To say Super Happy Funtime Burlesque hit Red Room like a bomb isn't really accurate. It hit more like the Pentagon's legendary "gay bomb." From the moment they hit the stage, the audience found themselves unexpectedly enticed, thrilled and somewhat confused about the experience.
For nearly three hours, a packed house was lead on a bizarre and comedic musical trip through the human body narrated in large part by a sassy pickle, treated to an AMWAY-style sales pitch for "sexual aids," and ministered to by a female Jesus dressed only in tasseled pasties and a blood-stained pair of tidy-whities. The underwear was later raffled off for gas money.
"The last three shows in Colorado, when the pickle called the audience a dumb cunt, we got booed," said the emcee. "But you guys laughed. So I have a feeling this is going to be a good show."
