Burlesque as a form of entertainment has been with us since the Victorian era. It enjoyed immense popularity in the mid 1900’s, but by the 70’s had sadly almost died out. For sometime it looked like it may be lost forever until the turn of the century, since when it has seen a tremendous revival in popularity. Though burlesque shows can now be seen regularly at theaters everywhere, it still remains a relatively underground art form to the general public. To those that participate,however, it becomes an entire way of life that goes much further than the stage.
