I'll just go to a strip club thank you very much.

And yes, it is the same thing.

Only at one place you actually see something while the other one you don't but instead have to sit through vaudeville music.

Yes it's stripping but no it's not the same thing as a strip club. More often than not, New York burlesque is about comedy and satire. I don't think you get to see robots teasing you to "Weird Science" or women dressed as lobsters dunking themselves in a tub of gold butter glitter at a strip club. The New York burlesque scene is hysterical, creative, and completely unique in the world. It's not just about pasties and boas, for chrissakes.

Like a strip club? Are you fucking crazy? It's nothing like that. This is about fun much more than getting off.

I once heard of a legendary burlesque dance named Harrison.
