Missoula’s favorite burlesque troupe, The Cigarette Girls will return to the Top Hat for The Sunday Nightcap on June 16, 2019.
Continuing to bring their special mix of glitter, glam, comedy, and whit, the Girls always have something new up their sleeve.
This time around, they’re bringing one very special guest with them — Cecil the Sad Clown!
Cecil was born into the Circus, Sideshow and Burlesque world; his mother being the Illustrated Lady dancing in the family’s traveling Circus Sideshow’s Hootchy-Cootchy tent. When she and his father tragically passed by being trampled by a charging rhinoceros on his and his twin’s thirteenth birthday, he was sent to live with their aunt, the Bearded Lady, a horrible woman. She put he and his twin to work immediately as Clowns, his twin, as equally as horrible made Cecil’s life a living hell.
At the age of eighteen he left for the States, slowly making a name for himself on Vaudeville stages. Winning awards for his Animal and Burlesque act, paying homage to his mother. Traveling around the world known as The Clown with the Frown known all over Town, Cecil the Sad Clown is definitely one to look out for, especially if you aren’t a fan of Clowns, he’ll change your mind.
The Cigarette Girls are excited to welcome him to Missoula, fresh off the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender, where he will be competing for Most Innovative!
As usual, The Sunday Nightcap is only $5 at the door, but you must be 21 or older to attend.
