Bearcat Betty is a Frederick, Maryland based variety performer, specializing in burlesque and sideshow entertainment. “Habitually voluptuous and rarely ferocious”, she brings humor and vigorous smiling to a stage or dressing room near you. Among her bladewalking and tassel twirling talents, she considers herself a chocolate milk connoisseur and has been in a lifelong battle with top shelves. She’s lavishly unique and unapologetically herself. Bearcat is a tacky treasure in a modern world and has a knack for fabricating wondrous creations from remains, breathing new life into rubbish. In addition to being a performer, she is an artist, a maker, a shaker, not much of a baker, a host, a producer, and an ordained minister.
She is the 2020 overall second runner up PA Burlypicks, 2019 overall Pennsylvania Burlypicks winner, 2018 overall second runner up DC Burlypicks and has worn the titles of All Around Favorite Entertainer, Miss Generosity and Miss Titties from The Lodge, her home venue. Decades of previous award winning experiences include Employee of the Month, Employee of the Quarter, superb attendance, All American Cheerleader, Maryland Distinguished Scholar, and the coveted Putt Putt minigolf trophy at a birthday party in 1989 where she accidently signed “love” on the birthday boy’s card and was teased all day.
Bearcat Betty’s repertoire features classic and neo-Burlesque, as well as sideshow stunts. Exceptionally adequate and efficiently capable, this Dame of Danger can perform rope, chain and straitjacket escapes, bed of nails, ladder of swords, human blockhead, human cutting board, glass walking, animal traps, plate spinning and fire eating/breathing! She can also make balloon dogs, giraffe-like dogs and dogs with abnormally long tails.
Lady Bladie is Frederick, Maryland’s brash beauty. She is a drag and burlesque entertainer, model, windup doll, balloon artist and all around hot mess. Armed with drag inspiration and unapologetic confidence this harlot aims to captivate her audience with her unique special blend of glitter and garbage. She is “Delightfully Crude”, in the cute and charming kind of way! Crowned the 2018 Deadly Diva, Lady Bladie is the dazzling dumpster fire you don’t want to miss!

Lipstick Lamarr is Frederick, MD’s very own punk rock pinup. She lives for unexpected twists on classic burlesque and wants you to ignore that vague sense of dread you have when she takes the stage. Her repertoire of characters includes everything from naughty lunch ladies to Irish fan dancers and Leatherface to most of the current (as of May 2018) Presidential administration. If she leaves you feeling confused and slightly disturbed about being kind of turned on, she’s done her job. Prepare to be seduced in the most delightful way by Lipstick Lamarr!
