February 2nd Line-Up

Violet Blaze

The award winning Violet Blaze presents Being Beyoncé. Channelling her inner diva … Violet Blaze brings to life the spirit of the ultimate Queen B.. Beyoncé! EXPECT PLENTY OF

The Twins Macabre

A deliciously dark comedy sideshow. The infamous psychic siblings conjure the voices of the damned through twisted sketches & songs. Soon to be seen on BBC3’s Live at the Electric.

Bebe van der Belt

 Bebe takes the stage in a glamorous evening gown and fur and sings ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’’. She is abruptly cut off by the voice over of casting directors who were hoping to see something…sexier. The music changes and Bebe goes into a charming, cheeky striptease…though perhaps that’s not what the casting directors had in mind!


Heffernan and Fletcher

With dreams of Vegas in tatters, Heffernan and Fletcher find a way to deal with the post-sequin blues. Character comedy from award-winning double act Heffernan and Fletcher.

Kim Khaos

Beware of El Tigre! A lonely jaguar stalks the deepest, darkest heart of the jungle looking for her prey and is overcome by desire when she finds it!

Isabelle L’Amour

A modern retelling of the Greek myth Medusa with a Burlesque & Bellydance twist. Complete with a dark elegance and a costume oozing with glamour, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off Medusa.

Rosie Kohl

Rosie Kohl has performed extensively in London and internationally as a tribal fusion bellydancer. Her vaudevillian sensibility and flair for the theatrical makes this vintage vixen a compelling mix of antique glamour and avant-garde innovation. In this sharp, electro-swing piece, Rosie dons a top hat and cane in an unexpected collision of classic swing and modern bellydance.

Sadie Sinner The Songbird


In the land of Milk and Honey, luxuries are plentiful, all things are good and the sweet sound of The Songbird can be heard. Intended for the Insatiable, this is a lullaby for Lovers, that will leave you longing…

Nina LaBelle

Based on the golden age ‘femme fatale’ of the film noir genre, Nina’s signature act exhibits her explosive bombshell figure as she seductively peels to Michael Bublé’s Feeling Good. She entrances her audience into a state of voyeuristic ecstasy whilst she removes each item of her decadent costume in tantalisingly slow fashion. Her routine’s climax leaves both men and women feeling satisfyingly indulged in guilty pleasure.



PiTheMime has been running wild about London. Pi and the other mimes have been spotted in festivals, on the streets and in theatres across London – and they have their sights set on global takeover. Join Pi, Mimi, Ameli, Sayuri and Zabini the mimes as they provide laughs, sex and mischief galore!
