I like Star Wars. And I like boobs. I just. . .I just don’t think I’d like them together, y’know? Sort of a chocolate and beer, reggae and the Beatles kind of thing.

I wonder if they did any kind of routine based on C3PO’s nude scene from Episode I.

Wake me when we get a SW themed burlesque show that features both male and female storm troopers wearing improbably skimpy versions of Star Wars costumes.

Some one should tell Australia that the other 90% of the US likes Star Wars too :confused:

My first thought, and I swear this is what immediate popped into my brain when I saw the picture, was:

Aren’t you a little too sexy lady to be a stormtrooper?

Everyone knows stormtroopers never hit anything. This way their targets will be too distracted to hit them back, evening out the odds.

Poll: which is the superior pun name for a routine inspired by the orange-and-white droid?

  • DD-8
  • BooBie-8

Springtime for Vader and the Empire!
Winter for Alderaan and Hoth!

no, their targets will be trying to hit on them.

Man we need so much more of this kind of crazy, funny, silly stuff. I love people who think like this. My favorite professor in school said his wife loved Cherry Chocolate and Beer. He loved her for that (among other things) and I love people who are completely batshit nuts and wonderfully functional.
Who would you rather see, the Storm Strippers or mitch mc’conell?

A friend of mine saw this when it was in Sydney. Said it was awesome.

This show had a decent run at a theatre a few blocks from my old lab in Sydney. Never saw it; I had friends into burlesque at the time, but they were more on the amateur/queer side of things.

I wonder if this is a parody. Did they mention whether it’s a parody or not? I missed whether they said anything about it being a parody production.
