Often Russell can be found in a state of undress in front of a paying audience. Usually starting out with some Gentleman Juggling and eventually getting to his creative use of a hat rack.
In 2012, Russell won at the Tournament of Tease at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas making him the reigning King of Burlesque. Here is the video footage of that performance:
