Die Wies

BURLESQUE favorite 6 Ft. Tall Baby Giraffe

Burlesque performer and emcee extraordinaire Sgt. Die Wies (pronounced DEVICE) began in 2006 in Pittsburgh, PA when she started her cabaret show and troupe Sinastar Exhibit. After moving back to California (Oakland) in 2008, with support from Kat De Lac (PGH) , Sparkly Devil, Jim Sweeney and the late Eddie Dane she began performing with The Hubba Hubba Revue, shortly thereafter changing the pronunciation of Die Wies (DIE WISE) to (DEVICE) thanks to the help of one Juicy D. Light. Adding producing to her talents of performing and hosting, in 2012 she created her show production Womanopoly with her best Friend Elyse Elaine. 

After Elyse relocated to Las Vegas, and Womanopoly’s original host Luscious Lucius retired, Sarge moved forward with the rebranding of Womanopoly as WomanoplySF and 3 years ago acquired her ongoing residency at the city’s new favorite queer woman of color-owned queer bar, Jolene’s, in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission district!
