Tito Bonito Cuba Libre La Mentirita

"SCOUT'S HONOR"
(A.K.A. SPREAD EAGLE SCOUT)

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 also comes as a co-ed duet with icon Jessabelle Thunder.

"MY BIGGEST FANS"

This routine is a male take on traditional burlesque. It serves as a proper tribute to the legendary girl group, the Spice Girls. A fan dance and striptease that balances both comedic and sexy in a fun and vibrant routine.

 

The music is the instrumental of the Spice Girls' closing track on their sophomore album SpiceWorld, "The Lady Is A Vamp" and includes all of the reveals!

A tribute to the circus and the iconic Britney Spears. The routine first made its debut in August 2019 while a special edition, custom-tailored by Donna Hood for Tease If You Please's 6th Anniversary at the Palace Theatre. in November 2019. 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."

Tito Bonito Robin Batman
"ROBIN'S DREAM"

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 2019, Tito & his boylesque inspiration, Bazuka Joe, created a 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.

"GCPD"

What would it look like if the Joker did a burlesque routine? A tale of corruption told through the lens of a criminal. A slow burn tribute to the Clown Prince of Crime. Featuring nods to the great Jokers of the past including Cesar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Joaquin Phoenix, and Mark Hamill (sorry to Jared Leto)

 

This act features a very special surprise reveal at the end. Plus an extra end credits scene. Set to the music of Sade's "Is It A Crime" and Trina's "Pull Over".

"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 and performed 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.
