Browncoat (n.):

  1. a nickname given to the Independent Faction in the Unification War from the Firefly universe. They were named Browncoats after the simple, brown dusters they wore as uniforms.
  2. a term applied to the Trekkie-like die-hard fans of the short-lived television series Firefly
  3. a member of the Ottawa based performance troupe Browncoats Burlesque

We are one of Canada’s only fully Nerdlesque Troupes! Based in Ottawa, and founded in 2010, we roam wherever the call may take us.

We are thoroughly committed to presenting shows that are full of sexy satire, winning wit, outrageous humour, epic nerdery, and just plain old fun! Browncoats Burlesque has a taste for every palate.

While we specialize in Nerdlesque, we do all forms of burlesque including vaudeville, classical, retro, modern, neo-classic, surrealist performance art…we joke 😉
