Amanda Lynne and Vincent Mann talk burlesque with Our Ventura host, Frank James Malle.
Amanda Lynne is a model, actress, dancer and burlesque performer.
Vincent Mann is a playwrite and performer as well as the host and lead comic for Amanda’s show, Cabaretro Burlesque. He also is the writer, director and performer of a one-man show which will make you laugh and cry.
Amanda and Vincent discuss how performers don’t have to take off their clothes as part of the burlesque art, but unfortunately, burlesque has been appropriated by some people who wish to add class to a strip show, which has resulted in burlesque, itself, taking on an undeserved reputation.
Amanda notes that the idea of burlesque is actually about the tease and the thrill, as well as seeing the sparkles, the feathers, the glitz and the glamour. Burlesque includes the art of dancing, as well as comedy. Comedic burlesque integrates parody and intelligence.
They talk about the history and evolution of American burlesque.
Frank asks Amanda how she uses burlesque as a way to raise awareness for diabetes and to promote healthy living.
