The Geekenders are excited to bring their newest, nerdy production to the Rio Theatre on Friday, March 6. A MARVEL-OUS COMIC STRIP! is a burlesque show that celebrates the Marvel characters you know and love (and secretly Google sexy fan art of in your spare time) with energetic dancing, comedy, and cheeky satire created by artists as nerdy as you are.
The Geekenders’ popular nerdy cabarets combine the irreverence of the Muppets with the polish and showmanship of a Vegas showgirl revue. Some of Vancouver’s silliest and sassiest burlesque dancers will be entertaining you with all different characters from your favourite Marvel comics, movies, and cartoons for A MARVEL-OUS COMIC STRIP! So grab a friend and join us for the geeky, sexy, body-positive, energetic, reference-filled and SUPER HOT night out with the nerd community that you love.
