Bazuka is one third of The Stage Door Johnnies, the 2011 Hall of Fame’s “World’s Best Group”, The Burlesque Innovation Guild’s “Artists of the Year, 2010”, and who are ranked among the World’s “Top 10” Performers by 21st Century Burlesque for the last three years.
Bazuka Joe is the sweet and charming Naughty Little cast member, also known as the “Asian Invasion” of burlesque… and if you think you like his crouching tiger, just wait until you see his hidden dragon! Bazuka has headlined as a soloist and with ‘The Stage Door Johnnies’, throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and soon Europe and Japan. Trained in contemporary dance, theater, and vault staff, he creates nostalgic, witty, and lively acts that are immediately accessible to every audience. With a retro-masculine, ‘boy-next-door’ persona, Bazuka takes everyday fantasy and childhood memories as inspiration for his repertoire.
Bazuka launched his new web series style talk show “Pillow Talk” which will get him in bed with the most talented burlesque and vaudeville performers from all corners of the world. Each episode showcases a different artist which Bazuka spends time with while headlining or guest performing in their city. At the end of the night, they hop into bed and chat, letting the audience in on some dirty little secrets!
What Makes You Naughty?
I’m not. I’m completely innocent, moral, and well-behaved. Although, I do lie.
