Alan Cumming was treated to a burlesque-themed 50th birthday party on Tuesday night (27.01.15).

The 'Good Wife' actor was thrown a surprise birthday bash at the burlesque supper club Duane Park in New York by his husband, graphic artist Grant Shaffer.

Attendees were treated to an eye-catching performance from burlesque star and self-anointed "variety vixen" Amber Ray, who "shook her tassels far and wide" to celebrate Alan's birthday, according to the New York Post newspaper.

Other entertainment at the club included a fire-eater and a sexy hula hoop artist, who performed her magic routine with 27 hoops at once.

The impressive guest list to the party included designer Cynthia Rowley, and Broadway star Jackie Hoffman, as well as actors Bonnie Wright and Anson Mount.

The burlesque-themed party comes shortly after Alan revealed he enjoys pretending to be a porn star to people who realise they've seen him before but can't quite place where he's from.

Cumming - who also starred in 'Smurfs 2' and the 'X-Men' franchise - explained: "Usually they know, but I love it if they don't. Sometimes I say, 'Oh, I'm an artist.'

"Then sometimes if people say, 'Where do I know you from?' I always say, 'Do you watch a lot of porn?' "
