London Burlesque Show

Unique London burlesque show Burlexe returned to its original stomping ground the Shadow Lounge in April for another run of shows.

This time round, Burlexe was a three-woman outing, starring r’n’b singer Kele le Roc as hostess together with London Academy of Burlesque Jo King and long time-collaborator Burlexe-collaborator Chloe Ewart in acting roles, some of which are almost our trademark monologues, some brand new.

Of course we had burlesque from the very best of the UK’s burlesque scene including Kiki Kaboom, Beatrix Von Bourbon, Fancy Chance – check out our amazing gif – and Amber Topaz.

Also performing burlesque was Jo King, who wowed to Madonna’s Like It Or Not while Chloe Ewart’s unhinged debut as Lady Mei thrilled – nobody could believe she’d never burlesqued before.

Read our reviews for our London Burlesque show but below you can get a glimpse of what audiences got to experience…
