Well, this was an utterly pointless filler of an update. Did we really need two panels of Chloe shortening her hair to look like Teddy in order to gain access to the club when we've seen her accomplish a glamor change in one panel in previous strips?
I also really hate how much of an idiot this update makes Chloe look. The fact it took her to ogle her own breasts on a marquee to realize that Teddy is her doppleganger is just insulting to her intelligence (but, hey - got to get that gratuitous booby shot in every update, right?). The fact she has to ask if Candy works at the club is also a stupid question, because why would there be a marquee advertising a specific dancer if she wasn't employed there?

Besides now that Teddi is back home there's no need to continue stripping aside from the extra income so if Chloe steals the job it's not a significant loss.
To us, as the readers, and Chloe - it wouldn't be. But given how much of a self centered dimwit Teddy has been since his impromptu gender swap, he'd probably want to keep his job at the strip club and become enraged when it becomes apparent that Chloe has 'stolen' it from him right from under his nose.

Wow, letting a succubus into a strip club is akin to letting a weasel into a chicken coop.
At least she'll be well fed.

Because the joke is that he's brawn, not brains. It's not a race stereotype, it's a bouncer stereotype. He's supposed to be dumb enough to let her in even though she said something strange. It's not like the club is high class.
Not all bouncers are all brawn/no brain, though.
Personally speaking, the dialect in this strip doesn't read as the bouncer being slow witted; it comes off as stereotypical 'ghetto' speak; which, yeah - coming out of the mouth of a black character is distinctly insulting.

Well thats amsuing. Going to get some pocket money. AND more importantly...
She wants to find out about this side of his life she knows nothing about.
One can only hope. But given how Chloe seems to have become an idiot, as well - chances are, if she finds out what Teddy's been up to over the last few weeks, it'll be by accident; and not via her own conscious snooping.
Please, don't come to me expecting me to fix your problems.
