Hurly Burly Burlesque Gives Magic Mike a Run For Its Money (Video)
Warning: Video is NSFW.
Imagine big, burly men thrusting their hips on stage underneath bright florescent lights. The shirt buttons pop and a chest full of hair is revealed. The Velcro on the handmade police-inspired costume snaps off and BOOM: a pair of boxer-briefs.
Dollar bills start flying.
No, it's not a scene from the upcoming Magic Mike 2, but rather a burlesque striptease by a bunch of real men who were inspired by the original Channing Tatum film. Fun fact: the same day Magic Mike premiered in theaters on June 29, 2012 was the first ever performance of the Hurly Burly troupe.

Though the shimmies and shakers of Hurly Burly reside in the Fort Lauderdale area, some of the bearded -- and not so bearded -- men came out to Gramps during their "Hurly Burly Makes a Porno" dance tour to show Miami what it was missing. The traveling troupe welcomes dudes of all shapes, sizes, and kinks. Who doesn't love a little variety? Check out our video as proof.
