Last night's tasteful (very much PG) burlesque extravaganza at the North Star, the Pretty Things Peep Show, had many highlights, but the capper, as always, was Peep Show founder go-go Amy and her remarkable flaming pasties.
Part quaint '20s-era burlesqueria, part traveling circus sideshow, Pretty Things features a raft of other performers such as the sword-swallowing Heather Holliday, The Midget of Mischief" Lil Miss Firefly, and the show's irascible host, Donnie Vomit. The entire gig was also live streamed by go-go Amy, who had a busy night of activities.
Fans of the show, and burlesque in general, are also encouraged to take go-go Amy's traveling Pin Up Class to learn how to be your own sassy model. Not to worry: Flaming pasties are for much more advanced, graduate-level students of the circus arts.
