Alexis Graber, aka Trixie Minx, is a burlesque performer based in New Orleans. She was raised as a “nice Jewish girl” in Miami where she studied ballet extensively. Minx may not have bloomed into a prima ballerina, but her technique and grace is witnessed heavily in her acclaimed burlesque numbers.
Although known for her comical striptease, Minx inspires more than a few laughs. The dancer has performed on film and television, alongside musical acts, and at festivals internationally. Selected credits include; Miami Ink, Voodoo Musical Festival, Comic Relief tour with Tony Clifton, NBA All Star Weekend and the All The Kings Men premiere.
I don’t really have an answer for this. I don’t really search for inspiration it just sorta happens. I will hear or see something and think, that would make an awesome routine.
Where’s your favourite place to travel to?
Costa Rica but really any place with warm weather and a beach works for me.
Do you have any pets? Tell us about them.
I have a black lab named Zeus and a Roomba named Francois. Francois is our the older of the two and he is amazing because he vacuums the whole house and speaks French when he needs to be emptied. I adopted Zeus just a few months ago from a family that couldn’t take care of him. I wanted to change his name to Grandma so I could say “Grandma stop eating my shoes!” but my husband thought that was a terrible idea. I want to use him in an act but he loves people so much he would just leave the stage and start licking the audience.
