At 9pm on Tuesday,August 13th Excelsior Burlesque has drawn together a cast that illustrates some of the best burlesque in NYC and beyond - in more ways than one. Drawing from the depths of their comic collections, you'll have no issues with this show as Ruby Solitaire, Anja Keister, Plucky Charms, Hayley Jane, Vonka Romanov and Fancy Feast flash you their back pages in a night of graphic novels made truly graphic.

We've all seen Super Girl and Wonder Woman strip down to their battle-tassels onstage, but not every comic worthy of public nudity is about pummeling villains in skin-tight leotards. This month, Excelsior Burlesque brings your favorite serials off the page in three dimensions with "Comics Without Capes." This look at the inky antics and paper dames of the other, not so heroic, but still pretty super, funny books, will leave your pages sticky and your hands dirty.

Bringing you, in full color (and it's not even Sunday!):

Anja Keister - Makes a dead man stand up . . .
Plucky Charms - Keeps on truckin' . . .
Haley Jane - Making you purr . . .
Vonka Romanov - A sex bob-omb . . .
Fancy Feast - Will make the bus come . . .
& Ruby Solitaire - Steals your family jewels . . .

Hosted by Moe Cheezmo (already mainly a caricature)!

Join us at R Bar at 218 Bowery for this striptease ode to the strips of old - starting at 9pm on August 13th! A $10 admission lets you in the back room . . . where we keep the "adult comix!"
