Kidd Crimson

Resident Burlesque Magician, Artist

Also known as “The Vaudevillian of Burlesque”, Kidd Crimson is a theater clown extraordinaire. When we was young he ran away to join the circus and now joins Black Label Burlesque. Performing with singers and dancers, magic makers to burlesque shakers he has learned a lot along the way. Full of personality on stage and in the streets, Kidd entertains wherever he goes. Performing magic, singing songs, and telling a good story (or two) are just some of the tools at his disposal, and charming audiences is his game.
