Pre-Show Warm Up Act
At America's Favorite Burlesque Game Show we always warm up the audience before we begin our television show. Watch as the audience gets to pick a curtain to reveal the first act of the evening. Will they see a great burlesque act, or something less than fabulous? Will they choose 'This' or 'That'?
Your host, "The Great Fredini" lets the audience see what's behind "That" curtain: "Miss Bunny Luv" and a box of chocolate...
An example of a fabulous burlesque act that contestants on "This or That!" will have a chance to win, Miss Bunny Luv is presented here to 'warm up' the theater audience.
Welcome to America's favorite Burlesque Game Show, "This or That!" In this segment, your hosts, "the Great Fredini" and "Julie Atlas Muz" show you how the game is played. Meet tonight's contestants, Joe and Anastasia, freshly picked from our "live theater" audience. See Joe & Anastasia compete in "The Blow Tube Challenge".
In the next segment of America's Favorite Burlesque Game Show, "This or That!", contestants Joe & Anastasia, are invited to "Slip into something more comfortable".
