A Succubus Burlesque Show…

Sometimes I wish that I would get information on shows and events that have Succubi or Succubi performers in them a bit earlier than I have been of late…

For example, I discovered this ad on my travels in the past week…

Now this was a show that was held in Toronto at the end of August… More interestingly, it was a burlesque show that had some of the best performers that are based in Toronto and the surrounding regions in it… And as you can see from the ad here, the show was called Dungeons and Damsels…

And what interests me is…

One of them appeared as a Succubus…

Now some people might think that since I didn’t see the show I couldn’t know that there was a Succubus in it, nor what she looked like…

Well, thanks to the performer in question who calls themselves Red Herring and YouTube…

I can.

And in case the embedding doesn’t work:


The first thing I want to say is that I love the mix of sexy and cute that her outfit is.. The heart on her tail is especially cute and I have to admit that I giggled when I saw it the first time… Her dancing is really amazing and I love the little touches of whimsy and fun she was placed into her art… The feathers are an especially fun touch that I think would have gone over really well at the show I am sure…

I also think the horns are really nice, and her corset just makes the whole ensemble fit together just so wonderfully… The stockings I am not quite as happy with, but the shoes are a nice touch as well…

For those that are interested, she has a website that you can find at, and I love the site name by the way: A Professional Distraction. She also has a blog that you can find here.

Please do have a look won’t you? She really is amazingly talented!

    Yes, it seems to be very fun. It was just a bit rushed for me, but that may have been the demands of the revue.

    That could very well be, but I do commend her on the performance a bunch…

    Thank you SO much for the feature! I’m really flattered that you managed to find this performance and said such nice things about it <3 I'm going to feature this post on my blog (featuring a feature!)

    I know of a few more local burlesquers who do succubus themed acts. Would you like links to their videos?

    I see you also read Richelle Mead <3

    James – It was rushed! That's a combination of it being the debut of this act, me attending a convention prior to the show (FanExpo, where I had a booth promoting my Star Trek vs Star Wars burlesque show) and me having the underpants sewed about five minutes before stage. I can't wait until I can perform this act again and polish it up <3 Good eye!

    My hubby and I wish that we did know about your performance earlier, we would have loved to be there and have a chance to talk to you about your art! Oh we both read all sorts of stuff on Succubi… It’s sort of an obsession for the two of us in a way…

    I’d love to know about other performers if you have the time to tell us about them and we’d love to feature them too!

    Best of luck with your art!!!
