Big Burlesque’s Fat-Bottom Revue In
Eat You Alive Tour 2005

San Francisco--For the first time ever, the East Coast will be able to enjoy the bounty of bootie that is the Fat-Bottom Revue! Hailing from the legendary Barbary Coast of San Francisco, this exclusively plush-size, gender inclusive, multicultural cabaret has been WOW-ing audiences all over the U.S. and Canada, but this will be their very first tour of such East Coast hot spots as The Knitting Factory in NYC and the Milky Way in Boston. They’re thrilled to be showcasing the diversity of San Francisco for the East Coast to fall in love with. Forget those East Coast hurricanes - we`re hittin you like an EARTHQUAKE, San Francisco-style!

Look for them with different special guests in each town! You can even follow them from town to town on this ten-day tour-- and never see the same show twice!

Be sure to bring your folding money for some personal attention, and some sexy Big Burlesque merchandise to take home. Remember, you can always get more info from
