Fifi had so much goodness that I had to split it up into TWO separate episodes!!
Or maybe I just like hearing her accent so much that I wanted to keep it going as long as possible…. PLUS, as it turns out, we’re birthday twins! We both celebrated our birthdays this last Tuesday, April 4th! (Though I’m a taaaaad bit older 😉 )
This week, we’re chatting all about her journey from performance and circus artist into the big, bad world of burlesque… plus a bit about the Irish burlesque scene, the importance (and joy?! really??) of failure, getting your nose smashed in on your 21st birthday, and more.
Check out the second half of our interview here to get further in depth on the Irish burly family, #queminism, defining burlesque, and vegetarian farts! 😉
Listen in below, then have a look at all the links to keep up with her on her burlesque journey!

This lady really did run away with the circus (no seriously, she’s travelled with the Kelly Miller Circus in the States!) and after seeing her perform you might want to go with her!
Here are all of the links to things we mention during this episode, including how to get a hold of Fifi if you want to learn more!
