Fun time in Hollywood!

Monday Night Tease, Tonight!

Lili VonSchtupp’s Monday Night Tease!


Lili VonSchtupp

Lili VonSchtupp made her debut performance at the legendary Derby in Hollywood CA, on a starry Monday night in 2004 and never looked back.

Highlights of her career include competing at Miss Viva Las Vegas and performing at the legendary New York Burlesque Festival in ’06.

In 2007, Lili took the helm of LA’s longest running weekly burlesque show, and now produces the Monday Night Tease! at the 3 Clubs. You can still catch her performing around the California/Nevada area as well.

Her performance style has been described as a bit of Sophie Tucker, a bit of Mae West and whole lot of boobs, but the LA Times summed it up best: “She’s the foul-mouthed buxom godmother of LA Burlesque.”

Lili runs the prestigious burlesque academy, “Lili’s School for Wayward Girls,” a higher education facility helping ladies and gentlemen achieve their goals within the art of striptease.

Lili will be performing as well as producing the Scoundrels and Trollops night at Monday Night Tease! this coming Monday night.

 

 

The crowd is mixed and friendly, and welcoming.

It is a good show for couples as well as single ladies and men.

The atmosphere is fun and upbeat, and a maybe just a little raunchy…magic, music, comedy and near-naked ladies–what could be better?

It’s Hollywood Night Life in the 21st Century, people!

Van Tee won’t strip!


This is Phil Van Tee, an incredible entertainer. He is going to be appearing at the Monday Night Tease with Pop Haydn, but he won’t be taking off his clothes, which will be a relief to many and a disappointment to a few, probably very few…

Phil, like Pop, is a creature of another time, an expatriate of the early 20th Century marooned here in a strange time and place. He loves it here, though. Not only is the toilet paper better, but you can sell people a little bottle of water for four bucks! His love for the 21st Century is tempered by his feeling that ground has been lost that was dearly paid for by the working man.

This Tall Teller of Tales  (6′ 8″ !) has spent 25 years as a clean standup comedian in addition to his 30  years as a magician. That means he is more entertaining than most comedians and  funnier than almost all magicians. He will be performing for you as a musician.

He is a graduate of Ringling Brother’s Clown College, and is a wonderful singer song-writer with his heart in Old Time, folk, union and protest songs.

Phil has appeared on:

Reno 911
Showtime’s “Who’s Got  Jokes?”
The Man Show
Mad T. V.
A& E’s “Comedy On The  Road”
“The Latino Laugh Festival” (Si T. V.)
“Inside Joke” (Si T.V.) and several times on Nickelodeon!

Phil Van Tee will be appearing with Pop Haydn, Lili VonSchtupp, and Pop’s Tarts on Monday, October 24th at the Monday Night Tease at 3 Clubs in Hollywood.

The Monday Night Tease is the longest running traditional burlesque show in Hollywood. The show is produced and run by the fabulous, talented and sexy, and very, very naughty Lili VonSchtupp.

The crowd is mixed and friendly, and welcoming.

It is a good show for couples as well as single ladies and men.

The atmosphere is fun and upbeat, and a maybe just a little raunchy…magic, music, comedy and near-naked ladies–what could be better?
