Bourgeois Betty is a premiere diva and alcoholic
extraordinaire currently located in the Atlanta area. She was a founding
member of the former Augusta Burlesque at Le Chat Noir in Augusta,
Georgia and helped start the Dirty South Burlesque and Cabaret.
Betty joined the burlesque scene in January 2010 after an almost ten
year break from her minimal stage exposure while attending Florida State
University. The years in between FSU and her inevitable burlesque debut
were filled with many hours of Napoleonic study, binge drinking, and
supporting the nation's war on terror as a member of the United States
In 2011 Betty took the burlesque world by storm
winning Best Variety and Most Humorous at the first ever Southern Fried
Burlesque Fest and then returned in 2012 to win Best Duet with Dutchy
Tulips...the 2013 SFBF ended in failure to which she remains bitter.
Betty currently folds towels at Target putting her multiple degrees
to good use and cohabitates with her magical lover and evil cat.
