To celebrate the return of the LAVADEMON (AHHHHHH!!!!!), I am promoting Democracy Burlesque's latest show HOT FOR TEACHER at Mary's Attic. Democracy Burlesque is this amazing little theatre company that specializes in political satire comedy sketches. We produce a quarterly variety show featuring sketch comedy, stand up comedy, live music, puppets, and, of course, family friendly burlesque acts! Oh, and we donate a large chunk of the proceeds to worthy Chicago causes. Nice!
This is my fourth time writing sketch comedy for Democracy Burlesque. Each show is organized around a politically pertinent theme. The first show I did with DB last summer was all about labor, jobs, unions, working, etc. The second show dealt with healthcare, and the third was an hour long radio special that parodied the conservative talk show establishment's idea of "the war on Christmas." That show was a lot fun. I wrote a sketch about Santa getting waterboarded at Guantanamo Bay Prison. I know. How funny am I, right?
This show's theme is education! From naughty students and scolding teachers to civic minded puppets and that cooky ol' prospector you went to school with, there is plenty to laugh about when you're laughing about learning! HOT FOR TEACHER has it all! Come see us at Mary's Attic in Andersonville at 7:30 pm May 4th and May 11th.

This show may feature a sketch set in an MFA fiction workshop. So all you Roosevelt students better watch out!
