Chance is now the former reigning Alternative Miss
World as well as London’s Top Tranny
2010!!! Hilarious, glamorous, and exuberantly irreverent, the diminutive Fancy Chance is the undisputed comic spectacle of the UK burlesque/variety/vaudeville circuit. She is one of the rare breed of circus performers who hangs by her hair and can be seen dragging it up as Prince on many occasion. She is also actively contributing and creating performance art pieces for UK and international events.
Hailing from a background of cabaret, theatre and performance art, in 2001 she was brought
into “nouveau burlesque” by the infamous Miss Indigo Blue, founding
member of BurlyQ: A Queer Cabaret and former Burlesque Hall Of Fame Queen of Burlesque.
Fancy’s goal is to perform acts
that dazzle and delight with comic characters and satire to the max
whether goose stepping as Kim Jong Il or stripping down to tasseling sensation! She’s produced
and directed the sell out show “BurlyQ Revue” in 2005 and “BurlyQ
Pageant” in 2006 as one of the first runs of a Neo burlesque show in Europe. She is a former member of the Fire Tusk Pain Proof Circus and French Kicks Can-Can and
continues to develop her own infectious mixture of comedic
vaudeville and ecdysiast entanglements.
