Part sex kitten. Part clown. All woman.

Winner of London Cabaret Award 2012: Best Burlesque Performer. Time Out London Cover Star. Hailed by them as “Kick-ass burlesque triple-threat Kiki Kaboom – sexy, funny and smart”. Voted as one of the Top 40 Worldwide and Top 5 UK-based performers by 21st Century in 2012 and 2013. Star of recently released burlesque feature film and cult smash, “Burlesque Assassins”, with Miss Exotic World Winner Roxi D’Lite. Interviewed for Cosmpolitan magazine in 2013 and one of only 7 UK stars to make the coveted “Who’s Who In Burlesque” in the international publication, Burlesque Bible. Star of her own internet TV show: The Kiki Kaboom Show. All this since winning Best Newcomer 2009 at London Burlesque Week.

Trained in theatre and performing arts at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, Kiki is also a skilled vocalist, protégée of Jo King and teacher for the London Academy of Burlesque. A master of stagecraft, Kiki draws on these various disciplines to create effortlessly unique and unforgettable acts. From comic character-based neo-burlesque to classic, sexy striptease with live vocals – and always with her trademark warmth, wit and sizzling sex appeal – Kiki is one of the most versatile and popular performers on the European circuit.

She has been invited to perform in numerous international locations, including Stockholm, Bucharest, Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, Dublin, Zagreb, Paris, Berlin, Helsinki and Milan. Her private client list is vast (including exclusive performances for Maybelline New York and The Household Cavalry Regiment – Her Majesty the Queen’s private regiment); and she has made headlining appearances at the Brit Awards Official After Party, the BBC’s Fun and Filth Cabaret, the IndigO2 and at The Leicester Square Theatre in London’s West End.

What else is there to know about Kiki? She’s a professional attention seeker. An amateur time traveller. And a thief (hearts, minds, drinks). She’s a cheeky, charming charismatic chameleon of the contemporary burlesque scene. And one v-v-v-vivacious vixen.

“Simply sensational, one of the best acts I’ve ever seen” Scott Mills, Radio 1

“Kiki Kaboom is the real deal: warmly engaging, acutely witty, subversively confrontational and hubba hubba hot.”  Time Out

“If Kiki Kaboom were our history teacher, we would probably have paid more attention in class” The Londonist
