Tease and Vaudeville Stripped Bare - The London Burlesque Festival - April 1st - 5th 2009

Posted: 24th February 2009

Where on Earth can you go and see some of the greatest strip-tease and sexy Burlesque in London as part of the biggest Festival for this genre? Have a guess.....yep, the awesome Madame Jo-Jos bar and club in Soho. 5 days of bump and grind from the nation's finest dancers, solo and troupes, 100 of them in fact, across 5 different venues across the Capital. The first night takes place at the Cafe De Paris in Coventry Street on April 1st and you can guarantee this will not be a performance for fools - luminaries of lacy lingerie will include Diva Hollywood, Stella Starr and Dolly Blowup. The second night (Apr 2) takes place as a double showcase at the famous Madame Jo-Jos in Brewer Street - Fifi Fatale and Roxy Velvet feature in the early showcase (6-9pm) while Lil Miss Chievious and Coco Deville are part of the lengthy line-up of lovelies in the later showcase (10pm-3am). 3 more nights in Pentonville Road (Scala), Uxbridge Road (Bush Hall) and the aforementioned Cafe De Paris round up this extravaganza of the best possible taste. Tickets are on sale now.
