"Where our charisma is matched only by our dexterity"
Initially, I suspected that this was an April Fool's joke - one of the ones that you wish were true. But this one actually is! D20 Burlesque, in their second year of nerdtastic fantasticool, has planned an entire show as a tribute to nerd icon Joss Whedon. D20 happens to be the premier burlesque group catering to the gamer community of New York City, and they perform monthly shows at the Parkside Lounge in Manhattan. Previous shows have included tributes to HP Lovecraft, zombies, computer and board games, and my favorite, "I Can Has Internet Memes?"
If you aren't in the NYC metro area, check out D20 Burlesque on youtube - several routines are posted and available (including 'Tron Striptease'). If you are, you're in for a very special evening (see above: TRON striptease.)
