Clara Bodacious is a long-time Bay Area performer bringing wit, class, and a lot of sass to stages around the Bay. Known as the “Art Deco babe” and the “time-traveling tease” this pint-sized-powerhouse has been bringing her signature blend of classic glamour and physical comedy to the burlesque stages since 2012. After a lifetime of studying dancing and acting she finally found a home for her formal training, raunchy mind, and desire to undermine the patriarchy through liberated self-expression in the burlesque community. You can find her on stage with Red Hots Burlesque, Hubba Hubba Revue, and other shows throughout the San Francisco bay area. Check out her latest on Instagram and find more at clarabodacious.com
