Chris Harder is a North Dakota raised, New York based male burlesque performer—think “Raunchy Romeo of Burlesque!” Harder has stripped and teased (and then some) around the world including stops in L.A., Key West, London, Berlin, Vienna, Paris, Brussels, Stockholm, and Amsterdam. Both sexy and humorous, Chris Harder’s burlesque is “beefcake with a twist,” parodying classic Americana references like the cowboy, the pizza delivery man, and the “Big Spender.”
