Jamie and Daniel TAKE IT OFF

Burlesque mixes things up by holding the reading in the bar. Variety is the spice of life.

Lolita tends bar

Jamie Gaughran-Perez and his robot friend, Jon Lee

Jamie opens his package -- naughty naughty naughty!!! -- but what's inside?

The audience recoils in fear of what may be unleased --

-- CROTCH SOCKS!!! Gilda makes a new puppet friend -- and Jamie earn $10 on the auction block

Another satisfied Burlesque audience winner

Daniel Nester plays it coy

and teases the audience with more trouser sock mayhem

but in the end he sheds his shirt

for $40 -- close to beating the Burlesque record, but for now Kim Addonizio remains Burlesque Queen -- sorry Dan, you'll have to settle for "King"

Another memorable Burlesque audience
