Saucy Star Wars strip show - sorry, burlesque - to tour Down Under

'Wookierotica', sexy stormtroopers and yes, gold bikini

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Disney's acquisition of all things Star Wars has some fans in a lather at the prospect of new films set in the Lucasverse.

Here at Vulture South, The Reg's Australian outpost, some are in a lather for an entirely different reason, namely the return of the revue Star Wars Burlesque: The Empire Strips Back.

The show's creator says the performance doesn't necessarily involve nudity, as he dislikes notions that burlesque always has to end up with a pile of smalls on the floor.

As the NSFW video below shows, the production will certainly leave you feeling rather more kindly disposed to storm troopers. You may also find out whether Jabba the Hutt bought Princess Leia just the one bikini.

The show is billed as a parody and is definitely not in canon. It's also proving hard to suppress: since debuting late last year, it has enjoyed several seasons around Australia. A new run of shows kicks off in early December at Sydney's Vanguard Theatre, just in time for Vulture South's Christmas party.

The show has spawned merchandise including aT-shirt and a NSFW 'Wookierotica' magazine.

There's even a burlesque Batman spin-off doing the rounds. ®
