Naughty Pierre currently hosts several shows a week in Denver, Colorado,
from Burlesque shows to Stand Up Comedy nights. Prior to that, he did
comedy and film in New York City for a decade, and hoe-d it up in Los
Angeles for a cup of coffee. He was recently asked to emcee the big
International Burlesque festival in Las Vegas this June, and a couple
months ago, was paid to utter three lines for Episode Two, Season Four
of "Breaking Bad".
As the founder of the Gilded Cage Burlesk & Varieté, Vivian MirAnn has helped to bring the art of burlesque to a much wider audience in Albuquerque than ever before. Although she has been performing in burlesque for just under two years, it has become a driving force in her life. Vivian was recently awarded the title of First Runner-Up to the Queen of Burlesque in the Southern Fried Burlesque Pageant, held last month in Atlanta, Georgia. She has a full year of both local and out-of-state shows planned, and fully intends to bring the best of New Mexico to as many people as she can.
September Smith is New Mexico's own high-flying strip-teaser! She has been performing nationally since 2003 from NYC to San Francisco in fine theatres as well as sordid bars. She has performed her Aerial Burlesque (Lyra & Trapeze), as well as Partner Acrobatics with the likes of The National Tour of the Sex Worker’s Art Show, Wise Fool Circus, at Viva Las Vegas in Nevada & Madame Maraschino’s House of Burlesque in San Francisco to name a few. September revels in both aerial and ground burlesque acts. She is just as passionate about the beautiful as she is about the absurd. www.SeptemberSmith.com
Kitty Irreverent is one of the founding members of the neo-burlesque revolution in New Mexico. She first sharpened her claws in 2003 as a member of Lonely Hearts Burlesque. Audiences couldn't get enough of Kitty's quirky charm, and she couldn't get enough of the audiences. What started out as a one off endeavor has become a full-time passion for this lady of the bump and grind.
Today Kitty is one half of the dynamo production team that is Burque Burlesque, co-producing not only the hugely popular Vegas lounge inspired Tinis and Teasers quarterly shows, but also the longest running burlesque festival in the southwest, Southwest Burlesque Showcase.
When she's not bumping and grinding, Kitty can be found curled up in a chair with a good book about any number of naughty subjects, or sewing away on her next costume.
Vegas is a regular performer at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret in Denver, CO, and he is also produces magic and variety shows. From boylesque to musical comedy, he entertains audiences with ridiculous antics and sudden loss of clothing. He performed at the Gothic Theatre last year in the Colorado Burlesque Festival.
Cookie Fortune got her start in burlesque nearly a decade ago. What was meant to be a one time performance immediately got her hooked. Her style is quirky, humorous and always full of surprises.
