Burlesque was a popular form of live entertainment in the decades around the turn of the 19th century, consisting of various forms of humour and ribaldry. Several well-known comedians got their starts in the burlesque circuits of the USA: W.C. Fields, Abott and Costello, Milton Berle, Bob Hope. Burlesque may be better known for more or less titillating forms of dancing and strip tease by female performers though.

2021-02-27 Rerun commentary: Good old Sallah, always rescuing people when they least expect or want it!

I'm trying to remember how I did that text in the last panel. It looks like a pure Photoshop job, though it's the sort of thing that I would print out and physically include in the set.

Maybe I made the sign in Photoshop and printed it out... Nah. It really looks like straight Photoshop after the fact.
