Brent Ray Fraser, Exotic Dancer Sued After Patron Burned During Fiery Act

A steamy ladies night at a Vancouver bar has resulted in a B.C. Supreme Court lawsuit in which a patron claims she was literally scorched by an exotic dancer's fiery act.

In a notice of civil claim, Kristin Momeyer says she received second-degree burns to her hands and left leg when Brent Ray Fraser's performance went awry in June 2013.

"Fraser came on to the dance floor with a skillet or a small metal mixing bowl, which he lit on fire. The skillet then overturned, splashing fire on to the plaintiff," the claim reads.

Momeyer is suing Fraser, AuBar Nightclub and the owner of a company which allegedly supplies exotic dancers to local businesses.

'I consoled the bride'

In an email to CBC News, Fraser claimed he is not to blame for the incident.

"The bride and her party were sitting about four feet away from the flames during my show. Then a patron stumbled on stage during my performance and kicked the pot, spilling the fiery alcohol on the bride's leg," he said in the email.

"I consoled the bride afterwards."

Fraser says he helped the woman apply ice and tried to contact her after to see if she was alright.

He says he had performed the act before without incident, but has since dropped the flaming element.

"That was the last time I used the theatrical element."

Fraser claims on his website to be one of B.C.'s most sought-after male dancers.

He says he also works as an artist, combining the two professions in "notorious" shows in which he creates massive works of art using a body part in place of a paintbrush.

In her claim, Momeyer alleges Fraser was not properly educated or supervised, given the use of fire in his act.

She claims to have sustained loss of earnings as a result of the incident and is suing for unspecified damages.

None of the claims have been proven in court.
