Halloween month is in full swing! Here’s where you can find me next:
Oct 28 – Thriller Burlesque Workshop at Fit & Bendy in LA – 12:15-1:30 – Register
Learn the classic Thriller dance made famous by Michael Jackson and infuse it with classic burlesque moves. Please bring a shirt that you can take off and/or tear. #sexybeast
Oct 29 – Naked Ghouls Reading – 4201 N Ravenswood in Chicago – 8pm – Tickets
Frankenstein, Dracula, Demon trysts. Yes, that’s right. This event always gets me in the mood for Halloween. The only question is, what should I wear…? Oh right! Nothing!
Oct 31 – Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls at Untitled in Chicago – 9pm – Tickets
Imagine a club where those that scare go to PARTY! Think strip clubs on Sunset Strip. Think Fangtasia in True Blood. Think about not thinking too much and just come and have fun! We’ll have a fantastic show on stage and we’re featuring Nosferotika and the ChamPAIN room! This is THE place to be on Halloween! Costumes encouraged
October is kind of like burlesque Christmas. So many shows and opportunities for ghoulish adventures! Here’s what I have coming up this month (at least the ones I can tell you about):
October 17th – Pretty Funny at Three Clubs in Hollywood
This show features great stand up comedy and burlesque. Our comics this month are Selene Luna, Jaylin Eaves, and Jared Logan and our burlesque features myself, Olive Ozentatious and Tito Bonito. All hosted by the delightful Natasha Estrada! Get your tix here.
Then, on October 24th, immerse yourself in beats, sex, and fashion. I’m starting a new club dance event called XS:NDK (Excess in decay). We’ll have a DJ, go go dancers, grinders, pole dancers, and a shot of burlesque! Come dance with me 10pm – 2am at El Cid on Sunset. Tix here.
On October 28, I’ll be teaching my Thriller burlesque workshop at Fit and Bendy studios in LA. We’ll learn the classic Thriller choreography but burlesque style! Bring a loose fitting shirting or a shirt that you don’t mind ripping. Register here.
Then, I’m off to Chicago to round out this Halloween season at Untitled Supper Club.
On October 31st, we’ll be doing Halloween proper with Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls: Take an undead trip down the sunset strip. What if all your favorite Halloween ghouls met at a club house and you got to go? Think Fangtasia from True Blood. A monster hot spot! Our mission is not to scare, but to entice, to tantalize, to entertain. We’ll be doing a full club take over and will feature over 30 performers. This is an event not to be missed! If you miss it, you’ll certainly be saying ‘boo’. Get your tix now!
I’m currently half way through my European tour and I just found out that I was named one of ‘The Most Influential Burlesque Figures of the Decade’ by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine. I am so honored by this. It’s nice to be acknowledged for my work in this field. It was a really nice surprise today!
Right now, I am in Rome for some play time and then I will head to Bordeaux to teach and perform, then on to Paris for more play time, and my final stop will be Vienna for some shows. Then, I’m off to Vegas to perform at the Orleans in the Burlesque Hall of Fame weekender on June 3rd. Talk about culture shock! Vienna to Vegas! But, there is no rest for the wicked. I will be back in Chicago on June 7th. Here’s where you can find me:
June 7th – Untitled at 9pm
June 8th – Naked Girls Reading: Lunatics – Readings all about the love of the moon at Skylark Chess Society – 8pm
June 9th – Untitled at 9 and 10pm and Big Sexy Show at 11pm at the Comedy Bar
June 10th – Burlesque Workshop at Dovetail Studios – Boa Love at 2:15pm
Hope to see you in Chicago!
It’s my birthday month! The actual date is April 15th (yes, that’s a reminder to get your taxes done) but I will be celebrating on April 12th at Unbridled at Untitled. There’s no better way to celebrate my birthday than to have a show full of half naked people performing for me. Really, it’s a dream come true! The show is at 9pm and I plan on doing some things with cake…
Then, on April 14th, I’ll be teaching another workshop in Chicago. See the details below:
Chicago – April 14 – The Tease – 3:45-5pm – $25 – Register
2853 W Montrose Ave
Chicago, IL 60618
In ‘The Tease’, you will learn a full choreography that involves props. For this first Tease workshop, we’ll be working with a robe, garter band and bra. There will be no nudity in class, so you can wear all of these props over your clothing. It is recommended that you bring your own props. Heels are also recommended but optional. Register
And later, on April 14th, I’ll be at Big Sexy Show. The show starts at 11pm at the Comedy Bar and will end a little after midnight, so at that time, I’ll be officially turning 21! Tequila please! Tix
Hope to see you in April in the Windy City!
