Gypsy Rose Lee

Gypsy Rose Lee

with guest host Jacq The Stripper

Special guest Jacq the Stripper joins Kaytlin Bailey to talk about American icon and patron saint of strippers, Gypsy Rose Lee. Gypsy was born into a multi generational family of scrappy independent women. After realizing she couldn’t support the family as a vaudeville performer, Lee turned to the more lucrative craft of burlesque, which she transformed with her wit and wisdom.

Like Jacq, Gypsy was a brilliant comedian and author in addition to being an accomplished strip tease performer. And like Kaytlin, she eventually was drawn toward leftie political activism. Jacq and Kaytlin also talk stage moms, madness, and the importance of laughing at yourself first.
