Petite and sweet with a dirty streak a mile wide, Ray Ray Sunshine performs the hell out of some burlesque. She is the producer of Burlesco!, Chicago’s only monthly live band burlesque and variety show featuring the music of critically acclaimed Grit and the Double Knit. She is also a custom costume designer who’s innovative work can be seen on some of the biggest and brightest performers in the business.
Ray is also the brave assistant to her partner, Mark the Knife, and can frequently be seen having knives thrown around her body and clothing lashed off by a bull whip.

Featured performer at the 2015 Windy City Burlesque Festival.
Monthly featured performer at Burlesque at the 9 in Cleveland, OH.
