Sweet n Nasty Burlesque keeps the British end up

sweet and nasty burlesqueBefore there was an America; before there was a New York City; before there was even a Williamsburg ... there was an England. On Monday, June 29 at 10pm, Sweet & Nasty Burlesque presents THE SECRET POLICEMAN'S BALL, a tassel-twirling celebration of all things British, at the New Monday Night Burlesque.

"Finally, an excuse to tell all my naughty Prime Minister jokes!" enthuses host and producer Nasty Canasta. A self-confessed "pretentious Anglophile," Canasta has assembled an all-star cast from across the country - and across the pond - to honour the British Isles: THE SECRET POLICEMAN'S BALL will feature local burlesque celebrities as well as special guests direct from San Francisco (the 'Wales of the West'), London, and Manchester, England. "It will be a glamourous and colourful evening," promises Canasta, "a veritable fortnight of entertainment packed into just a few metric hours - and all for mere shillings!"

Since 2006, Sweet and Nasty has been adding its own unique mix of glam camp, historical fact, and blatant lies to the New York burlesque scene, and currently appears on the last Monday of every month at Public Assembly as part of The New Monday Night Burlesque. Their June spectacular, THE SECRET POLICEMAN'S BALL, is the centrepiece of a jam-packed night of burlesque entertainment that begins at 9pm and continues until Tuesday morning. As a special offer, show your valid UK passport at the door for 2-for-1 admission!

Local favourites Clams Casino, Legs Malone, Tigger!, special guests Bella Besame (Manchester, England), The Flying Fox (San Francisco), Mat Fraser (London) and host Dame Nasty Canasta, O.B.E., will kick off their knickers and prove that the sun never sets on the British Empire at THE SECRET POLICEMAN'S BALL.

Monday, June 29 @ 10pm
Public Assembly, 70 N. 6th St., Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Admission: $10, or 2-for-1 admission with a valid UK passport
