Trixie & the Monkey was an acrobat duo act from Season 4 of America's Got Talent. The duo was eliminated in the audition round.

Background

Trixie Little & the Evil Hate Monkey are an award-winning acrobatic burlesque superduo that has been flipping and stripping for audiences since 2002. Trixie and Monkey showcase trapeze, striptease, acrobatics and physical comedy in burlesque, cabaret, variety, and theater shows.

Hailing from Baltimore (aka "Charm City"), Trixie and Monkey have performed with John Waters, The Flaming Lips, four consecutive Virgin Mobile Music Festivals, Rothbury Music Festival, the Philly, DC and Brighton, England Fringe Festivals, Tease-o-rama 2/3, all seven New York Burlesque Festivals, have earned a "Best of Baltimore" vote and are the winners of Las Vegas' 2006 Exotic World Best Burlesque Duo trophy. They also performed in the premiere episode of "The Gong Show with Dave Attel" on Comedy Central.

In New York City, the two are regular late-night fixtures everywhere from uber-exclusive nightclubs like The Box to long-running burlesque shows like The Slipper Room, and have been called "the only way to end the party" by the Village Voice.

Trixie and Monkey have a repertoire of over 30 different acts and two full length theater shows. [1]

Audition

Trixie and the Monkey's audition in Episode 405 consisted of a performer dressed in a monkey costume balancing on another performer's shoulders and acting like a monkey on a leash. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff all buzzed the act. All three judges voted "No", eliminating the duo from the competition.

After the Show

Trixie and the Monkey have since auditioned for La France a un incroyable talent in 2015, making it through the auditions but being cut before the following round. Monkey, known fully as Evil Hate Monkey, returned to America's Got Talent by himself in Season 14.
