SUPER HAPPY FUNTIME
“I think that I’ve watched the best night of burlesque and entertainment ever” — Allison Henthorn, City Examiner
Super Happy Funtime Burlesque is a Michigan based troupe that defies explanation. Calling itself ‘Burlesque’ for lack of a better term; SHFB is a genre spanning theatrical rock opera outfit, a sexy and bawdy musical comedy, a mix of Rocky Horror and Saturday Night Live, a night spent on mega doses of Codeine tied to the underside of a roller coaster while a circus monkey roots around in your pants for that missing peanut. SHFB is a nationally touring act, staging on average 175 productions a year, in its big red converted school bus, bringing the word of the new musical experience to America.
Some easily chalk it up as mere entertainment. But, at the end of the show, for every pair of hands that come together as result of being satisfactorily entertained, there is another whose clap is a thank you for provoking liberation of thought; a dissection of convention.” — Drew Storey, The Rapidian
