The Canary Cage is a brand new night in Liverpool run by my good pals Frank Lebeau Diablo and Phoenix Snow in association with Coal Mine Productions. It takes place at the rather fancy Baby Blue, part of Blue Bar on the Albert Dock. And the opening night was bloody brilliant, even if I do say so myself.
I met Frank and Phoenix at London Burlesque Week where we were competing in the newcomer’s Battle Royale. The few of us performers from outside London seemed to bond quite well, Felicia Noir was also competing and we all seemed to hit it off straight away.
We had a fab line up, including myself, Frank and Phoenix, the incomparable compère Mr Frisk, Felicia Noir, Velma Von Bon Bon and the Liverpool Hilton’s resident singer Mr Alan Cross.
All the acts were fantastic, the night ran fabulously smooth and I got to spend time in what is now my second favourite city. Don’t worry Bristol, you’re still my baby, but y’know…Liverpool is cool! And the accent is just as silly.
I can only see The Canary Cage getting better and better with each month. I feel terribly proud that they chose me to perform at their first night.
