Burlesque Hall of Fame is sad to announce that burlesque legend Barbara Yung has passed away. Yung’s career spanned from the 1940s to the mid-1970s. A favorite in San Francisco’s Chinatown clubs, she also headlined clubs throughout the US, particularly in New Orleans, Dallas, and Hawaii. For her contribution to the art of burlesque, in 2011 we presented her the BHoF Living Legend award. Our condolences go out to her family and loved ones.
