July 28 & 29- Texas Queerlesque Festival

The mission of the Texas Queerlesque Festival is to unify, celebrate, and elevate Queer performers and to push the boundaries of Queerlesque as an art form. We aim to provide captivating showcases of exceptional talent, high-quality education, safe(r) social spaces, and networking opportunities for all members of the burlesque and performing arts communities.
Queerlesque is the space where burlesque and cabaret-style performing arts meet the wild, vibrant, culturally rich Queer community. Queerlesque shows are fabulous spectacles of awesomeness created by, for, and about the queer community, and aim to provide a safe and supportive space for performers of all gender identities, sexual orientations, expressions, and styles.

Aug 11- Lenny Bruce is Back!

CATCH ONE OF THE HOTTEST SHOWS IN DALLAS BEFORE IT GOES ON TOUR TO CHICAGO, LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK-TWO PERFORMANCES-ONE NIGHT ONLY

AUGUST 11-8:00pm and 11:00pm 

Lenny Bruce is Back is a one man solo piece of scripted theatre, primarily comedic in design and profiling iconic counterculture comic, Lenny Bruce. Award winning and critically acclaimed Dallas based stage and film actor, Joey Folsom, takes on the role of Lenny Bruce, who comes back from the dead to deliver the stand up set he never had the opportunity to give in life. Biographical, satirical and socially relevant, the show, through the format and feel of stand up, takes a look at the father of comedy as civil disobedience. In creating an authentic immersive experience for audiences into the world of Lenny Bruce, the show comes to Viva’s Lounge, as Bruce performed many of his most infamous sets at burlesque venues, and each performance will be opened by one of Dallas’ premiere burlesque performers, Vivienne Vermuth.
