Gilded Merkin - Burlesque and Cabaret
Saturday 9 May
7.30pm

EXTRA SHOW DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND!

Established in 2012 at the Glee Club in Nottingham The Gilded Merkin instantly became one of the UK’s biggest cabaret variety shows hosting headline acts to sold out crowds.

The shows success saw it expand to include regular nights in Birmingham and Cardiff as well as appear at events such as the F1 Grand Prix at Silverstone, the National Hot Rod, Custom and American car show, the Summer of Vintage Festival and too many private parties to mention! 

Featuring only the very best international burlesque and cabaret performers, no two shows are ever the same.  Every act is handpicked by Midlands based Burlesque Performer and Producer Scarlett Daggers, the woman behind the Merkin.    

An eclectic mix of old Hollywood glamour, vaudeville, comedy, music, circus and much more, The Gilded Merkin guarantees an unforgettable night of exhilarating entertainment!

“A hugely generous dollop of magical sophisticated glamour…with a delightful twist of ironic British humour."  - John Hess, BBC correspondent 

Full line up:

KIKI DEVILLE
Half singer, half compere, half mathematician. 
Be not bedazzled by her glittering smile, or captivated by her comedic timing, yes, a woman of large 'talents' she may be, but don't let them detract from the incredible voice that lies beneath. Australian born Miss Kiki DeVille (aka Kristianne Robinson) attributes her flawless and polished performances to over 25 years of professional international music industry experience.


ANNA FUR LAXIS
After touring the world as an International Headliner of shows and festivals across Europe, Australia, Asia and America, and reaching the exciting peaks of being named No.5 in the world (Burlesque Top 50 2011) and placing 1st runner up in Las Vegas’ Miss Exotic World contest (Burlesque Hall of Fame 2011), Anna decided to run away with the circus to China where she then spent several years building a secret, illegal burlesque scene, hidden from the eyes of the West behind China’s Great Firewall. In early 2018, definitely not for legal reasons, Anna returned to the UK and now promises to spread her fierce, dynamic, engaging & authentic brand of sexuality far and wide. Oh, and she sometimes throws axes. So be nice. 


SNOOKIE MONO
Daredevil & international swordswallower; Snookie Mono has made a living from playing with fire and running with scissors. Whether he's french-kissing swords, stubbing out big fat Cuban cigars on his tongue, eating flaming torches or simply popping gum whilst crafting balloon poodles; this multi-disciplined artist effortlessly stretches his body to its limits and mixes dangerous stunts with playful, bad boy charm.


MYSTI VINE
Bringing grace, tongue-in-cheek charisma and bold beauty, Mysti is a marvellous maven of Burlesque and a truly hilarious inspiration.


CHI CHI REVOLVER
Born into a circus family and performing since the age of 3 Chi Chi has been a regular on the cabaret scene since 2005 and was one of the first performers in the UK to combine hula hooping and striptease.   She became a world record holder in 2012 for hula hooping whilst hanging upside down from a trapeze!


SCARLETT DAGGERS
The one who makes all this possible... the Mistress of the Merkin. 
This tattooed rock'n'roll redhead will get you hot under the collar with her sizzling stage presence and megawatt smile.   From a flag wielding greaser-girl to a B movie Cobra Queen and even Robin Hood Scarlett loves to inject a sense of fun into her femme fatale.
With over 14 years experience on the cabaret circuit Scarlett has performed in London, Paris, Milan and Rome and produces regular shows in Nottingham, Derby, Birmingham, Cardiff and Leeds.
