That’s right. I am totally nerding it up this Friday. I am sure this is going to be absolutely hilarious. Are C3P0 and Spock really going to make out? I’m going to the Friday show, but there are shows Thursday through Saturday. Dates and times of the shows can be found here. Just FYI, if you buy online it’s $15 plus service charge, which comes to about $18 so you’re better off just buying tickets at the door unless you’re afraid this is going to sell out. Which is very possible given its feature as Time Out New York’s Critic’s Pick.

The Star Debate: Trek vs. Wars


The geeks of EW! will clash against one another in civil war to settle one of the most impassioned nerd arguments of our time: Which science fiction franchise is superior, Star Trek or Star Wars? Leading the arguments for Team Trek will be vaudevillian Nelson Lugo, with “evidence” provided by Trekkie hotties Bonnie Voy’age, Lefty Lucy, Miss Mary Cyn and special guest Fem Appeal. Arguing on behalf of Star Wars will be nerd rapper Schaffer the Darklord and his team of sultry Siths BB Heart, Victoria Privates, Magdalena Fox and special guest Rosey La Rouge. Since our hosts will be playing the parts of opposing counsel, our audience will play the part of jury. Indeed, the “winner” will be determined by your vote.

EPIC WIN Burlesque presents “The Star Debate: Trek vs. Wars.” This sexy symposium will settle the great nerd argument once and for all. Phasers will clash with lightsabers. Klingons will battle Stormtroopers. Tribbles will wrestle Ewoks. And although there can be only one victor, all of the nerds in attendance will unite and rejoice in the majestic spectacle of space boobs. The battle has begun.

Two costumed nerds passionately argue the superiority of their favorite science fiction franchises, with sexy “evidence” provided by superstars of the NYC burlesque scene.
