Known as the Director of Junk in da Trunk, the Michelle Obama of Burlesque, Seattle’s Own Mxtress of Thiccness and ‘“The They Them Yas Queen of Burlesque”, Mx. Pucks A’Plenty is a roguish radical always ready to ride the stage. Spreading their black queer magic wherever they go, Pucks is always in control. As a plus size queer femme of color and a vocal member of the kink scene, Pucks knows their politics, body, and sex are always potent and radical.
Pucks has a dance background in jazz and ballet. Pucks took to dancing as soon as they could walk with their song of choice being Push It by Salt n Pepa at the age of two! They use their musicality and stage presence to grab hold of an audience and leave them on their knees wanting more. A graduate of Miss Indigo Blue’s Academy of Burlesque 101 and 202 programs in Seattle, Washington, Pucks works stages all over the Pacific Northwest, as a guest performed for Rock Candy Burlesque and Mischief: A Melanted Variety Show in Olympia, Washington, appearances in BookLover’s Burlesque and Dante` in Portland, Oregon, the Body Political in San Francisco, and has been an international headliner in Canada.
