A parody of burlesque? (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

spoof

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'a parody' is the first definition.

('spoof' can be a synonym of 'parody')

'burlesque?' is the second definition.

('spoof' can be a synonym of 'burlesque')

'of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for spoof that I've seen before include "take-off", "Cod", "Parody - hoax", "Hoax; parody", "Take-off", "Satirical imitation", "Parody - prank", "Send-up" and "Parody - hoaxing game".)
