Franki Markstone

Delightfully Obnoxious Mouthpiece and Bodacious Bisexual

Performing since 2003

Tampa, Florida - USA

Originally from the Lone Star State, Franki Markstone burst onto the Florida scene in 2002. The sheer variety of acts she has brought to the stage secured her as a fan favorite very early in her career. Having toured the country as a Feature Exotic Dancer, she gained a fan base on a town to town basis. The game changed in 2003 when "Ana Mosity" came into play on the pages of Pro Wrestling Illustrated 's 2004 collectors edition of "Most Beautiful Women of Wrestling". Her face and body went from indoors adult-only, to nationwide and highly recognizable. Unfortunately her time in the wrestling world was cut short by a severe neck injury. She retired from that scene in 2007. Always the promoter and performer, Markstone continued to build her brand working for many different iconic venues and bands. Always making sure to get her name "out there" she danced at The Castle in Ybor, and began touring with The Genitorturers. In 2003 she help form and eventually co-produced Thee Vaudvillains with Vita DeVoid, boasting south Florida's largest burlesque and cabaret cast. Franki became the face and voice of that show, taking a mic into her hand for the first time and becoming not only one of the shows feature performers, but also it's host and emcee. Drawing on her comedy and wrestling background (promos), it was here that she really found connection with her fan base. So much so that her emceeing gained her the moniker "The delightfully obnoxious mouth piece". The bond between she and her fan-base grows stronger every year. After splitting with the Villains in fall of 2008, Franki pursued a solo career in burlesque and added celebrity impersonation into her arsenal of stage concepts. Refining her "Liza" to just-like-being-there performance. Prior to becoming a solo performer she was booked many times by Orlando based group Les Vixens with Ivy.  This went from a few bi monthly dates starting in 2004, to monthly, to official Vixen in 2006.  That relationship still standing to this day.  Markstone has traveled the country, entertained thousands of fans, made her mark in many different fields and forms of entertainment having never confined herself to just one "gimmick"...but there one thing she is infamous for. Tassels. Anyone who has seen it happen knows that this isn't your everyday tassel twirling! Franki's tassel isolations have skyrocketed her popularity in burlesque shows all over the east coast. As she continues to further her career in entertainment, comedy, and burlesque, one can only imagine what she will come up with next. Franki's most known for her signature acts "hotel California"- a classic strip, "Amadeus" - her bed of nails act, and most beloved act "Magic Man" - her trademark tribute to Harry Potter.
