Every week, Red Hots Burlesque cements San Francisco's reputation for being more liberated than the rest of the country. Playfully mixing provocative raunch (a mask of George W. Bush covering up one performer's nether-region, for instance) with hilarious stand-up, Red Hots features a variety of body types and a fresh, female-positive attitude that nobody can argue with.
