Broody Valentino, the “Teddy Bear With Claws,” is a Boylesque performer based in New York City. A graduate of the New York School of Burlesque, Broody's mixture of the classic and the irreverent has made him a fixture on the NY Boylesque scene. Balancing theatricality and camp has garnered him the epithet “The Telenovela of Burlesque.” which has allowed him to perform for the 2018 Life Ball in Vienna, Austria, headline at the 2019 Capitol Burlesque Expo in Ottawa, Canada, receive the Legends Award at the 2018 Burlypicks World Championship, and be crowned the reigning King of New Jersey Burlesque at the New Jersey Burlesque Festival. His other awards include the titles Best Overall, Master of Improv, and Master of Amazement at the first New Jersey Burlypicks Regional, the Golden Tassel for Best Boylesque at the 2017 Philadelphia Burlesque Awards, and The Beautiful Weirdo award at the 2017 Alterna-tease Neo-burlesque festival. A proud member of the Latinx Burlesque community, Broody enjoys challenging the concepts of masculinity and body image through the use of humor, sensuality, and style showing audiences that the big guys can sparkle with the best of them!

The New York Times described "West is tireless... and manages to always be in the moment, reacting to whatever everybody around him is doing without coming across as obnoxious." Tyler is a New York City-based artist and performer. He is originally from Tucson, Arizona where he graduated from The University of Arizona with a B.F.A. in Acting. Inspiration to become a professional clown happened when he saw a Cirque Du Soleil show in 7th grade. After he would research clowns on Youtube and practice by making funny faces at himself in the mirror. Since then he has studied under clown mentors like Philippe Gaulier, Aitor Basauri, David Shiner, Stefan Haves, Amy G, Julia Proctor, Eric Davis & Sophie Amieva. His solo show "The Wait" has toured many festivals and won several awards like "Best Story Telling" (London Fringe) & "Staff Pick Award" (Minnesota Fringe). There are no limits to all the things Tyler can do. He has traveled the world performing, hosting and creating material that has entertained countless audiences.
