Kitty Von Quim says...


This week at www.RedHotsBurlesque.comwe celebrate

With a tagline like "450 pounds of pure sizzling sex," it's no wonder Big Fannie Annie makes it high on our list of burlesque inspiration. Fannie Annie is the type of innovative gal that will whip up a stunning dress out of a velvet bedspread or swaddle herself in a shower curtain. She never let her bounteous curves and Amazonian height keep her in the corner, landing film credits in Miami Vice and Porky's. I wouldn't be surprised if Divine looked to her when seeking her femmespiration. Described by critics in her '70s and '80s heyday as "too much," Fannie Annie was known to pack a nightclub faster than the smaller gals. "I never think about being thin," said Annie to newspapers in 1977. "When you know you are money by being big, how could you want to be thin?" 



Come with your sense of humor, get ready to hoot and holler because Red Hots Burlesque brings you the "city's best" bump and grind at the "happiest hour"!

alotta_splash About our featured performer:


Lola Martinet is our featured performer for JANUARY! Catch her every single week in the month!
The Pi´┐Żata of Perversion, the Disco ball of Danger, the Chandelier of Chi-town, a Vegetable Patch of High-Flying Snatch, Lola Martinet is the last remaining example of the most dangerous technology that 1976 had to offer. Lola's cold-war-derived talents have served her foray into burlesque where she has appeared twice at the New York Burlesque Festival, five times at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, and every night in your dreams.

About our debut host:
"Helena Handbasket
began as a dancer and performer with the Oakland-based punk rock can-can troupe The Can-Cannibals from 2007-2009, when she ventured north to Olympia to form and direct one of the city's two burlesque troupes. In 2011, she returned to the Bay and continued her work as a dancer. She gradually realized that her tendency to be the loudest and most talkative person at a party-regardless of how intoxicated and/or generally unsavory its attendees might be-was not just a social liability, but also an artistic gift. She now sings and MC's at various events, including Vaudeville Unfurled, Rabbit Theater, and The Punk Rock Cabaret."
