Calling to mind a modern-day Mae West, Lucky DeLuxe tickles her audiences with a combination of sharp wit, audacious experience and flirtatious sensuality. Having successfully integrated burlesque routines into her standup stage show, this lovely lady brings a bevy of charisma, honesty and passion to every performance. She’s been described as both “a cross between June Cleaver and Columbia from Rocky Horror, with the vernacular of a stevedore.” (Dayton Daily News), and “a funny stripper.” (LA Weekly)

Lucky DeLuxe was instrumental in the resurgence of professional burlesque-based variety productions in Kansas City. From 2008 - 2010, she was the main emcee for the Kansas City branch of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, a burlesque life-drawing salon with branches across the world. In 2010, she created her first 1-woman show called “Cabaret DeLuxe”, uniquely blending her standup comedy with burlesque and live jazz, which ran for 11 months at Jardine's Jazz Club (Kansas City). Her second 1-woman show, “Getting Lucky”, was awarded the “Best Of Fringe” title for its venue, during its debut run at the 2011 Kansas City Fringe Festival, mentioned by name in Southwest Airline’s Spirit Magazine, and is currently being booked in several cities across the US. Her touring burlesque variety show, “Lucky’s DeLuxe Giggle-n-Grind" is catching the attention of comedy clubs and theaters nationwide, and has a homebase at the Hollywood Improv’s Comedy Lab. Currently living in Los Angeles, she is excited to continue touring and expanding the exposure (pun completely intended…) of the projects that she holds near and dear.
