Batman and boobies go together like... Batman and Robin?That's the case here at The Tank in New York City thanks to the nerdy burlesque troupe Epic Win Burlesque. The troupe assembled in 2009 for a Dark Knight themed show called "Holy Sh*t, Batman!" and decided after hitting the realms of Ghostbusters, the "Star Debate: Wars versus Trek," violent films, and DC vs Marvel, they returned to Gotham for "Holy Sh*t, Batman Returns!"
Longtime friends Schaffer the Darklord and Nelson Lugo teamed up to produce and host the show once more, after having announced this will be Schaffer's last show. The nerdcore rapper brought the funny one last time, with help from his friend and a new third host, Schaffer's doppleganger, Schaffer the Puppet. Their skits in-between dancing girls included dressing as Hugo Strange and Scarecrow, Batman trivia (always corrected by the stalwart Mr. Pennyworth), and a rap song about Popeye sung by the Darklord and the Puppet versions of Schaffer together. They kept the audience laughing with their antics and reminded them that true Burlesque is about more than just pretty nearly naked girls. Of course, there was that, too. After kicking off with some go-go dancing by Stella Chu as Batgirl, the show people came to see began! official website, facebook, and twitter!
