What's up with the watermelon?
The saturnine Mr Scratch (or just "Scratch" to his friends...) has been hanging around the burlesque world for 15 years or so now, bring sunshine and lollipops wherever he may go. A burlesque scholar and instructor, he is the founding chair of The Great Burlesque Exposition and the curator of The American Burlesque Collection. Teaching highlights include Burlycon, the Chicago and Ohio burlesque festivals, and the Boston Academy of Burlesque Education.
An frequent host and magician, Scratch most often works his magic backstage as the impresario for the award-winning BeauTease Burlesque.
