About Tito Bonito

Greetings, all! 

Welcome to my Patreon page!

For those who do not know, I am a male burlesque performer, host, instructor, and producer known to the world as Tito Bonito (a.k.a. “The Cuban Missile Crisis” of Burlesque). I am also a comedian, dancer, actor, graphic designer, editor (audio & video), choreographer, instructor, as well as so much more. Utilizing all of these skills has allowed me to create a strong identity in the neo-vaudeville resurgence.

Originally, I performed in Chicago for two years before moving to Los Angeles in late 2012. Since then, I have continued to grow as both an artist and a person. Within my first year in LA, I was named one of Time Out LA's Best Burlesque Performers in LA and "Most Comedic" at the 1st Annual Burlypicks. In the next few years, performing and hosting shows across southern California led me to join several wondrous productions.

In 2013, I started a YouTube channel called Cuban Missile Series that chronicled my career and travels across America and internationally. I produced, filmed, edited, and starred in the series for three years to underwhelming views but a surprising impact. 

Doing it all alone proved to be too much especially when performing in new spaces and wanting to live in the moment and be as professional as possible. Therefore, I took a break and decided to direct my attention to growing my social media presence on all three major platforms; Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. All of my new videos would be uploaded on those networks. That’s where everyone was watching. So the channel took a rest, but in 2016, I was named one of LA Weekly’s People of 2016, and while being interviewed they told me that it was my webshow that gained their attention. That’s when I realized the power of YouTube and the content that I was making.

Therefore, I would love to bring back “Cuban Missile Series” with a DOCUMENTARY, a ONE MAN SHOW, and relaunching my CHANNEL. I have learned so much constructing this show from scratch as well as growing from live productions across the country. Meeting so many people I admire and working with them has allowed me to really develop skills I want to utilize through video. I am eager to apply all of the knowledge that I have gained to expand this show but I need help. The stress of producing and managing your own career while booking, traveling, teaching, choreographing, performing, producing, and trying to have any sort of life is beyond stressful. 

That’s where you come in.

Since I started Patreon, I have been been featured in several media outlets including magazine publications, music videos, podcasts, webseries, and in shows/festivals across the globe. Earlier in 2019, I was ranked #63 of the Top 100 Burlesque Industry Figures Worldwide by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine. I have also began producing more live shows and currently run at least one show a week. 

I do the majority of it on my own (including poster design, video editing, promotion, producing, hosting, and performing) because, right now, that is the only way for me to create and share my art successfully. Your help will change all of that tremendously.

Love,
Tito
