Legendary producer and 'Burlesque Impresario' Chaz Royal said: "The World Burlesque Games 2013 is without doubt the world's greatest competition of international burlesque talent. After 7 years of producing London Burlesque Festival, it only made sense for us to run World Burlesque Games again after the success of the event we ran in 2012, in spirit of the Olympics. The WBG will now run annually in November outside of the regular London Burlesque Festival program. Starring the best in burlesque strip tease acts from around the globe, selected from over 300 submissions, this year's event is set to be even more glamorous. Participants will be competing for monetary and product prizes, endorsements and the coveted World Burlesque Games Crown in various categories."
The London audience is a mix of regular cabaret enthusiasts and curious newcomers, who appreciate the finest in burlesque performers as well as sheer glamour and tastefully risqué entertainment. Chaz Royal helps develop the most talented new and established performers, right through from the avant-garde to erotic, sexy circus artists, novelty acts with classic and new strip tease, exposing them to an international stage and the acclaim of diverse audiences. His events are full of colour, panache, excitement and simply the greatest displays of international burlesque talent on Earth.
