STARRING Edmonton's Beau Creep! An interdisciplinary performance artist, host and producer, Beau has garnered international attention; appearing on stages across Canada, USA, and Europe as well as received numerous awards for his over-the-top stage shows. Combining the satire and “punk-factor” of neo-burlesque with the effervescence and sophistication of classic striptease, he uses his background in improv-theatre, clown, and sideshow to paint elaborate commentaries on pop culture and current socio-political issues. He firmly believes that he would’ve run away to join the circus had he not been too busy being raised by drag queens and showgirls but his worlds were meant to collide and he has become his own fabulous three-ring spectacle.
Joined by House of Hush performers: LeTabby Lexington, Scarlett Von Bomb, and Violette Coquette.
