So called for his pork pie hat, Jonny Porkpie writes theatrical burlesque shows as part of his production company, Pinchbottom, as well as solo productions under the title “Porkpie International” and is the creator and host of the touring burlesque-tinged game show Grab My Junk, which has toured the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and England. His work has been touted in New York Magazine as the “best burlesque” in the city. He has of late been highlighted as a pivotal player in New York City's burlesque renaissance in media covering the phenomenon. Porkpie's claim that he is the Burlesque Mayor of New York City has recently been validated by the press. In 2010, New York Press named him New York's “Best Naked Impresario”.
