Suzy King (born Georgina Pires Sampaio, August 28, 1917 – August, 1985) was a Brazilian dancer, singer, actress and fakir.


Georgina Pires Sampaio started her career in 1939, in São Paulo, Brazil, as Diva Rios, singing sambas and marches.

Later on she changed her name to Suzy King and started her iconic act of performing with pythons.

Georgina had her peak during the 1950s when public fakirism was most popular. She was a multi-media star of sorts when such a term did not exist yet, always making sure newspapers would keep abreast of what she was doing.

Georgina wrote a play that was banned by the authorities. She also tried to emulate Lady Godiva wearing a long blond wig to cover her breasts and riding a horse through the center of the city. She was almost gang-raped by a mob and was helped by a good soul that passed by.

Georgina left for the United States in the late 1960s, where she changed her name to Yacui Yapura Sampaio Bailey.

Georgina died in 1985, in California.
