Bearcat Betty is an old soul, named in irony for not being a feisty tempered lady as the name “Bearcat” would imply. She is habitually voluptuous and rarely ferocious. A vaudevillian overachiever, known for her yearning to acquire skills she cannot use during her daytime professional life, Bearcat Betty continues to see the world with awe and a desire to learn. Her sideshow stunts bring the audience to the edge of their seats in excitement and fear, while her wit and charm entertain and delight through her sideshow, burlesque and variety acts. Among her palate of performance arts: Ladder of Swords, Bed of Nails, Glass Walking, Human Blockhead, Fire Breathing, Fire Eating (temporarily out of order due to fancy orthodontia), Plate Spinning, Poi, Hoop, and Rope Escapes
(Performances range from family/kid friendly to adults only.)

This brash beauty is a Bio-Queen, model, Entertainer, windup doll ,and all around self-proclaimed hot mess. She is proficient in the art of being “Delightfully Crude” and Shameless! Bladie takes inspiration from Drag Queens, The Vaudevillians, and her Idols Lucille Ball and Madonna. She can’t find an 80’s song she doesn’t like, and enjoys to watch all forms of Burlesque and Drag. She enjoys blending 80’s & 90’s pop with classic burlesque styles and themes. Lady Bladie is truly a drag queen at heart and her performances reflect that. Three words to sum up Bladie are: Unicorns, Glitter, & Hot-Garbage
(Performances range from family/kid friendly to adults only)

Our very own punk rock pinup, Lipstick Lamarr is perhaps the only Irish dancing burlesque performer and possibly the biggest Ramone’s fan. This appealing redhead has smarts and sass! She enjoys clever twists on classic burlesque and wants you to expect the unexpected! When she’s not dazzling you with her lipsticked smile, she can be found crafting magnificent purses from vinyl records or learning the bass guitar. Lipstick Lamarr has never once injured an audience member with her Leatherface act despite the dangerous use of a perfectly safe fake chainsaw. Best known for her burly antics set to punk rock music and her fan teasing performances! Also, she does not care about your boner. If she leaves you confused and slightly disturbed, she feels she has done her job.

Presenting! The herald of harlots, the barker of burlies, the master of disaster and ceremonies: Commodore Bailey!
As MC, Commodore Bailey keeps our evening on track while derailing into comedic delights that keep the crowd giddy throughout the night. Consider yourself lucky if you’ve witnessed a peek at his sultry sock garters. He has a taste for Dandy & Dapper fashions. His suspenders are becoming a work of art with his outrageous vintage style pin collection and his royally awesome pants are loved all around! Drawing inspiration of the barkers of the past (1920s-1950s), he lets the audience know that “If they’re applauded, you’re rewarded!”

Johnnie Moxie is a supporter of body positivity and has encouraged many women, not only by her fabulous performances, but her outlandishly fun attitude. Her fondness for curvy Fords of the fifties is matched only by your fondness for her curves. If Johnnie Moxie has any say in it, her lingerie collection may achieve record status. Inspiration draws from Ursula the Sea Witch, Divine and The Militant Baker, none of which are burlesque dancers but who cares! Johnnie Moxie also a published poet and culinary enthusiast! You can pay her to show up to your house and cook you dinner in her underwear, because Johnnie HATES pants!

Scarlett Ropeburn, of immaculate birth, will scorch your heart and heal it with a blown kiss. Her brand of burlesque is a grab bag of pop, rock, glam, and grotesque with a surprise or two thrown in. This quick-witted beauty spends her time in clubs sipping her vodka and Redbull, ready with a playful taunt, a lewd joke, or a wink and a smile. When not performing, Scarlett enjoys spending her time sleeping and eating. Favorite movie: Roman Holiday. Favorite food: Nachos. Favorite Burlesque Star: Imogen Kelly.

Cinderfella captures the audience and delights them with his character changing appearances. He is a rising star who takes great care with his role in the boylesque world and finds inspiration through others as he develops his stage personality. He’s been sighted causing commotion with poi and hoop. He is an aspiring herpetologist who breeds poison dart frogs and volunteers at the National Aquarium!

Pepper Jack is one of Frederick’s Dapper Dangers. Pepper Jack has worked as an art model in the Frederick area and an underwear model in his home. He can be found opening doors for ladies and hogging the dance floor. When he is not getting hot in the spotlight, he can be found twirling his mustache as he plots an evil railroad bondage scheme. His charm is vast and only outweighed by his fondness for nudity. He is too sexy for his shirt. His is so sexy it hurts. Pepper Jack is married to the beauteous burly Bearcat Betty, one of the reasons he began his boylesque journey, the other being his enjoyment of writhing around in quality attention.

If HoneyBee Burlesque is a governing body, Grate Scott! is our poet laureate. Master of the fine art of Lyrical Burlesque, he brings culture and humor to our shows with his spoken word. He enjoys watching all forms of burlesque and enjoys joining the audience during our shows. Grate Scott! joined us after being crowned victor of a dance off at our first produced show, winning the crowd over the other men in boas. We add the “!” to his name to emphasize his excellence and our appreciation, despite any confusion it may cause your grammatical reading flow. A wise performer, Grate Scott! keeps the ladies of the crowd in mystery on whether or not his pants will vanish during his act.

Bringing “Queerlesque” to the stage, Roxy is a fantastical theatrical asset to Honeybee Burlesque. Roxy is known to amuse and astound , it will be impossible not to be entertained! Performing such characters like Dr. Frankfurter and Harley Quinn, Roxy leaves you a bit confused and wanting more!

Denis the Menace
Lead Stage Hand & Member since Sept 2014
Denis the Menace doesn’t have a job title, because he’s up for any task. You never know where you may see Denny lurking in our shows. We use him for his musical talents, his accents and his quips. One of our members uses him for his. Miss Johnnie Moxie and Denis the Menace are a duet in life as well as vocally. Denny is a masterful mechanic and mastermind. He can often be found blessing knowledge upon the ignorant. If he’s not handling his wrench, he may be found eating buffalo chicken strips or playing with blowtorches. Denny may hold the world record for unhooking the most bras with one hand in under a minute. Or that may have been some other guy. He sure does look good in a wig and dress though!

Necro Nancy is our goth temptress, often seen with snakes in her hair. This asylum inmate can hypnotize you with her buxom bosom. A local scare and haunt professional, it’s no surprise that her favorite burlesque to perform and watch is “Grotesque-Burlesque”. She draws inspirations from strong-intelligent-independent ladies, like Amanda Palmer, Emilie Autumn, and Maria Brink. Necro channels Kathy Bathes and other classy “Scream Queens”. Her performances are not for the faint of heart, be cautious and don’t make eye contact with this voluptuous Victorian!
Necro Nancy has won “Best Female Scare Actress” three years in a row! Be sure to Look for her in the Barn of Bedlam at Screamland Farms!

Tina Sweettart stole the time between acts with her tidy tease as our very first stage kitten. Fans couldn’t get enough of her sweets, so she now performs while extending a helpful hand as a mighty mentor to our other pickup artists. Tina was once a shy-violet, until she lived under Lady Bladie’s influence. Best know for mixing 80s hair metal and burlesque, while wearing cute honeybee costumes, Tina is a true tease! No one can pick up burly droppings as good as she can! You have to see it to believe it!
