Tonya Kay, The Most Dangerous Woman in Hollywood, is a world renowned burlesque headliner, host and reigning Burlesque Queen (LA Neo Noir Film Festival).

A hard-bodied professional dancer and Second City-trained improv comedian, you can see her burlesque work on television’s Rosewood (FOX), The Fosters (Freeform), Friends With Benefits (TBS), Little Women LA (TLC) and America’s Got Talent with Howie Mandel (NBC).

Tonya Kay has toured Spain, South Africa, Japan and the British Isles. She is the creator and producer of Tonya Kay's Pinup Pole Show, a company member of The Lalas and headliner at EvoTease Burlesque Festival 2017.

Her theatre training and love of Vaudeville shapes each of her 40 developed solo acts, bringing an authentic spirit of retro-burlesque to life as a showgirl in her giant champagne glass, grinding sparks off her metal bikini cod piece, intimately bathing in her full size burlesque bathtub, tributing her idols Shirley Temple, Gypsy Rose Lee, Lucille Ball and Lili St Cyr or lighting her pretty little pasties on fire.

From classic glamour to comedy and danger, Tonya Kay is a master on stage with an intimate understanding of what it means to be a true showstopper.

Reviews

  • The barre was raised with Tonya Kay at Ultimate Jam Night
    - National Rock Review -
  • The stand-out dancer and star performer was Tonya Kay who does a power tool number with all the comedic timing and sexual innuendo possible - and brings some of the most classic and innovative ideas to her several acts. She has an amazing body that one works for, and it shows. Even if you are a diehard neo-burlesque or classic burlesque purist, you will love what you see in Tonya Kay
    - Frankie Tease Magazine -
  • Both in look and performance, she reminds me of Lucile Ball at her best. Sharp, witty, funny and engaging, she is like Carol Burnett in pasties.

Tonya Kay’s mastery of dance, specialty arts and stunts has sold out Madison Square Garden twice with the broken bones, burns and scars to prove it.

Her daredevil skills have been featured in STOMP (Broadway), De La Guarda (Las Vegas), The Muppets Movie (Disney), The Lone Ranger (Disney), recurring on Glee (FOX), The Voice (NBC) and America's Got Talent (NBC).

Performing side by side with icons Rhianna, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, Neil Patrick Harris, Howie Mandell and Conan O'Brien, Tonya Kay’s athletic prowess has earned her contract offers with Cirque du Soliel and Dragone.

Her physical specialties include:
* trained dance
* grinder girl

To Tonya Kay, movement is honesty and the body tells no lies.
