I've been performing with Ms. Tickle for over 10 years, and her quote in my handbook is one of my favorites:
"A burlesque number is a short theatrical piece that uses the human body and the processes of "the reveal" to communicate an idea or concept. Burlesque is recognition, kinship, livelihood, self-inquiry, struggle, and a million laughs."
