A Male Stripper Parody and Improv Comedy Show
A fictitious male stripper troupe (played by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians) perform a sexylarious improv comedy show. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance”. These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh at them.
Women often say the most attractive thing about a man is his sense of humour – so ladies, these stripped down comedians are sure to make your head explode. As for all you men out there – don’t worry, this is definitely a parody of male strippers. Some of the performers have what’s called ‘Comedy Bodies’ – they will make you look good by comparison.
Semi undressed and completely unscripted, The Comic Strippers take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.
WARNING: No extreme nudity, just extreme hilarity. A show for all genders… 19+ only
