Russell Bruner Solo Burlesque

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:

In November of 2011, Russell was the subject of an article in Portland Monthly Magazine. Here is a behind-the-scenes slide show of the photo shoot for the article.

    What a hoot!
    So I can’t find an email but I just heard about this show from a friend & I’d like to put a solo in it! So I’m trying all avenues to get in touch – haven’t performed in Portland in ages. I am a modern dancer; would love to hear back! Have been performing dance since I was 8…which was quiite awhile ago – experienced – thanks!
