Blues & Burlesque
"Highlight of this year's fringe, an extraordinary fusion of blues comedy and burlesque" **** Heckler Adelaide Aus
"The blues are soulful, the burlesque thrusting and the comedy plentiful" **** Broadway Baby
Live original music cabaret from ex-Dexy Pete Saunders, upstaged superbly by Lady Beau Peep (call her mistress!). Their show is based around Saunders insightful songs on life and now tells the story of how he and his mistress came to be in swingers capital of the UK, Maidenhead. We meet their neighbour from hell Bruise Violet who spices up their swingers parties with her incredible burlesque routines.
Blues and Burlesque was created on the London cabaret circuit by former Dexys pianist Pete Saunders which he took to Edinburgh in 2012 with spectacular success. Pete has played with all sorts the Damned, Carmel, the Jive Aces, Rodriguez and Serious Drinking. The mistress played by veteran cabaret chanteuse Lady Beau Peep whose famous clients have included Ivana Trump, Joan Collins, Buzz Aldrin and Sir Ian McKellen. Bruise Violet won the World Burlesque Games 2013 Best British Female. She is resident headline performer at Proud Cabaret Brighton. Straddling the line between neo and classic she is The Emerald Inferno of modern burlesque!!
“This is a sexy and clever show which is also hilariously naughty and stars a group of highly accomplished individuals at their art. A pleasure.” Brighton and Hove Independent 2016
