When Jessabelle Thunder takes the stage, look out! By day, she's a shy four-eyed self-proclaimed nerd; she leads a secret double life—the Clark Kent of the burlesque world. But once she hits the spotlight, a sultry vixen breaks loose and sets the audience aflame. The music comes up. It hits her in the heart. Makes her want to move. Her adrenalin rushes, and a sexy, flirtatious baby doll is set free. With no formal training in theater or dance, her free-flowing performances come straight from the heart. Audiences cheer, because who could resist?!
Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, this self-described wallflower took her first burlesque class back in 2009 and hasn’t stopped since. She quickly discovered a passion, and developed a talent, for burlesque, which has now become an integral part of her life. Since her debut she has performed on countless stages across California, in Colorado, Texas, Atlanta, New York and Las Vegas (to name a few). Internationally she has entertained audiences in Canada and London, thus far.
Voted one of LA's top 13 burlesque performers by Time Out Magazine, this fun, flirtatious dynamo has done so much, yet she has barely scratched the surface of her capabilities. There is a storm brewing and she’s bringing the Thunder!
