On a jaunt out to see Clocktopus Cabaret with Mr Delicious back in December, Little Lady Luscious spotted the up and coming Olivia Jannesson.  We love an act with a ukulele, I mean who doesn’t, right?  We are looking forward to Olivia sharing  what she has been working on.  It’s sure to bring a smile to your face.  If you’re ready to join in the luscious fun this Friday go ahead and get booking via the link below.

Want learn a bit more about the fabulous Olivia then read on for what she does for fun, how she chose her stage name, her love for cabaret and what’s the craziest moment she’s experienced on stage …

When you have a day off, what do you do for fun?

I enjoy the green grass, and the fresh air by the water, doing some yoga and listening to music, spending time with the people I love. Sometimes also just enjoying my own company and exploring, I love a good adventure!

How did you choose your stage name?
Well I guess it’s just my name. I’ve learned to own it.

What’s the craziest moment you’ve experienced as a performer?
That’s a tough one – most of my experiences have been really good and I’ve just loved the thrill!

What do you love most about the cabaret community?
The acceptance and the love that everyone gives, it’s so beautiful and welcoming!

Today we meet Paulus … again.  Our gorgeous host has been with us since September and before that they have popped into Luscious Cabaret many times to try out new songs.

We particulary loved the month they came to Luscious as part of Nasty Blouse and played the Farrow & Ball game.  We highly recommend you come visit Luscious Cabaret and share in the love of Paulus (they even have a brooch that says love on their jacket).

So what is it that Paulus does for fun?  How did the Paulus stage name come about? What is it that they love about cabaret?  Only one way to find out and that’s to read on …

When you have a day off, what do you do for fun?

I am currently in the throes of making candles out of old bits of candle that did not burn to the bottom. I’ve got a bucketful.  Soon the trees in my garden will bloom with plums and pears and I shall start harvesting them for jams and chutneys, and the rose petals from my garden will all need drying and turning into pot pourri come Autumn.  That, and world domination, obvs.

How did you choose your stage name?

I was nicknamed Paulus by a girlfriend (yes, I was shocked too!) at the age of 13.  Fast-forward 30 years and I discover that I shared the name with a French Music Hall performers from the 1800s who was very popular in old London taaaahn. So, it seemed like fate.

What’s the craziest moment you’ve experienced as a performer?

I did a gig once in the late 90s where all the performers were paid handsomely, treated fairly, nobody heckled and we all were in bed by 10pm, sober.  That was pretty crazy.

What do you love most about the cabaret community?

We’re misfits. We gather together in this clearing we call cabaret having discovered that the other paths and walkways in the forest were too prescriptive as to who could join.  We dance and sing and celebrate our lack of conformity in this clearing in the woods.

It will take a superhero to save us from what is happening in UK politics.  With this in mind we decided we needed some superhero powers to inspire us and get us ready for Luscious Cabaret next week.  Our performers are already heroes on stage but if they had a super power what would it be?  Little Lady Luscious would want the power to transport from one place to the next.  The four flights of stairs up to her flat would be much easier manage, and think of all of those people she could save from oncoming London traffic.  The possibilities are endless.  Enough about Luscious what super power would our Magnificent Ten performers want …

Fully April Line Up

Bolly Ditz Dolly

I love this question! I ‘d want the power to build, kind of like in the lego movie when everyone starts creating with objects around them and everyone has a good time! I’d love to build the bridges that a toxic world has tried to break down, I want to build glitter shelters, crazy sculptures, espresso machines and a 4×4 box wall around Trump, sealed with maybe a letterbox to post facts . The possibilities are endless!

Dolly Master

Zee Zee Stardust 

My power would be Mimicry (why have one power ,when you can take everyone else’s powers)

Mimicry

Ms Larissa Thorne

I’d like the power to speak with animals because, to be frank, people really get on my tits.

Allan-Dixon-animal-Whisperer

Carmen Mon Oxide

Superpower? Not bothered about a superpower but I do love a good cape! Actually I’ll have flying please. Always wanted to arrive onto stage by air!

Flying Firebird

Miss Suzy Saucepot

If I had super power it would be to literally save the planet from the human race who are destroying wildlife, nature and other human beings!

Eco warrior

Diva Regina

The power of Mind Control so I could make Theresa May cancel Brexit, any idea how I can develop that?!

Professor_X_by_JJusko - Mind Control

Kiki Mellék

I already have a super power Bibshkis! I defy the law of nature. I’m ageless Darlings – that’s the best super power to have. That and a psychic nipple!

Sparkly nipple

We seem to be missing a few superpowers.  We’ll be chasing them up and updating the post to complete our Magnificent Ten.  In the meantime you can book your tickets for a ‘Super Powered’ Cabaret in London on Friday 5th April via the button below …

The Luscious motto is to have fun!  We have fun in the classes, on stage and we have fun at Luscious Cabaret.  We thought we would ask our awesome acts what do they do for fun off stage …

Belle De Beauvoir

This fabulous lady is taking the burlesque world by storm and only graduated from the Cheek Of It! Burlesque school less than one year ago.  So with such a busy schedule what does do for fun?

“My favourite thing to do offstage is to take self care time! A rose water bubble bath with some old vintage movies and a glass of Prosecco never does me wrong!”
Paulus
On the 2nd March our host is returning to the TV for the second series of All Together Now.  That must be a fun show to work on, but Paulus rarely stands.  Could this be because he is hard to impress or he just doesn’t know how to have fun …
“I have not had fun since 1997 when I got caught in a lift with a hula hoop salesman.”
Mimi Sugar Pill
Our next new performer is the fabulous Mimi Sugar Pill.  Graduating from The House of Burlesque Academy in November this impressive woman goes from one extreme to the other …
“I would say I have two extremes of the spectrum – you will either find me glammed up & dancing through the night, or in my dressing gown indulging in my unhealthy obsession with Candy Crush.”
Miss Cherry On Fire
The delectable Miss Cherry on Fire is always having a party on stage, but she likes to keep her fun time off stage pretty simple …
“Drink prosecco!”
Cerise Rei
This performer is one firecracker on stage and we can’t wait to introduce her to our Luscious audience.  Dance is her passion but is there something else she loves more?
“Dancing is honestly when I’m having the most fun, it means the world to me or if I’m sleeping because I love sleep! I’m a bit like a cat.”
We’ll be revealing more fun from our Luscious Line Up via our Facebook and Instagram pages.  If this has inspired you to have some fun away from the day job join us on Friday 1st March and The Albany Great Portland St.  You can grab your tickets from Design My Night via the button below.
