The Lady Josephine

Ever wanted to have sex in the Chrysler Building?

Known as a “Tall Glass of Bad Ass”, The Lady Josephine is an award-winning burlesque performer, teacher and entrepreneur. Her burlesque performances are unrelenting explosions of high fashion and drama… dipped in Art Deco realness. She was chosen to compete for Miss Exotic World at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and voted in Canada’s top ten burlesque performers. Notable appearances include the Montreal International Jazz Festival and her role as Lili St Cyr in the 7 Finger’s production “Vice & Vertu”.

She is the co-founder and director of the Academie Arabesque Burlesque in Montreal, Canada.
