A classically trained triple threat who ran away to join the burlesque, Diva Darling is a force of nature who’s the perfect storm of high femme and lowbrow. This curvy, queer Beltway bombshell lobbies the audiences of the nation’s capital for radical expansions to existing beauty standards. She was nominated for “Best Burlesque Dancer” in the Washington Blade‘s “Best of Gay DC” awards in 2014 and received two Favorite Performer awards in DC Metro Theater Arts’ “2015 Capital Fringe Honors” for her performances in Vaudevillian Romp and Barenaked Comedy. This velvet-voiced vamp comes by her name honestly when she takes to the mic to fire up a smoky torch song or bring down the house with a showstopper. As a femme-cee, she puts the “imp” back in “imperious” with a mix of wisecracking banter, old-school glam, and the ability to get an audience screaming for more. She writes and produces classic theater/burlesque mashups like the 2017 Capital Fringe hit Tiresias’ Tits, and along with Mindi Mimosa produces and hosts the monthly sex-oriented storytelling open mic Smut Slam DC, the first franchise of Smut Slam International created by artist and former sex worker Cameryn Moore.
