Viva Rebel Rock!

Copyright: Craig Richmond

Last week saw the tremendous success of the beautifully sleazy Barelesque 4: CineSex! in aid of the Albert Kennedy Trust. Hosted by the divinely foul mouthed Ophelia Bitz, CineSex! saw astounding performances from Arcane Sin's surrealism with a continental twist to the too-damn-hot Bugsy Malone cross dressing turned filthy lap dancing of Jada Love.The auction was bigger and better than ever before with frenzied bidding on, amongst many other delights, a boudoir photo shoot, a course of singing lessons and sizzling lingerie. Barelesque keeps going from strength to strength and the Barelesque Minxes and I are really looking forward to thrilling audiences and raising more cash for a brilliant charity at the next event.

Barelesque 4: CineSex! also saw the debut of my new 70s Vampire act which is a loving if nonsensical tribute to the Queens of Scream from Hammer and European horror films of what I personally view as a golden age of cinema. All I can say is that I'm heavily indebted to late night Channel 4 during my formative years.

If you missed the debut of my oversexed blood thirsty creation, 70s Vampire will be visiting Bar Elixir in Camden this Saturday for Viva Rebel Rock! - the final show of my burlesque family The Rebel Rebels. After over three years of being the comedy misfits of burlesque, The Rebel Rebels have decided to call it a day due to grown up commitments. It's been wonderful being in a troupe with four funny, intelligent and strong women.

The beauty of The Rebel Rebels is that each artist portrays their own bold character yet simultaneously compliments the rest of the group with their individuality. And our rehearsals are a wine-soaked scream! The Rebel Rebels are burlesque's answer to The Spice Girls (and no, being blonde and the youngest certainly does not make me Baby!) and proves that you do not have to conform in order to entertain.

Viva Rebel Rock! will be hosted by the handsomest man alive Lucky van den Boon and guest performers include musical boy wonder J'onn J'onzz, gorgeous Eljay and her ukulele, and the instrumental genius that is Paul Browse with his secret weapon - a fish slice!

So come join me and the other Rebel Rebels - Lolly Pops, Betsy Bliss, More More Kensington and Little Miss Naughty - for one last party of burlesque and live music. Decadent mourning dress optional and what a fabulous option it is.

Viva Rebel Rock! is on Saturday 27th April at Bar Elixir, Eversholt Street, Camden. Doors open at 7pm, Show at 8pm.

£7 tickets for Viva Rebel Rock! are available here:
