Taboo In Review: 2012 = Nude Year

Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society had a nice long break from the last Taboo Revue Burlesque Variety Show, we felt obligated to show Vancouver how we kick-off 2012!


We had a lot of time to think about how we were going to captivate the crowd at the WISE Hall and well, we delivered a winning recipe for an entertaining night.


The night began with a classic Screaming Chicken trio, the Bananas. VaVa Vunderbust, Joanie Gyoza, and April O’Peel brought back a number that united childlike innocence with gender-bending three-way (Together! At last!).

The grand Masters of Ceremonies, Connie Lingus and Evil Bastard, showed everyone how they get down with their bad selves and it was VERY revealing!

Connie Lingus is not only a cunning MC, she is also a very talented dancer. She performed a fun number that we all (I apologize for the what I am going to say next) flip our lids for! (High Five!) In all seriousness it is a delight to see her doing more than hosting for the Taboo Revue. Thanks for the fun number Connie!

This next solo can be summarized in one word: SEXY! The VanDolls super sultry, Scarlet Delirium performed an elegant fan dance for the lucky crowd. Those fans weren't the only things that were blue after that number ;)

Speaking of the VanDolls, they treated us all to a sneak peak to their smashing success of a show, Video Games Burlesque: PEW! PEW! which was at the Commercial Drive Legion on February 10th. These 9 cuties poured a lot of energy and love into their production and we are so proud here at Screaming Chicken! Get to know them a little better by visiting their website.

Take the Batman theme song, give a loungey feel and together gives you the ultimate crime-fighting, go-go dancer. April O'Peel is the dark knight... or some version of it...

Another one of Screaming Chicken's ringmasters, Violet Femme take Taboo Revue to the circus by showing off how creatively she can contort her body and it looked hot!

Melody Mangler once again outdoes herself by creating another spectacle she calls a costume. The pictures are going to have to do all the talking for you to even conceptualize the details that went into this costume. Melody's creativity is endless and it really shows through every costume she makes. Absolutely stunning!

Ohhh man..... THIS number... So lets be real here... This is number is insanely hot! Fantasies that people didn’t even know they had were realized on stage with the Razzle Tassel Tease Show's most daring and most baring number. With that in mind I told myself to only put the hot pictures up which was a fast-failing strategy because they were all hot. So I closed my eyes and pointed to a picture and this is what I picked for you:

This photo is self-serving as I feel that Violet Femme may have one of the best booties in all the land and I am forever in Greg McKinnon’s debt for capturing this image.

The hot-aggressive numbers continued with smoking solos by Calamity Kate, Sweet Sashay, and the Queen of Pain, Mama Fortuna.

The fetish feel continues with this group number loaded with kinky cuties featuring Bobbi Whiskey, Precious Metal, Rita Mortis, and Pocket Venus.

More than just a gigolo, Hunter S. Johnson shows us that he can be gentlemen. Voodoo Pixie’s alter ego stole the spot-light with her latest drag king number.

Screaming Chicken proudly presented the grandest of all finales, their submission to one of burlesque's biggest competitions, the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas. The time we dedicated in rehearsing really showed in how well this number came together and we were proud to share this with our faithful audience! A big thank you to April O’Peel and Melody Mangler who created this beautiful piece!
