Featuring BURLESQUE By:

Miss Angie Cakes has been performing in night clubs from East to West Coast since the late 1990's. By day, she's a Fashion Designer for a local clothing company in Los Angeles. At night, the stage is her second home. She also makes her own costumes and accessories and will be launching her very own line soon. This little cookie loves all things sweet, (especially cake!). She's a cupcake cutie who spreads her frosting where ever she goes. With just 2 cups of sugar, a little spice, & a pinch of glitter, she'll bake up the hottest show in town!

Belle Morte Baudelaire was born on the same day as the poet Baudelaire, which she finds amusing. Being severely bi-coastal, she performs at various clubs in LA and NYC, models for latex/corset clothing companies and select photographers, and harkens back to the old days of large feather fans, which she makes herself, and fine costumes/corsets, custom work from various designers. She is also a milliner. She has performed in such shows as the Monday Night Tease and Pinchbottom Burlesque. On this night she brings you a particular burlesque presentation of a fetish that certainly must affect her fans who are more than happy to follow her around.

It's been said they saved William Castle's brain and we know it to be true: One stormy night in the basement of the haunted honkytonk on the edge of town, they put that brain into a girl made from bits of showgirls, flappers, dames, dolls, and molls. Fed with electricity and a steady diet horror films, musicals, and the souls of men that girl became...Holly Go Darkly. She has performed with Monday Night Tease and Sealed With A Kiss and we are happy to have her back on Peepshow Menagerie's stage and as this month's "Peepshow Pin-Up."

At a recent show for Red Snapper's Sassy Classy Review, Fine Arts L.A. said of her, "Ms. Jessabelle Thunder, who's David Lynch-esque number made me realize the hypnotizing effect of such dances." Jessabelle loves the art of dance and was a fan of burlesque before she decided to give it a try herself on stage and the audiences have been loving it since she did. She has performed with us before and has also performed at the MONDAY NIGHT TEASE and at THE BEVY, among others. Don't miss her in this show because you'll be kicking yourself later when all your friends are talking about it!

She knows what she's got and knows how to use it, as they say. She also says she loves being in front of a camera and playing with her kitty cats.

Pepper Le Pew is the stinker that steals your car keys so you can never find them. The first rekindling of her love of the limelight came in the form of a tawdry affair with the Eclectic Company Theatre in North Hollywood, California. There she produced and starred in the Eclectic Company Theatre's Xmas Cabaret in the winter of '09. Not long after, Crystal Swarovski found her crying over a pair of pasties and offered her a part in Kubrilesque. Where Pepper performed with many talented ladies of the Burlesque scene in February. The Eclectic Company Theater Xmas Cabaret was revived for the holiday season as the 'Traveling Carnival Freakshow' and is running right now. Keep an eye on your car keys.

The sweet and petite treat known as Miss Pinky Petite hails originally from Boston where she was a member of THE BOSTON BABYDOLLS and even performed with them at the 2006 Miss Exotic World pageant. In 2007 she moved to Los Angeles and quickly found a place near the beach and a place in the Los Angeles Burlesque Scene. She has performed at VICTORY VARIETY HOUR, SHIMMY & SHAKE, PIRATE BURLESQUE PRESENTS, and the MONDAY NIGHT TEASE. She was also the coverstar of the first "Chris Beyond's Bootleg Stag Party and has appeared on the cover of No-Fi "Magazine"

Spy Kitten is the cat's meow! An entertainer, muse and artist extraordinaire, Kitten dreams of the days when a gal could join up with a vaudeville troupe and travel around having adventures that were sure to include Gene Kelly and tap dancing. Originally from Denver, this sassy cupcake was considering the life of a gypsy, before serendipitously settling in Los Angeles in 2010. She started modeling in 2007 and soon realized how much she enjoyed modeling and working with talented photographers to bring a vision to life. A year later, she did her first pin up style photo-shoot and it opened up a whole new land of wonder and enchantment. That wonder and enchantment included burlesque and other types of performance arts. Kitten studied burlesque with the lovely Vivenne VaVoom and delighted in a class or two at Studio L'amour. She has already been one of our readers for our Los Angeles edition of Naked Girls Reading and after recently making her burlesque debut elsewhere, she is making her Peepshow debut on our stage on this night.

Vamp Lorraine came to this mortal coil from the union between Vampira and Bela Lugosi. When she is not lurking in the cemetary with her pet Tarantula Lydia, she can be found shopping for shoes, tight-lacing corsets or tantalizing Los Angeles burlesque audiences. You may have seen her perform at Bordello before with Courtney Cruz and in our shows such as Merrie Maladies and Mad Monster Burlesque Pajama Party.

Featuring A Special Guest Baggy Pants Comedy Appearance from:

Doc And Stumpy celebrate the golden age of burlesque and the vaudeville routines that are often forgotten in most burlesque shows. They have been dazzling audiences in Las Vegas and Hollywood with their performances at The Burlesque Hall Of Fame and the Monday Night Tease. If you are a true fan of the history of burlesque, you'll understand why they fit right in to our show and we are very excited and lucky that they have donated their time and talent to opening this year's annual charity show.

Live Music & Comedy by:

Helping to keep Vaudeville alive in the modern burlesque circuit, the chatty and singing ukulele playing Mr Snapper and ever-silent but deadly Mr. Buddy bring their years of stage experience to our own stage to entertain all of you looking in at us through our invisible monkey bars Multi-instrumentalist Mr. Snapper and comedy-savant Mr. Buddy have entertained audiences from Hollywood to...North Hollywood.
