Bearcat Betty is a Frederick, Maryland based variety performer, specializing in burlesque and sideshow entertainment. Habitually voluptuous and rarely ferocious, she brings humor and vigorous smiling to a stage or dressing room near you. Among her bladewalking and tassel twirling talents, she considers herself a chocolate milk connoisseur and has been in a lifelong battle with top shelves. She’s lavishly unique and unapologetically herself. Bearcat is a tacky treasure in a modern world and has a knack for fabricating wondrous creations from remains, breathing new life into rubbish. In addition to being a performer, she is an artist, a maker, a shaker, not much of a baker, a host, and an ordained minister.
Bearcat is the 2019 overall Pennsylvania Burlypicks winner
Sass La Fraise finds artistic freedom in burlesque as it is a medium where all bodies are celebrated and femmes are given space to be badass and powerful, which is why she often incorporates weaponry into her acts. She is the Fierce! Queer Pin-Up Queen 2019 and is a pride feature in the Fierce! Queer Performing Arts Festival. Sass is an assistant manager of the Velvet Hearts! Pittsburgh. She is full of sugar, and spice, and everything knives!
