It’s that time again, folks, after a summer hiatus we are so excited that Luscious Cabaret is back with a Bang – or should we say a Bang Bang?! Today we’re chatting up with one of our favourite performers (and people), and we’re so excited to see her perform at Luscious again. It’s the queen of Sing and Fling – Bambi Bang Bang!!
Why did you start performing?
Performing was always like a drug to me, the nerves, the adrenaline. Burlesque is no different, that feeling of empowerment and owning the stage is addictive! That’s why I do what I do.
Do you remember your first time on stage?
Like my first, FIRST time? Oh yeah! I have a ridiculously vivid memory of being a tiny little ballerina girl, you know the one that doesn’t know the routine but all the parents still think is adorable?
Which is your favourite act to perform?
I love my “Bad Touch” routine and I’m so happy to be performing it at the Luscious cabaret. It’s such a fun act to do, I get to be silly and sexy on stage whilst also enforcing a little bit of a sing-along!
What sets you apart from other performers?
I’m in a lovely minority on Sing-and-fling performers who sprinkle some comedic sass on their routines.
What do you think is people’s first impression of you?
“Wow, you’re tall.” That’s gotta be the obvious one!
What’s your favourite thing about cabaret?
What’s not to love? It’s a much more inclusive community to any I have been involved with up to now. So much support and sisterhood!
How did you choose your stage name?
Isn’t it obvious? My long gazelle legs? My big doe eyes? My… yeah, that’s a lie. You remember that scene with Bambi on the ice trying to walk? That’s the epitome of how graceful I am.
What’s your next challenge in performing?
I’m currently working on my next act, one that I’ve been passionate about creating for quite some time. I’ll be telling the true story of Medusa, which, despite it being a horrifically tragic tale, will hopefully be quite empowering for audiences. This is going to be really hard for me, as I’m known on stage for being a bit of a goofball and this act requires me to be a little more serious. Fingers Crossed!
You can catch Bambi at Luscious Cabaret on Friday at The Albany in Great Portland Street. You can find out who the rest of the lineup at is and book your place here
