Episode 3 of I’m A Stripper concentrates on the Toronto-based troupe BoylesqueTO, who do a burlesque act. It feels a bit off topic. True, burlesque involves the removal of clothing on stage. But this episode also involves naked chicks and silly costumes and comedy skits and gender-bending and no one has a particularly toned body.
There is also lots of that condescending ‘blurring’ of naughty bits. Even though every nipple is covered with a pasty and every cock is hidden inside a sock, the broadcaster still blurs these parts. Really. When is television going to grow up and start treating its audience like adults?
Here’s looking forward to Episode 4 of I’m A Stripper.
