The 5th Annual Empire Burlesque Festival is produced The Finger Lake's own
Whiskey Tango Sideshow!
Our 2020 Headliner:
Mr. Gorgeous . . . 6 feet 5 inches of dorky ambition.
Fusing Boylesque, physical comedy, and circus, Gorgeous is a pure spectacle of foolishness and mayhem in the best possible sense. A shy guy, in a big body, Gorgeous works the stage with a timid confidence and strives to entertain with his geeky charm.
Mr. Gorgeous showcases a variety of acts ranging from a battle with his “catch of the day” . . . a three foot long largemouth bass that strips and soaks, to his interpretation of classic burlesque with a Gorgeous twist.
