KiKi Maroon

KiKi Maroon is a stand-up comic, special events producer, and international award-winning burlesque clown. Her life on the road as a showgirl has given her a unique voice on stage. Combining stand-up comedy, storytelling, and cabaret, she has been called “a modern day Lucille Ball” (though Lucille never pulled a clown nose out of her panties). KiKi has charmed audiences across the U.S, South America, Europe, and Asia; winning her the titles of  2013 Burlesque Comedy Queen, 2015 People’s Choice at The International Queen Burlesque Festival (Milan, Italy), and the honor of being a judge at the 2018 Burlesque Hall of Fame (Las Vegas).

Based out of Las Vegas, KiKi is originally from Texas where she was named one of Houston’s “Most Colorful Celebrities” by The Houston Chronicle and included in “The 100 Most Creative People” by The Houston Press. In 2019 she held a residency at The House of Blues Houston and The House of Blues Dallas as the star of KiKi Maroon’s Burly Q Lounge. Looking like a showgirl and talking like a sailor, the host received rave reviews, regularly selling out it’s year long run.

After a public battle with addiction, KiKi launched a 15 episode podcast called Clown, Interrupted. An interview style show, the podcast focuses on artists in recovery and the life choices that led them to sobriety. The Houston Chronicle called Clown, Interrupted, “an hour’s worth of near-perfect rock ’n’ roll lifestyle conversation.” The show led to her TEDx talk, “The Beauty of Rock Bottom“, which chronicled her journey from alcoholic stripping clown to bump n’ grind burlesque super star. 

The pandemic brought live events to a screeching halt, but KiKi found new ways to share her whimsical world with the public. You can now watch virtual versions of her burlesque acts on YouTube, join her livestreams on Twitch, and listen to her new podcast, The KiKi Maroon Show, on Spotify.
