Reverend Tommy Gunn
Reverend Tommy Gunn
ALL THE WAY FROM LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, REVEREND TOMMY GUNN!!! Reverend Tommy Gunn is not simply your Minister of the macabre, parson to the phantasmagorical & self-styled object of your affections; your Reverend is also the mouthpiece for the morbid, vicar of victimization, apostle of the appalling & purveyor of the more dangerous arts - he is also an author, playwright, lecturer, historian, and entrepreneur! Founder & leader of the FreakShow Deluxe - Hollywood's own & ONLY carnival-style sideshow. Co-executive Producer of The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny - THE annual convention & conference of modern sideshow performers in the U.S - yearly in New Orleans.
Gunn began performing at the age of 5 with his parent's show. Then in 2001, after years of theatre, television, and film work all over the country - both performing & management - he founded the FreakShow Deluxe, pushing the company's move to Hollywood, CA in 2004 when he opened the Empire Amusement Hall. People started calling him the Best Talker on the West Coast in 2008, and it still holds true. He has appeared on nearly too many stages and shows to name in the past 15 years - but some include: The Full Throttle Saloon, the Discovery Channel, MTV, Sabado Gigante, and so much more.
There is no act your Reverend Tommy Gunn cannot do.
Tommy will even be teaching a workshop Friday afternoon, "This Business That We Call Show"!

A chance visit to Paris’ legendary Moulin Rouge at the tender age 12, surrounded by boobies and bubbly, thrust Sugar Vixen’s destiny in one sole glittery direction. Entering the realm of burlesque with 7 years of professional hip hop, jazz ballet and salsa dance training under her belt, Sugar’s saucy bump ’n’ grind, fiery energy and punk rock attitude set the stage ablaze.

Chola Magnolia
Chola Magnolia
Chola Magnolia is the curvy and pervy burly que dame of your dreams. Having been onstage for over 5 years, this chica can shimmy and shake and make your knees quake. She is blessed with a bouncy chest and there is no mistake this chola will leave you breathless. This Mexican beauty has graced the stages of the San Antonio Burlesque Fest, Texas burlesque Fest, The inaugural Latin Burlesque Fest, Black Widow's annual Spanksgiving and countless other groundbreaking fiestas throughout Texas. She grew up in the ghettos of San Anto, running barefoot in the calles while eating raspas and sour pickles. Once she realized her calling was not to be initiated into her local gang, this girl learned how to twirl and swirl and make your toes curl. Her gracious assets, latina sangre, and spitfire attitude can be seen in upbeat Tejano cumbias, fast paced psychobilly thrillers or slow and low erotic canciones. So hold onto your calzones, carbons
