Founded in Toronto in 2008, BoylesqueTO is proud to be Canada's premiere all-male burlesque troupe. This talented group of dancers, actors, and performance artists has been busting their buns to put male nudity back on the legitimate stage where it belongs! A BoylesqueTO show is guaranteed to leave you hot under the collar, howling with laughter, and screaming for more!
Since their inception, the boys have really taken off (pun intended)! They've mounted dozens of sold out shows, performed at countless festivals, events, and parties around the world, and have been featured on television and in print. They have appeared at The Life Ball in Vienna; The Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas; The Feminist Porn Awards in Toronto; The New York and Vienna Boylesque Festivals, The Vancouver, Stockholm, Montreal, Paris, Toronto, Boston, and Chicago Burlesque Festivals; the Edmonton and Orlando Fringe Theatre Festivals; and Toronto and Ottawa Pride.
In 2014, they starred in Logo TV's documentary I'm A Stripper: Boylesque and they scandalized the nation two years before that on Canada's Got Talent. They've been covered in print and online at outlets such as The Toronto Star, Xtra, Details Magazine, Canadian Theatre Review, NOW Magazine, Metro, VUE Weekly, Edmonton Journal, Watermark, and many more. In 2018 they competed at the Burlesque Hall of Fame's 28th Annual Tournament of Tease in Las Vegas and won the coveted award of Most Comedic.
Now entering their 11th year (and counting!), BoylesqueTO can't wait to embark on another exhilarating tour season with stops in Ottawa, Kingston, Toronto, Sherbrooke, Montreal, the Just for Laughs Festival, the Orlando Fringe Festival, the Edmonton Fringe Festival, and more!
