Best of Burlesque

Best of Burlesque showcases the World Burlesque Games in its’ semi-finals, bringing you a different show each night.

The host, Kiki Deville, comfortably connects with the audience thanks to her wicked sense of humour and sensuously glittery stage presence. The show sees a variety of costumes unique to each act gracing the stage. This ranges from an androgynous suit and hat, silky scarves, and the slightly less tasteful walking inflatable penis.

The highlights of the show are Whiskey Falls, whose incredible talents at shimmying were passed on to unsuspecting audience members beckoned on stage, Empress Stah from Le Haggis who performs a sizzling aerial hoop routine in a sparsely sequinned costume and finally, Eliza DeLite. Winner of the Burlesque games in 2014, her traditional burlesque routine is sexy and holds the audience’s anticipation for the right amount of time, leaving several gobsmacked faces as she saucily exits the stage.
