Boobs, King St-Fox, Betty Behave, Bon Bon, Sophia von Syren and more!

The GREAT S.A. Burlesque Express RETURNS in January 2018 for a little sexy soiree at Alexander Upstairs to get you swinging into the new year with a smile on your faces! 

Once again hosted by the notorious Prof. DD Boobs, this adventure promises to be at its bawdiest! 

Beware- the front row is our “splash zone”- so sit your caboose down at your own peril!

Black Orchid has strived to bring nothing but the most authentic burlesque and boylesque we can offer a South African audience. Diva Disastar is not only the headmistress of

Black Orchid's Burlesque Academy, but also fondly dubbed "S.A.'s Original Dame of Burlesque". Having performed across the country and abroad, this bawdy performer has been a key player in the development and encouragement of the artform in South Africa. 

Supported by her phenomenal other half, KING St. FOX, there is no telling what this dynamic duo will produce next!
