Let Me Give Some Advice

I have been in this burlesque world for many a year now. Not wishing to date myself I will say I am sure I will be eligible for some sort of pensioner card at some point. HA! In my years performing I often find a fledgling performer (I hate the term ‘newbie’) coming for advice.

So I went to class

I Stood Alone

Tonight I stood on a stage and heard my name bellowed out from the dark. The audience already on their feet and clapping. Tonight I cried on stage. It may have only been a private gig, a small gig but I never felt more alone and more surrounded at the same time. I dont want

I made a costume in 5 hours

I decided to make a costume. I made one. In 5 hours. I used only what I found in the house already. Enjoy this video if nothing else for my idiot voice and crap jokes. To be honest this is a video to dispel the ideas that you need to splurge lots of money to
