His foray into Burlesque began at the Paris Burlesque Festival 2012 where his opera singing handstand striptease left the Paris audiences gasping for more. Last year he wowed audiences in Canada at the Montreal Burlesque Festival 2016 with his sensational act “Burlesque at the Opera”.
He was also crowned “Best Male Performer” for the 2016 short and sweet festival for the hilarious accordion playing, striptease act – “A Man and his Organ”.
