Putting the “Hump” in Humpday

The monthly burlesque nights that Burlycute was throwing at Bender’s Tavern over the past year or so have been a success — so much so that now Burlycute is moving from Bender’s to Bar Standard for (what else would you call it?) Humpday Burlesque. “I just feel like people are loving the shows so much, and they tell somebody to catch the next show — and it’s four weeks away,” says Burlycute maven and burlesque emcee extraordinaire Reyna Von Vett (aka Cora Vette). And there will be lots of new reasons to head out on Wednesdays, starting with tonight’s Cora Vette’s Humpday Burlesque Show Opening Night. “We’re trying to build a whole night,” Von Vett reveals. “We have the space, so why not see what we can get going?”

That means you’ll see a classic burlesque and jazz show, followed by a late-night cabaret, Cora Vette’s Naughty Bits, starting at 11 p.m. and featuring the Arvada Center’s David Nehls on piano while Von Vett sings some of the many (many!) vintage songs she’s dug up about sex, drugs and other naughty, uh, bits. And the rotating monthly themes are only going to get crazier: Burlycute is reprising last year’s Zombielesque show on October 19 and 26 with The Return of Zombielesque.

Tickets are $10, or $25 for VIP (buy four VIP tix and get the best table in the house plus a bottle of Nude vodka). But get there early so you don’t miss anything. Visit for tickets and information.
