Clown, cabaret star, hair hanger(!) and burlesque performer Fancy Chance has been collaborating with Burlexe since its inception.
Burlesque Night London Actress Fancy Chance
Fancy Chance is one of the original Burlexe show actresses, originally introduced to creative director Howard Wilmot by producer Lara Clifton, she loved the idea of the show and the rest is history.
She originally performed monologues inspired by the inimitable Josephine Baker and Holly Woodlawn – and also featured in the Burlexe films.
She’s also delivered a variety of guest burlesque performances from her famous burlesquing of burlesque, see below to her famous Alice in Wonderland and Star Trek performances.
We didn’t even hold a gun to her head or anything but she says, “The cast has been really great and it has been nice acting as opposed to acting in my burlesque shows.
“Howard is utterly fantastic, it has been lovely getting to know him and the rest of the cast and I really enjoyed The Shadow Lounge. It’s nice to be a part of something that’s a theatre show and a burlesque show and the audiences have been great.”
