Super Happy Funtime Burlesque is a Michigan based troupe that defies explanation. Calling itself 'Burlesque' for lack of a better term&#59; 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.
