ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Paco Fish thrives on duality. He is a dynamic performer of spoken and physical comedy, burlesque, stilt walking, clown, mime, and a variety of other media. Most of Paco's characters exist in multiple forms and his acts are visual representations of the transitions between these coexisting identities.
Whether playing a freshwater turtle in forbidden saltwater love, a tramp with a deal with the devil, or the whole history of modern France, Paco dismantles assumptions and defies convention with humor and passion. He is the founder of Baltimore's Sticky Buns Burlesque and currently holds the titles, "King of Southern Exposure," "King of Carolina Sweet Tease," and "Most Humorous" from both the Great Burlesque Exposition and The Carolina Burlesque Festival.
"The Burlesque Vanguard Tour" is a year-long, international burlesque tour organized by boylesquer, Paco Fish. The 52-week tour will be spent living in a minivan, performing, and teaching burlesque in all 48 contiguous United States, the District of Columbia, and 3 Canadian provinces. Throughout the journey, Paco will be joining local performers for a different live entertainment experience each night, and documenting his adventures at
