About Clara Cupcakes
Clara Cupcakes has been performing burlesque and comedy since 2007, starting out with the acclaimed Sugar Blue Burlesque in Perth, Western Australia. She draws inspiration from the vaudeville acts of the 1920s, the comedians of the silent film era.
Combining madcap her madcap energy with authentic-ish jazz dance, circus, fart noises clowning and old fashioned sensibilities, she derived her own unique and quirky style of burlesque and surrealism comedy.
Her critically acclaimed debut solo show, “The Merchant of Whimsy”, was nominated for the prestigious Golden Gibbo award at the 2015 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Her shows have quickly become cult and critical favourites with Hot Patootie nominated for Best Comedy at Fringe World in 2016 and The Worst again nominated for The Golden Gibbo in 2017 and was the recipient of the Adelaide Artist Fund. She is a fixture on the Australian comedy and cabaret circuits.
She has been a teacher at Bottoms Up! Burlesque School, one half of the vaudeville duo Milk and Cookies, a writer for the television show “Live on Bowen” and a core member of The Big Hoo-Haa, Melbourne’s longest-running improv comedy troupe.
