{April 19, 2010}   Behind the Burly Q

From the 1840’s to the 1920’s burlesque shows celebrated life and comedy all over Britain and the United States. They lit up the stage with comedy acts filled with women in lush outfits. By the 1960’s it was no more. The glitz and glam was pushed aside. What happen to those alluring ladies? Behind the Burly Q looks behind the curtain, and into the lives of the show’s stars. Interviews with some of the women and a unique look into Alan Alda’s past highlight the memorizing and gruelling moments.

You may know Alan from the hit TV show M*A*S*H, were he stared as Hawkeye. He grew up behind the glamour with his father, the leading comedy man in the show. If you find Alan as funny as I do, I suggest reading his autobiography Never get your dog stuffed. It’s packed full of witty slapstick stories from his childhood and deep details about his family life.


Behind the Burly Q opens April 23rd, check it out.
