Star Wars burlesque to hit Canberra Theatre on Star Wars Day

By 9 March 2012 24

4 May 2012

Yesterday I was getting my nerd on with obscure references to long forgotten Dungeons and Dragons monsters created by the nerdiest (and most awesome) of authors Charles Stross.

But even I feel a little dirty alerting you to the existence of Star Wars Burlesque coming to the Canberra Theatre on Star Wars Day (May the Fourth of course you ignorant lout).

Because we never really did get enough of Slave Leia.

(And hey, who needs the ability to get a date when you’ve got the internet right? Right?)

“Burelesque” = strip shows for hipsters.

Just stick a Kony monster in the show and it will be a sell out (pardon the pun).

I hope those sand people are easily startled and return in greater numbers…

Dammit, how do I sell this to Mrs Duffbowl as a legitimate form of entertainment and art?

Yes, you’re unlikely to see a waxed Wookie.

In the past, beauty therapist rarely survived beyond the ‘sack’ part of a ‘crack, sack and back’ wax. Those that did survive no longer had arms to enable them to continue their craft.

Since then it’s been conventional wisdom to always shave a wookie.

‘Get in there you big furry oaf, I don’t care what you smell!’

‘Luke, at that speed do you think you’ll be able to pull out in time?’

‘Put that thing away before you get us all killed.’

‘You’ve got something jammed in here real good.’

‘Look at the size of that thing!’

‘I thought that hairy beast would be the end of me.’

‘Size matters not. Judge me by my size, do you?’

‘There’s an awful lot of moisture in here.’

‘Possible he came in through the south entrance.’

‘Control, control! You must learn control!’

‘Hey, point that thing someplace else.’

‘I never knew I had it in me.’

‘There is good in him, I’ve felt it.’

‘Hey, Luke, thanks for coming after me — now I owe you one.’

‘Back door, huh? Good idea!’

‘She’s gonna blow!’

‘Pull out! You’re not doing any good back there!’

‘YAHOOOOO! You’re all clear, kid. Now let’s blow this thing and go home. ‘

“Oh. I thought they smelled bad on the *outside*.’

I was not strong enough to defeat colourful sydney racing identity. Like his master before him, be destroyed, he must.

Unfortunately I wont be able to make the show on the 5th at the Canberra Theatre, so I’ve got 2 discounted tickets for sale. Contact me at dalesdeadbug1@gmail.com if you’re interested.
