Beaver & Buttstuff
DC's Burlesque Buddy Cops!
Our Origin Story
Accounts vary, but to the best of anyone’s knowledge, Beaver and Buttstuff was born somewhere in a Facebook group chat in 2018.
The production duo comprises the unchecked id of both Delilah Dentata (Beaver) and Callie Pigeon (Buttstuff). (If you don’t “get” the name, it’s fine. It’ll hit you any day now. We’ll wait.)
With an artistic mission to create shows that exist at the center of a What?!-Why?! Venn diagram, Beaver and Buttstuff is DC’s premier source for Burlesque Nobody Asked For™.
The Village Voice: "Thanks, Beaver and Buttstuff, for continuing to do burlesque I can pray to."
Rolling Stone: "I got hit by a car, but I wouldn't miss a Beaver and Buttstuff joint."
The New York Times: "[Their] 9/11 act was very tasteful."
The Next Beaver and Buttstuff Joint
WE ARE PLANNING OUR 2024 SEASON... STAY TUNED
The show that started it all, for better or worse.
Affectionately nicknamed 2Con2Spiratease, this show focused on the creepiest of urban legends. This poster, designed by Bianca Dupree, is an absolutely a work of art.
The show that really leaned into how *gestures vaguely* everything is these days. With surprise appearances from the Unabomber and Q-Anon Shaman, it's a wonder Callie and Delilah haven't been canceled.
This is the sold-out burlesque show you get when you challenge yourself to make a burlesque show that will sell zero tickets. It was glorious. It will happen again.
If you didn't know Mambo No. 5 was dad music, you sure did after leaving what was yet another Beaver and Buttstuff opus.
(And check out that sweet Bridge Over Troubled Water tribute at the top.)
The third installment of Conspiratease (and perhaps the dumbest) proved that DC-area folks are absolute freaks who can't get enough of conspiracies. Callie and Delilah still aren't canceled, somehow.
