Who Are the Bottom Line Burlesque?

The Bottom Line Burlesque & Comedy Troupe is an all volunteer, community performance troupe based in Hillsborough, NC.  We align with non-profit groups and local causes to assist in their fund-raising efforts.  Our primary alignment is with the UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders.  We hold an annual fund-raising event for UNC CEED.  This event is to help boost awareness of Anorexia, Bulimia, Body Dysmorphia, and other disorders.  We also educate our audience about the goals and missions of UNC CEED. 

One of our Troupe Goals is to celebrate body acceptance and celebrate the uniqueness of every individual; not only within the Troupe, but also with our audiences and supporters.

The Bottom Line Burlesque & Comedy Troupe hosts several Marketing Missions throughout their performance year as well.  These Marketing Missions allow the Troupe to continue their sassy, but serious campaigns throughout central North Carolina.  

If you are interested in booking The Bottom Line Burlesque & Comedy Troupe to perform for your non-profit or if you are interested in one of our marketing missions, please contact Ruby Martini on our contact page.
