Chicago Burlesque Dancer Red Hot Annie

Drawing on over a decade of performance background, Red Hot Annie turned her attentions to burlesque in early 2008. Over 400 performances later, her award-winning blend of candid comedy, shameless sexuality, and character-driven storytelling has made her one of the most recognizable and visible faces in Chicago. Whether she's painting, sweeping a set of luxury feather fan through the air, or gleefully twirling a pair of tasseled pasties, Red Hot Annie's sure to make the wieners boil!

In July 2008, Red Hot Annie paired up with Dick Dijon to form Vaudezilla (voted Best Burlesque by Chicago Reader 2011 & 2014), a production company that has become a major force in Chicago by setting a new standard for burlesque variety shows. Red Hot Annie began teaching burlesque in 2009 and currently teaches basic, intermediate, and semi-private classes at her own Vaudezilla Studios. She also has been and remains one of the Executive Producers of the Windy City Burlesque Fest since its inception in 2010. Red Hot Annie is an ensemble member of Beast Women and director/choreographer with Lingerie Lyrique

Red Hot Annie's impact in Chicago is undeniable, as evidenced by her numerous interviews (TimeOut Chicago, The Chicago Reader) and appearances on Check Please, WGN radio, WCIU television. In addition to performing regularly for corporate clients including Harley-Davidson, Grey Goose, Hendrick's Gin, and more, she is a nationally-recognized performer, having been voted #34 in the Burlesque Top 50 for 2010 and won "Best Novelty" at Texas Burlesque Fest in 2012.

"There would be no show without the glorious Red Hot Annie doing her graceful and seductive signature striptease." - J. Scott Hill, Chicago Stage Review

"Annie's productions are gritty, abstract, and full of humor. Taking the basic idea of the striptease, she has evolved the concept into something fresh and created an open-minded space for unique expression." - Creative Filth, Chicago

"Learning that Annie has a theatre background really didn't come as much of a surprise. Many of her performances feel more like the avant garde theatre you might catch at The Neo-Futurists then what is typically expected from burlesque." - Creative Filth, Chicago

"[Red Hot Annie & Dick Dijon are] Chicago's power couple of bump-and-grind" - J. Scott Hill, Chicago Stage Review
