This is Gracie Klutz. She’s a sweetie pie in the face. She’s been called the Haphazard Heartbreaker, Toronto’s Nicest Showgirl and A Beautiful Disaster.
But enough about what other people think of me, what do I think of me…?
I am a Toronto blogess who’s stumbled through the looking glass, into the labyrinth and over the rainbow onto the burlesque stage…okay, I exaggerated that last bit for effect, but I think you’re mixing my metaphors, if you know what I mean.
I am a showgirl gone mild. I have been a performer for over 15 years. In that time I have done it all; stand up, sketch comedy, hosting, musical theatre, Shakespeare.
Creator of #PinUpsbyGracie and CEO of Klutz Mega Korp, and founding member of the Cirkle K Kollective. For over 10 years, I have been an unsuccessful entrepreneur. In 2013, that changed. I was thrown into the Pin Up world, and I had no idea what to do with my hair… So I made it up: I sewed myself a head-band-dana, people like it, they love it, and now, I make/sell/wear them all over Ontario and the internet.
On a personal level, I am a puppy enthusiast who is easily distracted by I SPY books and magic tricks. I’m a natural blonde. I love vanilla lattes and sunny days spent in the dog park with my Puppa-tinkeroo: Jilly. I play the ukulele; her name is Baby Belle. I am learning to juggle. I read Lemony Snicket books, and keep trying to write my own youth mystery fiction. My inspirations include Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe, Steve Martin and my Mother. Who, coincidentally all have white-ish hair. I love performing. It’s a great relief that Gracie lets me finally be who I have always been. And I hope you love her as much as I do.
