I do seem to have very female-heavy audiences and fans as well, which is really fun for me. It's an outlet from working a 9-to-5 day job for the last 10 years. Back in college, I got dragged to an amateur night at a local strip club in the most classic scenario you could imagine of two broke college girls trying to earn some extra money. In , I was introduced to burlesque. It's so irrational and silly. I told them I had several of my own full shows, some of which had won awards, and they just did not care. It's not always consistent.

Very rarely do I feel like I make a significant amount of money over what any other feature showgirl might make.

I just dove right in, put myself next to the best, and did my shows the way they did. I will never take a booking when I know they just want me to be the token midget, like dressing up as a leprechaun. You get to control what kind of shows you do while also traveling the country to places you may not have otherwise gone. I think the women find it empowering and they enjoy the show aspect of it with the heavy costuming.
