Bio: Loretta Jean was born to a pack of vagrants, tramps and thieves. Sadly, their casual lifestyle was not enough to satisfy her lust for glitter. If the troupe was a D&D party, Loretta would be NGB’s resident nercomancer.

As a founding member of Nerd Girl Burlesque, she’s performed all over Toronto. Loretta made her festival debut in 2011 at the Toronto International Burlesque Festival with her partner-in-crime fighting, Delicia Pastiche.

LJ likes to think she’s a smarty-pants is currently pursuing a PhD in Performance Studies, focusing on nerdlesque. When she’s not performing or acadaming, Loretta spends too much time on Tumblr, reads comics, and enjoys rhinestoning everything she owns.
