Burlesque Hall of Fame competitor Miss Bettie Bombshell shows exactly why she’s one of the best-known and best-loved burlesque performers on the scene. Her finesse and flair are flawless, and she is sassy and sophisticated in equal measure.
- Voicemail UK
The standout performer of the night was, predictably, the enigmatic Bettie Bombshell, a truly epic performer. She is an internationally renowned burlesque star for good reason, and it’s proven every time she stalks onto the stage. There are no half-assed performances from Bettie, they’re full assed, always — and what an ass it is! Every move exudes sexuality and oozes all over the stage. She is precision, liquid motion, and such a natural dancer that it is an honour to witness.
The highlights of Act 2 bookend the performance with Bettie Bombshell as Leo. Bettie Bomshell’s Leo is exactly as her name suggests, a bombshell performance that will leave you captivated and wanting more. In the theme of burlesque, Bettie uses fire twirling sticks that she somehow manages to re-ignite with her own breath, rubs the naked flame on her skin and effortlessly extinguishes the flame with her mouth. If that wasn’t enough, she breaks out some whips to crack away with the music. One thing was for sure, Bettie Bombshell’s Leo had the whole theatre roaring with excitement as she left the stage.

It’s no wonder she’s the best in Australia with her sexy and unapologetic moves she owns the artform outright.
Zodiac Leo, Hercules (Bettie Bombshell) is scintillating in her raunchy fire eating act; she the great warrior, upon freeing the maiden, skins the lion to create an impenetrable armour.
Bettie Bombshell as Hercules who’s fire & roar & burlesque made for dazzling ascension as the constellation Leo; spellbinding.
A benchmark for sheer spectacle.
