Brandy Martin        aka. “The Society Stripper”..
In 1956, Harold Minsky ranked Brandy #3 in his TOP 12 list of Burlesk performers.. Saying of her: "She surprises you. She appears at first to be aesthetic, almost delicate. But then she hits you with a lowdown act that makes you sit up. Contrast is always exciting,— and Brandy gives you plenty of that.."
