How much money does a Stripper make?

So at work I was talking about how much a waitress can make, I said a good waitress can make as much on tips as a stripper. This girl said no way, she said Strippers make a thousand dollars a night. I just couldn't believe that, maybe on a good night, maybe in Fort Mac, but no way does a stripper usually make a thousand a night on average. STrippers make good money, but they aren't loaded.

Any one know??

No idea but I would say strippers make a lot more then servers.
Not sure if it's the same for all strip clubs but places in Vancouver, it's not like they just dance and stuff. When they're not on stage, they go around and ask if you want a private show/lap dance. I remember one time, we bought a lap dance for a friend because it was his birthday and it was at least a $100. I also heard stories of some dirty places will do more then a lap dance. If a lap dance costs $100, other thing may cost $150/200? I'm sure when you get a lot of drunken dirty guys, they would get a couple of ppl asking for a lap dance. ALso, one place, some strippers were selling movies/posters.

*I'm sure strippers from dirty strip club don't make a lot of money. Strippers at a high end club(in Vancouver, Brandy's is high end place and thats where the celebrities go to. Ben Afflect went there)make decent money.

Some of them can make quite a bit of money. It all depends on the area though.

Probably more then that. I'd say over $500 for the full thing easy. Actually probably even more. Probably be $200 for a handy.

How do tips work at restaurants? Don't the waitresses split all the tips with the bus boys, cooks and whoever else work that night? I'm sure waitresses/waiters make decent money, but I'd say strippers make quite a bit more.

I guess $500, I wouldn't know but I guess it would make sense.

For servers, the place I work, they give tips to the cooks,dishwashers,bartenders, expo's, and the hostesses. Not sure what the % is. Also, it's based on sales, not how much tips they made. So, if you get a really crappy tip, you're basically paying for the food because you're still paying for the % of the sales and that % maybe bigger then the tip you got.

best friend was a stripper...
here's the scoop
(she actually worked at Brandy's in Vancouver as mentioned above in this thread)....

If it's a club in part of a circuit (you travel to different clubs each week) and the circuit is a higher level club (more expensive drinks, higher cover charge, nicer club) you make a set fee per night, plus tips, plus 'extras' as mentioned above.

On a busy weekend night, a hot and talented girl can walk out with $1500 plus a night, subsequently, on a slow night in a shadier club, the average is around $300- 600 a night.

Still not a bad living... but you trade so much for the $$$$$$$

it's sad to see a pretty, smart, talented girl with ***** self esteem.

At a classy place like Peppermint Rhino I'm sure they make at least 150k.

Well that what I figure, don't get me wrong. I think they could make a ton of money one night, My point is I think this girl was vastly over estimating the earning potential of a stripper over a year. I mean in a good club on a weekend, one could make 1 500, but they cna't do that every night.

So I guess my point is, sure, a stripper can make 1000 a night, but not the avrage stripper on a avage night. On a yearly basis I have a hard time believing the average stripper will rake in 200k a year.

Any way, I don' tthink any one will know for sure. Somewhere in the Canada revenue data base, there is a record of average yearly earnings for a stripper, after all it is a taxable profession, of course, needless to say, they probably don't declare most of their tips!!!

Thanks, you are a great guy. However this could be a confounding variable, as you going could influence how much they make, my guess is you going might mean they make a lot more

Location, looks and your ability to hustle is what dictates what a stripper is going to make. A good looking girl at a very nice club in Vegas is going to make a hell of a lot more than a good looking girl at a very nice club in Edmonton. $1,000+ a night is not out of the question but probably not the norm. Maybe in NYC, Chicago, LA and Vegas. A girl at a dive in some suburb of Oklahoma City is probably lucky to walk away with $200-$300 in a night.

Thats w/o 'extras', just stripping.

i am really surprised that no one has tried to impersonate a stripper and claim outrageously high or really low amounts .

but i am gonna agree that it depends on where and what club. It is a business like anything else, you get paid for the product you put out. The hotter and more talented the girl; the more she will get paid and the better strip clubs she will be able to work at. the trashy strippers will get paid like trash.

but the average stripper makes more than the average server, i have no doubt in that

Another factor that goes along with the class of the club is whether or not they have feature acts. A lot of pornstars will travel and dance at clubs around the US (not sure if they go into Canada at all or if Canadian pornstars do the same thing). If it's a big name feature (Jenna Jameson, for instance), that'll bring more people to the club than normal and therefore all the girls will make more money.

The biggest factor is how good you are. The real bucks are when you get people coming back regularly just to see you. That's the whole goal of a stripper, once it's over you want to come back and do it again.

My buddy owns a strip club in one of the classier places in Toronto, and from what he tells me, a stripper can make close to 150K per year, while only having to work 2 - 3 nights/week.

You also have to remember that these girls/women have day jobs as well. One of the strippers at my buddies club is on the board of a pretty large company.


BTW, if you happen to order a drink or food at a strip club, make sure to pay with smaller bills ($5 or $10), unless you have no problem with the waitress walking away with your $20, $50 or $100 bill without giving you your change after buying a $2 drink.

This happened to my buddy with a $50 bill. Waitress walked away (He ordered a beer) until he chased after her and asked for his change back....LOL
