On March 12, I guest hosted New York’s only all singing burlesque and variety show!
The show featured guest artists Olive TuParty, Twinky Boots, and Lady Mabuhay. Our live pianist was Jeremy Goodman. Our door dame was Dixie Disaster. After the show, Joe McGinty led piano karaoke until the wee hours of the night.
I sang Give Him The Oo-la-la, The Spanx Song, and a soulful rendition of Bad Touch by The Bloodhound Gang.
On September 14th, I was in the Coney Island Film Festival Opening gala. I kicked off the night by gogo dancing on the Freak Bar with Dixie Disaster. Then, I served as stage kitten and magician’s assistant for the main show hosted by Adam Realman. Adam did some sword swallowing and sideshow which I assisted. Tigger! and Wae Messed did burlesque. Xander Lovecraft (sideshow), Greg Dubin (magic), and Sara Parks (comedy) also performed. I also got to show off my contortion skills by going into The Box.
On February 11th, 2018 I was in another Newlesque show at Arlene’s Grocery. This show focuses on performers with less than 2 years of burlesque experience. I debuted my Love Act.
The show was produced by Claudia Freebird and hosted by Shelly Watson. Other performers included Dickie Smalls, Betty Brash, Dixie Disaster, Trixie Delight, Bitsy Brulee, Angelica Lavalier, Mina Minou, Rebecca Fey, and Anna Shevitz. Stage kitten was Ramona Meow.
