Fifi La Roux (Part Deux!) on the Irish Burlesque Family, #Queminism, Defining Burlesque, and Vegetarian Burps!

Did you miss the first half of my interview with Fifi La Roux? If so, you’re probably very confused!

Head back to this episode to hear 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.

This week, we’re getting more into the Irish burlesque family, being nice on social media, queminism, defining burlesque, and more – plus, of course, the favorite Pick Your Poison and This Or That sections!

Listen in below, then have a look at all the links to keep up with her on her burlesque journey!

Fifi La Roux is the burlesque clown with a liberal sprinkling of glitter!In Part 2 of her interview with Velvet, Fifi La Roux dives into the current state of Irish burlesque, queminism, vegetarian burps, an Irish boylesque call, & more! Plus, stick around til the VERY end to hear Velvet butcher some Irish Gaelic words!
Trained in aerial arts and circus since 2012, Fifi La Roux turned to Burlesque in 2015, winning the title of the Best Newcomer at the 2015 Belfast Burlesque Festival, and she was one of the Judges’ top 5 finalists at Miss Burlesque Ireland 2016.
Fifi is also the producer of the Emporium Series, a series of quarterly emporiums (springtime, summer, autumn and winter) which combine alternative traders with classic burlesque in Dublin’s favourite vintage cocktail bar, The liquor rooms. 

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!
