What the Funk?! An All POC Burlesque Tribute to Funk Music was conceived as a show idea in early 2018 after our founder. Mx. Pucks A’Plenty, thought about doing a classic burlesque number to a Stevie Wonder song, but realizing it wouldn't count as a classic era song choice. This got their wheels turning and What the Funk?! was born. On August 24, 2018 we kicked off two nights of two all POC casts at the historic Jewelbox Theatre in The Rendezvous in Seattle, Washington. Featuring our headliner both nights, spICE!, as well as featured performers such as the 2018 Queen of Roses/Oregon Burlesque Festival winner Nox Falls, and two of Portland's finest, Dahlia Kash and Honeydew La Roux , What the Funk?! was made up of powerhouse performers of color.
