Making Reality

You guys already know, from previous posts, that I ride for Brown Girls Burlesque. I love the satire and comedy in a lot of what they do but also their confidence and the fact that they embrace diversity, especially when it comes to body types. Last Saturday, I attended their newest show, Making Reality TV, a satire about the often tragic world of reality TV, and it was exciting, smart and unique. The well-conceived skits ranged from comical, to thought provoking, to tragic.

Check out some flicks but be warned, some are NSFW:

Guest performer Sister Selvah starred in The Next Sarah Baartman.

Initially, she was excited about objectifying herself for the sake of fame. It was all good until she realized she was being exploited and that the show wasn’t what she was promised it would be…and then she actually learned who Sarah Baartman was.

But the good news is, she came to her senses.

Here, we have Chicava HoneyChild as Ken-Ru (the offspring of Kenya Moore and RuPaul) who starts off as a lovely unique unicorn.

But then the man gets a hold of her and convinces her to become a dancing pony instead. He explains that a sex tape is the ultimate way to become a star. She tries to go through with it but has a change of heart mid filming, which  enrages the man and gets her banished to obscurity.

BGB even got a boy burlesque dancer in on the action. Here’s Jonny Porkpie doing his best in an audition that calls for duck hunters (you know the show lol).

Sister Selva was really funny as the bachelor and the bachelorette.

But, no matter how ridiculously thirsty people got in their quest for fame…

The man was defeated once everyone came to their senses, and Ken-Ru dashes to the rescue.

P.S. The photos don’t even begin to convey how dope the show was. I have video and I will try to get it edited soon. But int he meantime, Brown Girls Burlesque teaches classes. Visit www.browngirlsburlesque.com for more info.
