What is Nerdlesque?
The melding of nerdy pop culture and burlesque, nerdlesque encapsulates everything you wanted from your favorite literary, cinema, and comic book characters: more. The sacred rule 34 applies to nerdlesque: If it exists, a burlesque performer somewhere has referenced it in a striptease.

A combination of a comic-con and a burlesque festival, KCNF brings nerds of all shapes, sizes, and shades together to share their fandoms in the sexiest way possible. This festival is a shame-free zone and all are welcome to join in the events regardless of size, color, gender identity, or sexuality.
