A burlesque tribute to Archer, FX’s zany, sleazy spy-parody cartoon for grownups? Did somebody say sploosh?

A burlesque tribute to Archer, FX’s zany, sleazy spy-parody cartoon for grownups? Did somebody say sploosh? The Richmond Comedy Coalition is joining forces with Moxie LaBouche of Those Freaking Weirdos and quite a few other local burlesque luminaries to present Gummi Bears & Scotch. This hilarious and sexy salute to Sterling Archer and his unforgettable supporting cast takes place this Saturday at The Coalition Theater, and you need to be there!

Burlesque is the perfect medium to adapt a cartoon both laden with ridiculous escapades of espionage and brimming with awkward and bizarre sexual tension. Once the whole thing is brought to life by this cast of talented RVA burlesque stars, it’ll take on a whole new level of hotness! Featuring the evening’s MC, Ego Von Hubris, in the role of Sterling Archer, the cast will also feature GiGi Holliday as Lana Kane, Jonny Ram as Dr. Krieger, Ellie Quinn as Mallory Archer, Lily Liqueur as Pam Poovey, Dante The Inferno as Cyril Figgis, and stage kitten Vixen Vigor as Babou, the ocelot.

In-between burlesque performances, the Coalition Theater’s Agents Of Odin will present improv comedy sketches sure to delight. The evening should be just as funny–and three times as sexy–as an evening spent binge-watching Archer episodes on Netflix. So get out of your house and enjoy a real live burlesque/comedy team up full of action, adventure, and awkward one-liners at the Coalition Theater this Saturday!

Dying Because Of This: An Interview With Ryan Kent

Ryan Kent has always had a warm, calming presence for me. I met him when I was still very young. We were bartending at Sabai, a job that neither of us would be at for long. We established common interests in lyrics and poetry, and went out to parties a time or two. It...
