Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

No darlings, I have been to Edinburgh many times before- I just can’t stay away! The last time I was there though was actually outside of festival time, as I was the MC (Mistress of Chaos as I like to call it) for the infamous variety show La Clique. I am super excited to be coming back to the festival this year with new hilariously filthy songs, a 3 piece Weimar punk jazz band, and some of the best acts in the business in the Little Death Club.

What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?

We have toured Little Death Club around Australia with such an incredible response and had a fully SOLD OUT season in a beautiful Spiegeltent in Perth fringe world this year. I have also consumed a LOT of delicious gin since then…

Tell us about your show.

It is the darkest, funniest, most debauched kabarett show this side of Berlin. A travelling home for all the punks, freaks and weirdos of the world. I created the show with Tom Velvick from Dead Man label 2 years ago. It started as a late night lock in in a Spiegeltent and has grown into the ultimate Kabarett show with a hilarious original soundtrack, a 3 piece Weimar punk jazz band, and some of the best acts in the business- breathtaking circus, fire breathing side show, fierce drag and ridiculous characters who we are lucky enough to call our carnie family. We are super proud of this show and can not wait to bring it to the Underbelly Spiegeltent in the Circus Hub. The show is being produced by Dead Man Label in conjunction with Underbelly,, and the Edinburgh run will be it’s first time in the UK.

What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?

There are so many shows I’m looking forward to this year that I’m not sure how I’m going to fit them all in! Courtney Act who is on in the Underbelly Spiegeltent just before us, Velma Celli (absolutely gorgeous and has an incredible voice), Josh Glanc (who is also performing the Little Death Club this season) is an amazing character comedian, absolutely hilarious. Also Yana Alana ‘Between the Cracks’ as she is an incredible Aussie cabaret superstar,  and I never miss Le Gateau Chocolat…
