2022 Moisture Festival: Opening March 17

Ernie Von Schmaltz is an internationally known drag-king persona embodying “male” burlesque. As “The Man, The Myth, The Mustache”, his absurd stereotyped portrayal of masculinity has been delighting and probably confusing audiences since 2005.   Highlights include performing and emceeing at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, headlining the Edmonton Burlesque festival, performing and emceeing at both IvaFiero Productions and the Seattle Boylesque Festivals.  Ernie is also a lead instructor at Miss Indigo Blue’s Academy of Burlesque, where he helps young masculine-identified types find their way.  Watch, enjoy and picture yourself in the back of his van.
