Featuring Los Angeles Inspired 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!

Her interests and hobbies are in Costume design; especially lingerie, girdles. She has a fetish for girdles since she was a teenager. In 2009 you may have seen her as the star of the Tinto Brass short film called "Kick The Cock" and lately she has been very busy as a model and burlesque star, as well as a writer. You can also see her in the Terry Richardson book "Wives, Wheels, Weapons." She is a regular reader at the Los Angeles chapter ofNaked Girls Reading and this is her first performance for Peepshow Menagerie.

An actress and tease artist ,making her Peepshow Menagerie debit, Miss Estella Detroit is also a regular in several shows around town and has also performed in our Peepshow To Go-Go shows. She has been featured as a burlesque performer in the AMC television show MAD MEN and even performed in the official MAD MEN burlesque show. She also just happens to be our Peepshow Pin-Up This month too.

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. Apart from a couple of our other shows, he has performed at the Monday Night Tease and with Sealed With A Kiss and we are happy to have her back on Peepshow Menagerie's stage.

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".

Come and see 100 lbs of what is mighty sweet: flashing eyes, how they roll, a disposition like a sugar bowl, rosy cheeks, red hot lips and a million dollars worth of flying hips. Born in Paris, France in 'aught seven, this fiery flapper started her career dancing on cobblestone streets to the tune of an organ grinder with her pet monkey. Soon she found herself in Vaudeville shows, tap dancing on a diving board before she leapt 40 feet into a glass of water! This high diving mistress broke all the port sailors hearts, and continued to do so with millionaires and sheiks alike, after her grand debut in the Folies Berg¸re (much to the dismay and clucking tongues of the upper crust ladies). With her rosy cheeks, red hot lips, and million dollars worth of flying hips, please welcome this prize of beauty: Prix de Beaute'! You can also see Mademoiselle Beaute' play Tin Pan Alley tunes on her ukulele in her band Two-Bit Opera and also performs regularly at the early 20th Century inspired Vaudeville, The Petting Pantry.

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, Beneath The Surface, and Mad Monster Burlesque Pajama Party.

Co-Hosted by:

Since the beginning of Peepshow Menagerie, he has always occupied a dark corner of our venue; well dressed, sharply combed, and watching silently from above. We eventually discovered that his name is Patrick The Bank Robber and when he isn't a burlesque enthusiast, he can often be found on stage reciting Shakespeare, traveling across the country, or just simply robbing banks. After being made at various shows across town, he eventually found himself hosting for shows like Ragdolls Burlesque and the Monday Night Tease as well as producing his own show called Raymond Burl Esq. & The Family Ballyhoo.

Live Music by:

THE GRAVEN play a catchy mix of garage rock with a hint of dark gothic flair. They also feature sometime boylesque star Harry Mirkin on guitar who was also a member of the bands BOB, POPULAR GIRL, and EAR BEYOND. We can't wait to finally have them on our stage for this very special night.
