NYC, LA, and Chicago

First of all,  many thanks to the Toronto Burlesque Festival for including me in their show.  I had a great time performing, teaching, and seeing all the shows.  Congratulations!

This weekend, I’m heading to NYC to perform in the LAST shows at Corio’s called This is Burlesque.  I will be doing one show on July 31 and 2 shows on Aug. 1.  I will also be teaching at the New York School of Burlesque on Aug. 1.

After NYC, I’m heading to LA to open Lipshtick, a burlesque and stand up comedy show at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club.  The show opens Aug. 7 and 8 and then runs on the 15th, 22nd, and 29th.
