During my recent trip to the USA, I was delighted to be included in the line up for Bushwick Burlesque, no doubt one of New York’s most colourful and infamous burlesque nights, which specialises in the weird and unusual. Dodge the piles of garbage and try not to trip over the homeless and you’ll reach the Bushwick Bizarre. A cozy place …
