Sexy Saturdays The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 19 2015

Get in the holiday spirit by watching performers in circus makeup crack raunchy jokes and take their clothes off, possibly while sporting Santa beards. Every weekend the Uptown Underground features a different lineup of holiday-themed cabaret and burlesque performances, courtesy of the Cabaret Project, Kiss Kiss Cabaret, and Pervesk’ Burlesk’, among others. Expect music and hammy acts—including a Bette Midler tribute if you go on the right night—and lots of inventive striptease from the tassel-twirling Kiss Kiss Coquettes. The latter are introduced by a rotating comic emcee whose modern stand-up patter (“You guys”) can seem at odds with the old-school ribaldry on offer. One ticket gets you into the whole evening, though midnight general admission is also available. —Andrew Lapin
