Whip & Kitten Burlesque

The Whip & Kitten, Rossendale, BB4 8EW
Fri 14th June 2019 8:00PM
Join us for another fabulous evening of Burlesque on 14th May at The Whip & Kitten!

From the comedy addled brain of Velma Von Bon Bon comes boozy Russian ex-Moscow
State Circus performer Natalia Kalashnikov. With a penchant for 80s cheese and a lust for
danger she's a rebel with a cause, a cause to spread joy and alcoholic beverages throughout
the UK and European cabaret scene. A hedonistic cocktail of glamour and filth, guaranteeing
you a night filled with glitter and debauchery and not a dry seat in the house. Short on
stature, big on personality, rarely sober and inexplicably moist...at all times.
Voted in the Top 20 Burlesque Performers in the UK every year 2013-2018
Voted in the Top 10 UK Burlesque Performers 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017

for the Burlesque Awards 2016.

International showgirl Lady Wildflower commands audiences with her fierce, high-energy
performances, full of drama and passion. Oozing sex appeal and with charisma dripping
from her sparkling talons, Wildflower's show-stopping acts dazzle, entrance and delight.
Voted in the Top 20 UK Burlesque performers every year since 2014 and recently named
number 67 in the world by 21st Century Burlesque. An award-winning nipple tassel twirler,
Wildflower earned “Best Technique” and was first runner up overall at the Octbooberfest
Championships in Stockholm – where she twirled her tassels continuously for over 15
minutes! Lady Wildflower has performed all over the world over the past decade, including
China, New York & regularly stars on stages all over Europe.


'The Silly Faced Seductress' is a Burlesque Artist, Singer, Host, Clown and Drag King.
Ness started her career as a professional singer and actress in 2009, but it wasn't until 2013
that the fabulous world of cabaret found its way in into her heart. Since then she has
entertained audiences in Venice, Berlin, Treviso, Prague, Milan, Stuttgart, Padua, Munich,
Leipzig, Hamburg, London and up and down the UK.
She has taken part in festivals and competitions both at home and abroad and won The Neo
Burlesque Awards; in 2015. Won the audience choice award at Hebden Bridge 'Legend in
the Making', came 2nd in 'Burlesque Idol' and a Semi Finalist in 'Drag Idol'.

Sex, sass and tease all in a big beautiful body. Kimmy Von Shimmy is a classic burlesque
performer who represents the sensual woman of size. We so often see larger bodies being
clowned or fetishized and so in protest of that, Kimmy's acts are unashamedly bold,
unapologetically sexual and emotionally charged. Get ready to wipe off your seats!
Kimmy Von Shimmy made her burlesque debut competing in Burlesque Idol 2014. She won her heat and went on to place 2nd runner up in the Grand Final. She was also awarded
Raven Nior's Rising Star as a finalist in 2015. Kimmy found a real passion for striptease whilst
training with Goodtime Mama Jojo aka Jo King and Gwendolyn Lamour. She has been
included in Hebden Bridge Burlesque Festival, Bristol Burlesque Festival and Sheffield
Burlesque Festival as well as working regularly with successful shows up & down the UK.

Neo-burlesque performer, Celeste, takes you on a journey of empowerment and wonder.
Since shooting like the star she is onto the scene in 2017 she has been wowing audiences
with her burlesque and aerial skills, taking you out of this world with her heavenly body and
demonstrating that strong definitely can be sexy.
After training with Lady Wildflower, Celeste has performed regularly all over the UK &
Ireland, including the renowned Frou Frou Club, Hebden Bridge and the Cork Burlesque
Festival. Winner of the Spare Rib Superstar “Audience Choice” 2018 and The Tea Time
Tassel Off 2018 “Satan’s Angel’s Choice”, Celeste Steel serves up sensuality, sass and a
whole lot of sparkle.

This smoking hot lady broke into the burlesque scene and on to our stages in February 2019
after training under Lady Wildflower. She oozes sex appeal and captivates and excites
audiences with her elegant yet jaw dropping performances. With her winning smile and
pure sass, this Yorkshire born and bred powerhouse radiates confidence, fun and leaves
audiences wanting more! She is truly, without a shadow of a doubt, all the sunshine you’ll
need on a rainy day…
