"Ha, ha, ha" - Audience quote
Betty Blue Eyes
Winner of the British Crown at the World Burlesque Games 2016, Miss Betty Blue Eyes is a burlesque performer who has been creating tales of the unexpected for burlesque and cabaret audiences since 2009. She is a comedy cabaret chameleon with unique acts filled with curious characters, quirky storytelling and glamorous comedy. From the unexpected twist of her Reverse Strip to the downright flamboyance of her signature award winning act Behind the Candel-a-bra (a homage to Las Vegas legend Liberace), Betty has a guise for any occasion.
(And before you ask...yes her eyes are blue).
Always absurd, often glamorous, sometimes hysterical, FooFoo has been hoofing around for over 30 years.
Dancer, choreographer, producer, singer, mum and business owner, FooFoo is the founder of Cardiff Cabaret Club. Since 2008 she has been creating shows and classes where performers of all ages and experiences are welcome.
The dynamite burlesque countess with music in her soul, rum in her veins and legs for days!
Oola is a proud member of FooFoo LaBelle's burly family at Cardiff Cabaret Club where she performs as a soloist and as part of the amazing, inclusive showgirl troupe.
