DB has produced world-premiere political satire since 2006. With contributors and
performers from across Chicagoland, we produce comedy & variety shows that take on
the issues; education, health care, food, elections and more! Democracy Burlesque’s
mission remains to create riotous comedy while raising awareness, supplies and money
for a variety of Causes Célèbre: worthy nonprofit grassroots organizations. So far, we
have helped more than 50 groups raise much-needed cash and awareness, and
continue to do so during our 8th season.
