Returning after a sold-out first year, and this year as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Burlesque Idol will be storming the stage with some of the city's top performers and some of the world's leading cabaret artists as judges. Expect the unexpected and make sure to book early!

An intimate and decadent evening out, the show features both deluxe VIP cocktail and show-only options, as well as a best dressed competition, raffle, a two hour burlesque extravaganza and as always - your vote for who should make it to the top!

Created to help support emerging talent, Burlesque Idol is a high-energy and deliciously entertaining evening, jam packed with talent, humour and audience participation. Every show features a dazzling array of rising burlesque talents, a comedian host and 3 judges comprised of burlesque promoters, producers, and world-renowned burlesque artists.

Burlesque Idol is excited to announce it's largest Australian tour after two great sold out years in 2014 and 2015! With plans for nine cities across the country, we're gearing up for the biggest and best tour yet!

History of the Show:
Burlesque Idol was founded by Lola LaBelle in 2010 in London, where it continues to run in the city's prestigious West End under the creative direction of Miss Tempest's Rose's House of Burlesque. With 6 years in London, shows in New York City, Boston, Los Angeles (and psst! a national US tour in 2016 afoot), and now a third national tour of Australia, Idol is pleased to be amongst the world's largest burlesque competitions, and the most international.

What to Expect:
Expect to see some of the country's top performers showcasing their most unique acts. From glamorous vegas-inspired showgirls, to comediennes who will have the whole room laughing, to poets, opera singers, and so much more. Burlesque Idol celebrates all forms of burlesque, creating a night as entertaining as it is enticing for it's audience.

As a guest you can also expect a best dressed competition (please see our Dress To Impress page), door prizes from our sponsors, and most importantly a vote for who you think should go home with the lucky prize package! The winner is chosen from a 70% audience, 30% judges vote.

While every artist is a winner in our book, the one who takes the prize that night will go home with a fabulous array of gifts, including a professional photo shoot (valued from $500-$1000), champagne, crown and tools to take their career to the next level.
