It’s a stripper show without terrible thongs or extreme nudity.

The Comic Strippers are on tour and they’re coming to Prince Rupert for a one-night stand on May 28 at the Lester Centre of the Arts.

It’s a different kind of comedy, said Roman Danylo, one of the comedians in the show.

“It is a parody of a male stripper show where we play fake male strippers that have perhaps been in the business for far too long and now they’re demanding new respect in their lives by trying a different type of entertainment, with improv comedy,” he said.

For residents who have made it out to a Hook, Line and Snicker show — the improv team in the city — it’s a twist on some of the games that are played in improv. There will be a private table scene, a shower seen and something with ping pong balls that Danylo wouldn’t get into much detail on.

The stripper troupe have been performing their act steady for a couple of years. They’ve performed across the country, including Prince Rupert and they’ve gone to the U.S. and even the Adelaide Fringe Festival in Australia.

While the U.S. has Chippendales, and Australia has the Thunder From Down Under, “people seem to be enjoying the idea that we might be Canada’s ironic answer to this entire genre,” Danylo said. It’s a bit of a tongue and cheek version to stripper shows.

The comedic strippers are also improvisors at the Vancouver TheatreSports League. They encourage men to come watch their show as well.

“Our comedy bodies will make them look good. It’s a great show for anyone in the Prince Rupert area,” he said.

However, the show is for 19-years and older, and the show starts at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2506032
