Thank god the holiday season doesn't have to be completely wholesome all the time. In fact, it can sometimes be a little silly, gaudy, and even randy. This is what you will most likely find at Le Cirque Rouge's Holiday Extravaganza. Last year the group performed to sold-out crowds at the controversial but popular Benefit for Kids with Fucked Up Parents at the 331 Club. This year's celebration will be less scandalous, but still loads of fun, with a hearty holiday mix of cabaret and burlesque. And in addition to sparkly ladies shimmying down to skivvies the old-fashioned way, there will also be funny vaudeville skits, dance performances, odd tricks, comedy, and seasonal songs. Best of all? This holiday gift of entertainment is free. (Photo by Lis Rock)
