Jacques Patriaque was discovered by Viennese Burlesque icon Kitty Willenbruch in 2010. She immediately hired him for her Burlesque Show “Salon Kitty Revue" to perform the newly discovered art of Boylesque on stage at the small theater “Varieté Café Arena Bar”. He was the first male performer to be invited to Dr. Sketchy's Anti Art School in Salzburg, co-hosted Kitty Willenbruch's late-night talk show "Salon Kitty TV" in 2012, appeared with Conchita Wurst in several episodes of the Sat1 TV show "Das süße Leben der Stars" ("The Sweet Life of the Stars ") and was a contestant on the Austrian talent casting show "Die Große Chance" ("The Big Chance").

In 2014 he launched the annual "Vienna Boylesque Festival" – the first of its kind in Europe – , which has since gained great popularity and international acclaim. That year he also began producing his series of club events "Imperial Madness" that are each hosted by a Drag Queen from the U.S. hit series "RuPaul's Drag Race".

Jacques has been booked for countless shows in New York, such as Jonny Porkpies burlesque/theater production, "Dead Evil Sexy" and "Church of Titillation" at Times Scare, the Burlesque Mekka Club "Slipper Room", "Homoerectus" at the historic Stonewall Inn and Trixie Little's (2015 Miss Exotic World - Reigning Queen of Burlesque) "Trouble in Stubble – Masters of Male Striptease" in Baltimore.

In 2015, he was Ambassador of Austrian Culture and Diversity at the "Austrian Cultural Forum New York" and organized and produced the first-ever Burlesque Show at that venue. He was also voted to 9th place in the Burlesque TOP 10 Europe (excl. UK) on www.21stcenturyburlesque.com in 2015.

In 2016 he was crowned "Queen of Geneva" for his original act "Mars Attacks" and did his 2nd international Tour, in cities such as Paris, Stockholm, Seattle, New York and Zurich. In February he headlined the “Queerlesque Festival“ in Florence and will also be headlining the 1st ever “Stuttgart Burlesque Festival“ in October along with the 1st Runner Up for Miss Exotic World 2016 Contestant Lada Redstar.
