Jo King has spent over 30 years in the burlesque dancing biz. Including being our very own burlesque guru. We even have a feel-good monologue dedicated to her influence on the genre. In the spring 2013 run of the Burlexe show it was performed by the woman herself. Not to mention Jo King’s burlesque dancing on our stage.

She’s also the first Brit to be inducted into the Burlesque Hall of Fame. To mark her 30 years she performed at the “Legends” night for the Burlesque Hall of Fame’s 52nd Annual Reunion Showcase in Las Vegas. Needless to say we love some Goodtime Mama Jojo wisdom.
