Burlesque was originally a term used to describe a type of comedic theatre which ridiculed more serious works. Later in the 1860's it developed into a term that referred to a comedy show that was often held in cabarets and clubs and involved a strip tease and scantily dressed woman. Burlesque was popular until about the 1940's when other style of dances and more dramatic sexy shows gained a following.
Bur Burlesque is back! It is seductive and tempting and paired with perfect food and wine! Yes Burlesque is at Seacliff Restaurant Wollongong as part of their fabulous themed dinner shows. Tomorrow night you too can be part of the awesome Burlesque show with a three course dinner and even a welcome cocktail!
Last month I headed out to Seacliff to check out what Burlesque was all about, to be honest I wasn't sure what it all meant. I was in for a treat! The MC for the night was Wollongong's very own Stu Macpherson who also runs the Wollongong Comedy club, he got the crowd laughing.
The first act was Charli who did a acrobatic burlesque act which was not only sexy but very skillful too! The crowd loved her, she was full of life and very flexible! Charli also teaches at Circus Monoxide and does an amazing circus dance act to beautiful caberet music.

The way the dinner works is between each course there is a show, with ample to time to chat and enjoy your meal between acts. Food was fabulous as always. I had the Salt and pepper squid to start, wild barramundi for main and a chocolate tart for dessert, so good!
This is a night out that lots of people will love! It is definitely one for big groups or just couples looking for something fun to do. The crowd last month was diverse and fun! I love the themed dinner nights, so much more interesting that just dinner, give it a go and kick off your long weekend with a bang!
