(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 (previously Desi Arnaz's "Babalu") Celia Cruz's "La Vida Es Un Carnaval" (& now Gloria Estefan's "Conga").
2018 Burlesque Hall of Fame "Best Boylesque" Nominee
2013 Burlypicks "Most Comedic"
"V IS FOR VOGUE"
Inspired by house and ballroom culture, drag, queerness, and the evolution of burlesque. This act made its debut in January of 2011 in Chicago. A mashup mixed by Tito which blends Madonna's "Vogue" with Lady GaGa's "Poker Face"; a slight commentary on appropriation.
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.
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 and made its debut in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2012. Set to "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry.
In August 2019, Tito and his boylesque inspiration, Bazuka Joe, created a magical duet for 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 children, 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.
"GEE, OFFICER FULANITO"
This act was first performed as a character in the hit live band cabaret show Marijuana Madness produced by Miss Marquez and Grassfed.
It eventually evolved into a neo-vaudeville act and the new version made its debut at the iconic Boulet Brothers' weekly queer party Queen Kong at Precinct in Downtown LA. It is set to the songs "Is It A Crime" by Sade and "Pull Over" by Trina.
A tribute to 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 Anniversary 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."
An act that was inspired from the magic that was created between Blanche Debris, Betsy Bottom Dollar, and Tito while hosting the 2019 Burlesque Hall of Fame Thursday night showcase. Betsy made these outfits to host the second set of the show and gifted them to Blanche and Tito. Therefore, an act had to be born and the song choice was inspired by Holly Carroll's performance of it at the Friday night Legends Burlesque Reunion.
The act is set to Barry Manilow's "Copacabana."
"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.
