Nasty Canasta

Nasty Canasta by Ben Trivett

Internationally-renowned artstar (and reigning Cheese Queen of Coney Island) Nasty Canasta is frequently hailed as a genius of the neo-burlesque scene. A "burlesque queen" (The NY Times), Runner Up at the 2010 Miss Exotic World Pageant, and "Brooklyn's greatest burlesque star" (The Brooklyn Paper), Nasty is an associate producer with Wasabassco, was host and producer of Naked Girls Reading NYC - "New York's Best Story Hour," (The Village Voice), and was the impresario behind Sweet & Nasty Burlesque and Pinchbottom Burlesque ("Best Burlesque in NYC" - NY Magazine, "Most Innovative" - Burlesque Hall of Fame). She is the winner of 10 Golden Pastie Awards from The New York Burlesque Festival, has been included multiple times on the 21st Century Burlesque “Top 50 Burlesque Performers” list, and in 2016 was honored as a "Legend of Nerdlesque" by the New York Nerdlesque Festival.

Nasty began her performance career as a stage actor, studying theatre and costume design at Brown University. In 2004 - after too many years of horribly embarrassing (though, fortunately, horribly-attended) off-off-off-Broadway shows - she discovered her true calling on the burlesque stage.

Now a full-time burlesque performer, producer and costumer, Nasty draws on her years of experience in the theatre to create acts and shows that combine tease and titillation, humor, spectacle and theatricality. She wrote and produced The Case of The Falling Starlet and The Speakeasy Stiff (burlesque radio murder mystery plays for the stage), Wasabassco's KONG, Stripper Macbeth, The Thing With 10,000 Pasties, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of The Scarlet Buttcheek and A 70's Christmas Carol, and co-stars in Chris Harder's Nasty Drew And That Harder Boy mysteries. She has been a featured performer at various burlesque festivals in the US and Canada; headlined the Montreal Bagel Burlesque Expo in 2015; toured eastern Canada with the Towers of Tease in the summer of 2016; and hosted the 2017 Vancouver International Burlesque Festival and the 2017 Nerdlesque Festival in New York City. In addition to her burlesque performances, she teaches private and group classes, writes Showgirl Detritus - a blog about performing, producing & creating - and spent the summer of 2010 as a snake charmer and contortionist with the world-famous Coney Island Circus Sideshow in Brooklyn, NY.

Nasty is best known for her 'burlesques on burlesque:' subtle and surprising twists on classic striptease such as her car-alarm fan dance, her "Unknown Stripper" act, and her award-winning ecdysiastical tribute to Dorian Gray, "The Portrait." Equally at home with classic tease and contemporary pop culture, her numbers range from the sublime to the silly, and have been a favorite with audiences around the world.
