She’s known as “The Italian Stallionette” and one of the Neo-burlesque Queen of our time…
It’s with a huge pleasure that we announce that Angie Pontani will dazzle the stage as a headliner, for this year’s Montreal Burlesque Festival!
She’s one of the burlesque dancers who contributed to popularize Burlesque by performing worldwide for more than a decade.
Angie Pontani has a very pinup look which reminds us of Gypsee Rose Lee: Brunette, ecstatically sexy and always cheerful. But she has her own burlesque style, a mix between very classy and stylish reinforced with dancing abilities which make her acts so unique and spectacular.
Native from Brooklyn (New-York), she is a legitimate celebrity in NYC, where’s she started to perform with our dear Dirty Martini as a burlesque performer, but also as a genuine inhabitant of New-York. She’s been involved in the fight for Coney Island roller-coaster and has been rewarded with the Miss Cyclone 2007 title (as a wink for the historic roller coaster).
Throughout her career, she’s been rewarded with some of the most prestigious awards and highest recognitions in Burlesque. In 2008, she won the Miss Exotic World Title. The Year after, she’s been crowned Queen of Burlesque at the Burlesque Hall Fame in Las Vegas (Nevada).
Often listed as one of the world’s leading burlesque performers by multiple media outlets, she was also named Best International Touring Artist, by The Naked City/Alternative Media Group of Australia.
All those distinctions talk for themselves… No need to say that Angie Pontani is a masterpiece performer in the Burlesque Industry.
She’ll be part of the panel for the Election of Mister and Miss Montreal Burlesque 2017 on October 19th… Make sure to book your tickets!
