    COVID diaries, Day 6 - Imogen Kelly - Just a little tumble weed.

    In this special broadcast Tash & Bettie are recording from the comfort of their own self isolation stations. That's correct it's Covid - 19 Global Pandemic times, and your gals are backstage, pushing on heels first with wine in hand!

    This week we had the honour of chatting to Australia's only Miss Exotic World. That's right folks, she is Australia's queen of burlesque... literally. She has the crown to prove it! From living through the AIDS epidemic, to being a club kid in London, to starting a family back in Australia whilst being an in demand showgirl this woman has done it all. This is hands down of the most fascinating episodes we have ever recorded, and we can't wait for you to hear her story. It's the iconic, Imogen Kelly.

    But first get to know us!

    Miss Bettie Bombshell is the current Miss Burlesque Australia, she's performed at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas - 3 times AND she's a kick ass producer (The After Hours Cabaret Club). Of course it wouldn't be friends without her best pal - cabaret wineo, MC and award-winning artist Tash York. Together the two have sold out 5 star shows in Edinburgh, Adelaide, Melbourne AND have been kicked out of places you can only dream of.

    It's a pretty great gig being able to chat to one of you best pals, who happens to be one of the most talented cabaret artists, musicians & musical directors in Australia (We really mane the world but we don't wanna seem too braggy), whilst sipping on wine from our new sponsor Naked Wines (that was a blatant brag), and find out about that time our guest got an actual falconer in to deal with a pigeon problem OR how she made it back into Australia with just 2 hours to spare before they shut the borders. It's the cabaret legend & icon, Victoria Falconer!

    This week we had the pleasure of chatting to one of that hardest working gals in the biz. She is one of Perth's (and soon to be Brisbane's) most in demand drag performers, with a string of titles and awards under her lace front. She is Miss Burlesque Australia 2018, and actually handed over the crown to our very own Bettie Bombshell in 2019, how bloody adorable! She can outdrink, out dance & out prance us all, it's Scarlet Adams!

    We unfortunately had a guest cancel at the last minute, so we scrolled around Facebook and found someone that was online. We found Reuben Kaye... an international superstar that has graced many random bedrooms all around the globe!

    It really is hard to write a jazzy intro for this artist, because he is one of the greatest entertainers in the world. A true cabaret icon, MC extraordinaire, writer, comedian with the longest legs in the biz! Reuben has taken the world by storm with his one of a kind persona, and has even managed to bribe his way onto Channel 4 in the UK. There is no one else quite like Reuben Kaye, and honestly that's probably a really good thing. We chat about COVID-19 and how it's helped us realise that boxed wine is a totally acceptable form of alcohol, as well as Reuben's latest project UN-WINE-D! The only guided meditation with a wine pairing.

    We had the absolute pleasure of chatting with a long time friend, and a true icon of the cabaret, burlesque, comedy & circus worlds! We casually talk about the time a thruple of boomers interrupted her show with a good old fashioned, in the audience finger bang, how the global pandemic has effected her life both on and off stage, and the importance of finding performance spaces that let you make mistakes. Because after all, that is how we grow.
