Yesterday we introduced you to burlesque superstar Anna Fur Laxis in our series on Cheescake Burlesque. Anna tells us more about her favourite cheesecake performers.

“To me, cheesecake means upbeat, fun, cheeky, slightly silly, big-cartoon-eyed, innocent, playful exaggerated femininity,” Anna Fur Laxis told Burlexe.

“I don’t think it would surprise anyone who knows me if I say that my biggest cheesecake inspiration comes from Bettie Page. I don’t think I’ll ever get bored of looking at photographs and videos of her, she had an incredible energy which comes across even in still photographs and everything she did was infused with a playful edge – even her darkest bondage shots.”

Bazuka Joe of the Stage Door Johnnies is great at cheesecake. He has the perfect face for giving the audience cheeky looks and he’s very funny. The best glove peel I’ve ever seen is Bazuka’s oven glove removal. It’s funny, cute and sexy all at the same time.”

“Recently I had the pleasure of working with Lada Redstar on a month-long run in Helsinki and I love the cheesecake side of her performances. Lada’s style is very charismatic; she has a very sexy, gentle cheesecake burlesque style and a disarming smile.”

Check out how cute Lada is in this interview!

“Another excellent cheesecake burlesque performer who springs to mind is Ryvita Von Cheese. I think people possibly think of her first as a Compère and Event Producer of The Wet Spot, but if you’ve seen her perform you’ll know how great her cheesecake is – she is very innovative with her ideas too. Like Lada and Bazuka, she knows how to make audiences fall in love with her.”

We asked Anna to tell us how cheesecake burlesque got started and what it’s like as a burlesque performer. Indulge your sweet tooth with a cheesecake burlesque history lesson and part two of this interview!
