Admission Info

Girls, Gags, and Giggles


Did you know that in the heyday of burlesque, the shows were just as much about the comedians as the dancing girls? "Girls, Gags, and Giggles" seeks to return burlesque to its roots with this fun, hilarious, and sexy show featuring an all-star cast of burlesque performers and stand-up comedians. We offer a "core cast" of burlesque performers, all of whom are the top "peelers" in Columbus. They are: Cherie Blondell, Honey Merlot, Pandora Foxx, Trulie Scrumptious, Eileen Galvin, Athena Nile, Bianca Coal, and Betty LeRoux. Our comedy lineup changes every month, and features the funniest comedians in Columbus and beyond. "Girls, Gags, and Giggles" is hosted by award-winning comedian and magician, Erik Tait.

Stars and Strips!


Stars and Strips! is our annual charity show that benefits militaries charities. In past years, SnS has raised thousands of dollars for Operation Homefront and the USO of Central and Southern Ohio. Taking place in July at The Garden Theater in the Short North district of Columbus, SnS is a themed burlesque and variety show that celebrates all things Americana, with a heavy focus on our nation's military.  2015 will see the first incarnation of Stars and Strips! as a scripted burlesque musical, featuring singing, dancing, variety performances, and of course, burlesque. This year, a portion of our ticket sales with by donated to Honor Flight Columbus (www.honorflightcolumbus.org).

Burlesque Trivia


It's a game! It's a show! It's a game/show! Not only that, it's "Burlesque Trivia"! Burlesque Trivia takes a traditional trivia game and turns it on its head. You and your team will be asked traditional trivia questions in areas of pop culture, history, science, or whatever else our host, comedian Nick Glaser can think up. If you win one of the six rounds, you get to pick from performer #1, #2, or #3 to perform for you and the entire Shrunken Head audience. Who will it be? What will you see? You'll have to play to find out! If you win the entire game, you will win a fabulous prize donated by our hosts, The Shrunken Head!
