To describe an evening at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret on the 16th Street Mall as “something different to do downtown” would be an understatement. With a calendar of raunchy events, one to see is Naughty Pierre’s Burlesque and Comedy Extravaganza every Thursday. The show offers a line-up of acts including burlesque dancers, singing, magicians and yes, puppets — a-la William Shakespeare and George W. Bush, all interspersed by the comical eccentricities of Naughty Pierre. Sure, the phallic jokes, slapstick humor and cheekiness — pun intended — run amuck, but it is to be expected. And with cocktails in hand, the audience was consistently howling for more.
