It is a little bit naughty, but quite nice to watch. Denver has burlesque shows four out of seven days in the week and each one is unique variety show. Some have been running for many years and have the entertainment down to a science…a very sexy science. From classic moves to modern baring it all, to comic and vaudevillian performances, these shows are sexy, inspiring, and a rollicking good time!
