The oddly adorable Vaudevillian
After his mama left him in a basket under the big top, Dickie Smalls was raised by circus folk, cut his teeth as a variety artist in Vaudeville and has since expanded into Boylesque.
Equally comfortable performing on his hands as he is on his feet, making music or performing silently as a mime, making things appear as well as magically making his clothes disappear before your very eyes.
A veritable conundrum of backwards-writing, ukulele-strumming, prat-falling, eccentric-dancing, fire-loving performer and that ain’t no balderdash! Dickie Smalls: The Song & Dance/Pants & No Pants Man!
Dickie Smalls is an international, award-winning performer whose titles include: “Most Creative” at the 2019 Midwest Burlesque Festival, “Best Narrative” at the 2019 Berlin Burlesque Week and the title of “Master of Improv” at the 2018 Burlypicks World Championships competition.
A veteran of over thirty festivals, Dickie will be headlining next year’s Midwest Burlesque Festival as well as continuing to share his unique brand of boylesque all around the world.
