Swing into 2023 with your favourite friendly neighbourhood web-slingers, Geekenders!
The Geekenders are excited to bring one of their most beloved superheroes to the Rio Theatre on Saturday, January 28. INTO THE STRIPPER-VERSE is a burlesque show that celebrates every version of that lovable photographer from Queens with energetic dancing, comedy, and cheeky satire created by artists just as nerdy as you are.
The Geekenders’ popular nerdy cabarets combine the irreverence of the Muppets with the polish and showmanship of a Vegas showgirl revue. Some of Vancouver’s silliest and sassiest burlesque dancers will be entertaining you with all different characters from your favourite Spider-Man comics, movies, and cartoons for INTO THE STRIPPER-VERSE!
So grab a friend and join us for the geeky, sexy, body-positive, energetic, reference-filled and super hot night out with the nerd community that you love!
