Come out to No-Tell at Debonair Social Club tonight for an evening if sideshow, burlesque, and fire! Tonight’s line up consists of Shana Vaughan-Gabor, Feli Fury, hooper extraordinaire Michelle Bell, special guest Franki Markstone (on tour), and myself.

Debonair was voted the best mid-week break for Burlesque by the Chicago Reader and one of the top 5 craziest parties in Chicago by the Thrillist.

Tonight I will be performing my Blockhead act. (Bottom left photo by Louis Fitch). I love the expression on the mens’ faces in the picture at the bottom right from my recent blockhead performance at the other Elgin Art Space with Cirque de la Femme. I live for that!
