If you haven’t seen a burlesque show before, or you haven’t seen some of the acts that we’ve seen, then this little taster should give you an idea on what kind of awesomeness awaits you at the 2017 Bristol Burlesque Festival

Have a taster of Rubyyy Jones, Trixi Tassels, Kheski Kobler, Good Ness Gracious, Tuesday Laveau, and Dis Charge…

Rubyyy Jones
(From: Rubyyy Jones – Showgrrrl 2016, appearing at BBF PARADISE 2017)

ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM like a lightning bolt of love from the ether appears Rubyyy 3 Ys Jones!

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM like a jet fighter she’s on stage big and bad and adoringly indulging!

‘Hey, everyone!…”

And with that Rubyyy’s off…riffing through the chaos and mayhem of her loved up anarcho sex funk.

“YOU’RE SO WELCOME…”

“…DON’T I LOOK GORGEOUS!”

“DON’T I LOOK GORGEOUS…DON’T I LOOK GORGEOUS!!!!”

“CHEER FOR ME!”

“COME ON!”

“I’M A BIG FAT FABULOUS…QUEER CANADIAN!”

“YOU’RE F****** WELCOME!”

And CUT!

WHOOP!!!! WHOOP!!! WHOOP!!

Rumble, rumble, ROAAAAAAAARRRRR!!!!”

Total crowd enthusiasm and appreciation.

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

LOVEGRRRL. SHOWGRRRL. RIOTGRRRL.

KABOOM!

Trixi Tassel
(From: Rubyyy Jones – Showgrrrl 2016, appearing at BBF PARADISE 2017)

“Everyone on the left say TRIXI!’

“Everyone on the right say TASSEL!”

<“TRIXI!”

>“TASSELS!”

<“TRIXI!”

>“TASSELS!”

<“TRIXI!”

>“TASSELS!”

“TRIXI TASSELS!!!!!!!!”

Reggae bass lines rumble into life and a gorgeous lady sweeps gently onto the stage.
Pulling signs from a holder Trixi Tassels reveals…

[FEMALE NIPPLES = DANGEROUS]

A few dances moves later…

[MALE NIPPLES = OKAY]

A couple more delicate twists and turns and little bit of nudity…

[MY NIPPLES = DEFINITELY A HAZARD]

WOOOHOOO!!!

It’s that ROAAAAAAAARR from the crowd again…

Reggae and burlesque…now that I like. Actually better make that LOVE! What a funny and fine performance.

Kheski Kobler
(From: Rubyyy Jones – Showgrrrl 2016, appearing at BBF PARADISE 2017)

Everyone on the left say KHESKI!”

“Everyone on the right say KOBLER!”

<“KHESKI!”

>“KOBLER!”

<“KHESKI!”

>“KOBLER!”

<“KHESKI!”

>“KOBLER!”

“KHESKI KOBLER!”

Kheski Kobler bounces onto the stage looking every inch a perfect tear sheet from a 1970s magazine cover…white bra, white underwear, and a hamper filled with strawberries. Except this magazine cover is completely different…Kheski picks at the strawberries, teases them, tongues them, throws them into the audience, the front row, whoever, wherever, before starting to shove them down the insides of her bra and panties until everything begins to run red!

Have that macho, stereotypical sexism!

Good Ness Gracious
(From: Apothecary – Celebration 2016, appearing at BBF PARADISE 2017)

Oh, it’s a Nun…better be on good behaviour…

F*** knows why…she’s not! The dab’s swigging from a hip flask! This must be some relation of Father Jack.

(Brick!)

Anyway…Ave Maria belts out from Good Ness Gracious…

But she’s getting quite drunk, drunk drunk!

And now she’s slumped in a chair…BUT! BUT! BUT! She’s up!

She’s dancing! It’s a drunken nun disco striptease!

Raaah ram

Baaaa bam

Shaking bottom!

Boop-boop-boop-boop!

Ta da!

Wunderbar!

Tuesday Laveau
(From: Apothecary – Unbirthday, appearing at BBF RENEGADES 2017) 

Next up!

TUESDAY LAVEAU!

So there’s a big board on stage covered with cobwebs…and Tuesday Laveau…

The music starts, Tuesday writhes around…but there are hands in the board! Some arms have popped out! And they have wandering hands! Wandering, writhing, investigating hands! Clammy and mischievous. And they’re all over Tuesday….It’s a gothic, midnight feast (quite like those)…

Boobs are rubbed, and hands are investigating everywhere…It’s an exploration…

It’s a hell of an act…

WHOOOOOOP-WOOOOOHOOOO!

Love it!

Dis Charge
(From: Rubyyy Jones – Showgrrrl 2016, hosting BBF EXCLUSIVITY, RENEGADES, PARADISE)

“Everyone on the left say DIS!”

“Everyone on the right say CHARGE!”

<“DIS!”

>“CHARGE!”

<“DIS!”

>“CHARGE!”

<“DIS!”

>“CHARGE!”

“DIS CHARGE!”

Sia’s Alive spirits out of the speakers before detonating into a full on canter…Dis Chargebegins to twist and turn into a beautiful mad ballet. With the song and dance moves, this performance is one epic little motherf*cker…body pyrotechnics would be a good way to describe it. It’s explosive and quick and filled with electricity.

“I’M ALIVE! I’M ALIVE!”

“I’M ALIVE!”

Dis Charge dances off the stage and into the crowd, half naked, 100% determined, a million percent victorious.

WHOOP!!!! WHOOP!!! WHOOP!!

HOLLA HOLLA HOLLA!!!

WHOOOOOOHOOOO!!!

And with that…

KABOOM!
