Broody Valentino, the "Teddy Bear With Claws" is a Boylesque performer, puppet artist and Theatre educator based in the NY/NJ area. A recent graduate of the New York School of Burlesque, he can be seen performing on stages all over the east coast.

From the moment he made his debut in a student showcase at The Slipper Room, his burlesque career has been a glittery whirlwind! Broody's mixture of classic tropes and the irreverent have quickly made him a fixture in the NY Boylesque scene.

He is a proud member of The White Elephant Burlesque Society, and Philadelphia's Bearlesque troupe, and can be seen regularly stripping to his skivvies (or less) at the Historic Stonewall Inn with Homo Erectus Boylesque. Broody enjoys challenging the concepts of masculinity and body image through the use of humor, sexuality, and style showing audiences that the big guys can sparkle with the best of them.
