Bitch Sassidy loves burlesque. From the roar of the crowd, to backstage laughs, designing a new act, to producing a night to remember, if it’s burlesque, it’s Bitch. Provocative, powerful, and ready to pounce, this dancing poodle is a take-no-prisoners, no holds barred performer.
Raised and rambled on Canadian prairies, Bitch first strutted across the burlesque stage on Canada’s wet West coast in Vancouver, BC. She began her burlesque journey at Torlage Cabaret, the School of Tease, and debuted as a solo performer at the infamous Funky Winkerbeans with BoneRattle Talent before riding back into her hometown, Calgary.
Welcomed into a thriving community of Calgary artists, Bitch joined the neo-burlesque troupe, Peppurrmint Parlour. She has proudly performed in circus, theatre, film, on small stages, in massive rooms, at conventions, and private parties. Onstage or off, Bitch Sassidy sets the bar high for professionalism, and polish, demanding you come meet her at a cut above.
Establishing Cabaret Calgary Productions as the events company for cabaret entertainment has been a thrilling experience which she excels at, as can be witnessed by the seemingly unending resume of one of a kind entertainment she has helped produce. She is an idea machine with superb execution and follow through. It is Bitch’s dream to leave a legacy of opportunity, creation, education, and community through their immense efforts of building professional platforms for artists, partnerships with venues, and ever-lasting, outrageous memories with audiences.
