A Briefs History of Time

 

Review


I didn’t know I was sitting in an all-male burlesque show until I saw the first pair of butt cheeks. A troupe of four men in all manner of thongs danced their hearts out, running the thematic gamut from the classic showgirl striptease to a man in a onesie romancing a slice of pizza. It’s difficult to shake your butt at strangers and not come off as obnoxious, and Briefs never is. The spoken interludes can be at times, but it’s the sort of shlock that pairs well with self-aware vulgarity. A woman behind me brought two cobs of corn to the Garneau in a Ziploc and ate them as a snack. No handles either. She just barehanded that corn. A Briefs History of Time was somehow so bombastic as to distract me from that, and keep me wondering what manner of butt stuff might come next. -Lucas Provencher
