Harden Reddy



Born in Munich, Germany and burlesque-raised by Mynx d’Meanor and the Fishnet Follies in Oakland, California, Harden Reddy is the nice guy next door that turns into your wildest, most whimsical fantasy once you dare to look.

In June 2016 he was awarded “Most Innovative” and “Best Boylesque” at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender and therefore bears the title “Mr. Exotic World” a.k.a. “King of Boylesque.”

After calling California his home for four years he’s now based in Munich, Germany once more.
