Drawing on over a decade of performance background, Red Hot Annie turned her attentions to burlesque in early 2008. Over 360 performances later, her special blend of candid comedy, shameless sexuality, and character-driven storytelling has made her one of the most recognizable and visible faces in Chicago. Whether she's painting, sweeping a set of luxury feather fan through the air, or gleefully twirling a pair of tasseled pasties, Red Hot Annie's sure to make the wieners boil!

In July 2008, Red Hot Annie paired up with Dick Dijon to form Vaudezilla (voted Best Burlesque by Chicago Reader 2011), a production company that has become a major force in Chicago by redefining the burlesque bar show and setting a new standard for burlesque variety shows. Red Hot Annie began teaching burlesque in 2009 and currently teaches basic, intermediate, and semi-private classes at her own Vaudezilla Studios. She also serves as one of the Executive Producers of the Windy City Burlesque Fest since its inception in 2010.

Red Hot Annie’s impact in Chicago is undeniable, as evidenced by her numerous interviews (TimeOut Chicago, The Chicago Reader) and appearances on Check Please, WGN radio, WCIU television. She is a nationally-recognized performer, having been voted #34 in the Burlesque Top 50 for 2010.
