Come one, come all! The city of Houston impressed everyone last year with its growing art & culture scene and enriching entertainment, while 2016 is shaping up to be an even better year with more live entertainment and art shows.

On Jan. 22-23, The 2nd Annual Bayou City Burlesque and Circus Arts festival kicks off at Warehouse Live, and it’s another spectacular event that you literally cannot afford to miss. The festival is presented by award-winning burlesque performer Kiki Maroon, so we know without a doubt that this is fiery entertainment you won’t soon forget.

The BCBC festival kicks off the first night with the Lone Star Bizarre Texas Showcase, followed by the World Class Talent Worldwide Showcase the very next night. The shows are very versatile in entertainment, with jugglers and magicians to belly dancers and even lyra acrobatics! With over 40 entertainers booked from all over the country, you and your crew are bound to experience top notch talent right in front of your eyes. Some of the household names include contortionist burlesque dancer Leggy Lass Greenleaf, acrobatic duo Tansy and Her Ferocious Leeon, king of burlesque Matt Finish and we can’t forget to mention the sexy trapeze duo Smolderin’ Scully & Miss Malacious.

Prepare to be amazed with sideshow acts that’ll make your jaw drop, and of course a little striptease show to make your cheeks blush with anticipation.

“This festival is my gift to the city,” explained Kiki Maroon, “and I give the best gifts.” Tickets can be purchased at bcbcfestival.com. They range from an affordable $20 to a VIP exclusive pass for $75. To find out more about the upcoming festival, you can follow BCBC on Facebook and Twitter.
