This midwest maven got her burly start studying alongside some of St. Louis’s best at Van Ella Studios. In 2011 she debuted her first solo number, ultimately earning a spot in Lola Van Ella’s Bon Bons. Since then, BiBi has delighted audiences across the country, at The Oklahoma City, Kansas City, New Orleans, and Colorado Burlesque festivals, as well as being a veteran of her hometown’s Show Me Burlesque Festival.
In 2017, BiBi marauded across the plains of the US with the Van Ella Bordella, as one of its bawdy casts of harlots on a Van Ella Bordella Wild West Tour. This immersive story of brothel life and the courtesans that serviced the masses brought their debauchery to the stages of Uptown Arts Bar in Kansas City (MO), The Clock Tower Cabaret in Denver (CO), The Gold Room in Colorado Springs(CO) as well as The Palace in Sante Fe (NM). The show also opened up for Sandra Bernhard at The Grandel, back home in St. Louis.
BiBi’s solo credits include shows at The Gay 90’s (produced by Sweet Pea) and Lush (produced by Elektra Cute) in Minneapolis(MN), and The White Rabbit Cabaret in Indianapolis (IN) as a featured performer guest of The Rocket Doll Revue. She’s also an active member of up and coming, diversity focused collaboration, The Quaf Crew.
Sensational and sensuous, salacious and sultry, this South City sister casts her spell with style, with charm, and with a healthy dose of swagger.
