(A.K.A. LA MENTIRITA)
Paying homage to Tito's Cuban heritage, this is a politically driven commentary on the benefit of immigration; specifically of Cubans escaping the Castro regime into the US during the 1960s. A story of hope and a celebration of freedom. Songs used in this routine are Desi Arnaz's "Babalu", Celia Cruz's "La Vida Es Un Carnaval", and Gloria Estefan's "Conga".
2018 Burlesque Hall of Fame "Best Boylesque" Nominee
2013 Burlypicks "Most Comedic" Winner
This routine is an ode to the Spice Girls and traditional burlesque acts; performed as a man. This fan dance and striptease is both comedic and sexy.
The music is the instrumental of the Spice Girls' vaudeville tribute "The Lady Is A Vamp" and includes all of the tricks! This act can also be referred to as "The Cuban Missile Crisis".
A character first inspired by burlesque icon Hot Toddy in 2012, when the Boy Scouts of America still had a misguided opinion on homosexuals, this routine eventually saw the acceptance of not only gays in the Boy Scouts but also girls! Set to Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda", this act is also referred to as "Spread Eagle Scout".
2017 Burlesque Hall of Fame "Most Comedic" Winner
Inspired by Tito's undying love for Batman, this routine is a very queer parody of the 1960s Boy Wonder, Robin. It has been performed in several burlesque festivals. Set to "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry.
In August of 2019, Tito and his boylesque inspiration, Bazuka Joe, created a magical duet of the dynamic duo during DTLA Proud. The act is set to the song "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" from the film Dirty Dancing.
"THE TIN WOODSMAN"
As it was for many, The Wizard of Oz was Tito's first favorite film. He was re-enacting scenes before he could even speak, especially the Tin Man's dance. Inevitably, this routine was created for the perfect occasion; as the first male burlesque act in the history of Devil's Playground Burlesque for their Wicked Oz show in Hollywood (2016). It has since been showcased at the Seattle Boylesque Festival & at the Boulet Brothers' Queen Kong show in DTLA. The act is set to the song "Midnight City" by M83.
A tribute to the circus and the iconic Britney Spears. The routine first made its debut in San Diego at the Ooh La La Revue on August 2019. A special grand edition was custom-tailored by Donna Hood for Tease If You Please's 6th Anni-versary at the Palace Theatre.
As the ringmaster of this one ring cirque du so gay, Tito teases and taunts with props galore. Dancing and making his way out of his pants and into your hearts. This act is set to the music of Britney Spears' "Circus."
"V IS FOR VOGUE"
Inspired by ballroom culture, drag, queerness, and the evolution of burlesque. This act made its debut in January of 2011 in Chicago and is a mashup (mixed by Tito) which blends Madonna's "Vogue" with Lady GaGa's "Poker Face".
It has been performed internationally as well as at several burlesque festivals including the 2011 Windy City Burlesque Festival, 2012 ABS Fest in Asheville, NC, 2014 New York Boylesque Festival, 2017 Toronto Burlesque Festival, and the 2020 Bourbontown Burlesque Festival in Louisville, KY.
"MARIO & LUIGI"
(DUET WITH NIKITA BITCH PROJECT)
You'll never look at the Super Mario Bros the same way again after you see our take on this '90s video game friendship. A fun and creative duet with the brilliant Nikita Bitch Project. Set to the music of TLC ("What About Your Friends") & MC Hammer ("Can't Touch This"), you can watch the entire creative process on Cuban Missile Series Season 2 Episode 6.
