
Tell us about your new burlesque-style variety show The Sensuous Woman.
It is inspired by variety shows like Sonny and Cher or Donny and Marie
and also the big stadium tours Madonna does, but totally x-rated.
And here's some more:
What was your inspiration for this show?
I saw a burlesque show a couple of years ago and it utterly changed my
life. Seeing real women with curves being sexy and beautiful cured me
of a lifetime of eating disorders. Watching someone with a big booty
shaking it like they just don't care is good for all that ails you.
