Miss Astrid has been called “the true weimar fraulein” by Mel Gordon, author of Voluptuous Panic with “Enough attitude to sink the Bismark”, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Arguably, the best Burlesque emcee in the US, she is known for her deadpan delivery, impeccable timing and razor sharp wit. She performed with the very first neo burlesque troupe, The Velvet Hammer Burlesque, 1996-present. You have read and heard about her via NPR, BBC, Time Magazine, and the New York Times. Besides having the first bicoastal burlesque show ever in NYC and San Francisco, Miss Astrid creator of The Va Va Voom Room 1997-present has performed all over the US including the New York Burlesque Festival and Miss Exotic World Pageant in Las Vegas, Stockholm, London, and Switzerland.
That’s how Miss Astrid’s bio reads….. and that is what I call some serious Burly chops … and you have 3, count them … 1, 2 ,3 opportunities to interact with her in Seattle, each opportunity features one aspect of varied talents as a performer or teacher.
