The Holy Mother of Gawd.  
Aka THE VIRGIN XTRAVAGANZAH!

"Heaven is boring.  Gawd is old.  I am a 2,000+ year old virgin and I have had enough!  So I came down to earth to be a superstar!"

London's Holy one and only Virgin Mary drag compere and comedian.

Virgin Xtravaganzah is an international performer and MC - Iceland, Hong Kong, Netherlands, and throughout Europe.  She has brought her shows to The Underbelly Festival, Bethnal Green Working Men's Club, and The Royal Vauxhall Tavern.  
She curates and hosts her semi regular Xtravaganzah variety shows at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern.  
She also regularly comperes for Torture Garden.

Virgin has been interviewed in Victoria Coren Mitchell's 'How to Be a Bohemian' for BBC4 (2015), 'Battle of Soho' by Aro Koral, and 'The Sense of Beauty' for Rai (Italy, 2017).

She is a Virgin on a mission, and she is out to make the world #StrutWithChrist!

This Rock n Roll redhead will get you hot under the collar with her sizzling stage presence and megawatt smile.

From a Hot Rod greaser-girl to a B-movie Cobra Queen and even Robin Hood, she certainly stands out from the crowd!
Scarlett has performed across the UK, and internationally, for over ten years and is a well respected producer, staging shows in Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham and Cardiff.

Talulah Blue specialises in burlesque, classic circus and eras gone by.
With an obsession for 1920's to 1950's glamour & the mystery of  the Bohemian arts, she transcends into a sensual performance.
This vaudevillian showgirl has graced stages from Europe to the Middle East.

This fire-eating follie not only performs, but her creations are worn by performers all across the globe & have been seen on programmes such as ITV's "Mr. Selfridge", "Britain's Got Talent", Channel 5's "Big Brother", and in Marie Claire magazine.

Being the first ever Greek Boylesque performer, John has graced many stages throughout Europe and America, including Greece, Austria, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Netherlands and more.


Lena Mae

Lena Mae - The Shapeshifting Showgirl!

Lena is versatile neo-classical burlesque and vaudeville artist, known for dazzling audiences with her flirtatious, charismatic striptease, mesmerising with darker performance art pieces or in contrast, causing tears of laughter with her ridiculous, risque music hall characters. Impossible to pin down into one genre, Lena is a chameleon of performance. A natural performer with boundless enthusiasm, effervescent energy and a smile that launched a thousand ships - hold on to your hats!
