BellaDonna, Her name says it all. This “Beautiful woman” has had a passion for the stage since she was just a little girl in the choir. Transitioning from singing to acting, she’s quickly making herself at home in the world of burlesque, as well as being a self-proclaimed “Drag-dabbler”. Kickstarting her adult dancing career with GBBA, a member of the group formerly known as “The Buxom Belles”, she’s found a home in the south’s burlesque scene with the current troupe, Mayday Cabaret of Johnson City, as well as Black Shawl Cabaret of Bristol. Known for flirtatious floor work, whether she’s sitting, spinning, or splitting, shes sure to cause a stir inside. Calling to the stage, Tennessee’s own BellaDonna Dufraine, 8th wonder of the world, 1st one of Northeast Tennessee.

On a cold winter’s night in 2019 Scarlett was scrolling social media and judging people, as usual, when she came across a burlesque class and though “why the hell not?” She’s been entangled in the fishnets ever since. This sexy southern GILF has danced across stages in TN, GA, NC, KY, MD and the 1st International Booklover’s Burlesque Festival in Portland OR. Scarlett fights for truth, justice, and the right to bare pasties. Rest assured she will continue spreading glitter, sarcasm and good old fashioned nudity as long as her knees hold out.

Grampy is a clean comedic character performed by Phil Ketron. Grampy is a little extreme and over the top. Expect the unexpected with many twist and turns as he provides plenty of laughter, especially for those who are young at heart.

Grampy has performed all over the Southeast and is currently working toward longer sets for bigger venues. He has been selected as a participant in the 2024 Clean Comedy Challenge to be held in July.

Danny Whitson is a professional Magician, Stand-up Comedian, and Actor from Oak Ridge, TN with a passion for magic, comedy, and meeting new faces with every show. For the past 20 years Danny has been entertaining people with cards, coins, ropes, and anything else he can make disappear or crack a joke about. He has performed for celebrities, super bowl champions, and Grammy award-winning artists. Danny has even starred with Kevin McDonald from the hit comedy sketch show Kids In The Hall. He also performs regularly at Harrah’s Casinos and for companies such as Bush’s Baked Bean’s, Waste Connections, Alcon Vision, and AllMeds. You can catch Danny this winter on Amazon Prime in the Comedy horror movie WJHC-AM. He has been featured on iTunes, Spotify, Mental Floss, the Chive, and Blank News Magazine as Knoxville’s Magician. In 2015, Danny helped break and set a new record for the Guinness World Record for the longest comedy show.

SuzE Eliza is a talented stand-up comedian, producer and host based in Kingsport, Johnson City and Bristol, TN. Her unique anecdotal comedy style captivates her audience with her hilarious, relatable and sometimes unbelievable stories, even when touching on darker topics. As an artist, SuzE believes in the power of creativity and laughter to heal and uplift people. Her infectious smile and adventurous spirit make her a joy to be around. SuzE’s risk-taking nature is reflected in her comedy, where she fearlessly tackles a wide range of topics with spontaneity and humor. She got her start at Bristol’s Blue Ridge Comedy club and has since expanded her performances across Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Some of her recent accomplishments include judging comedy competitions, producing and performing in a sold-out Friday the 13th stand-up comedy show, and producing charitable comedy shows to raise donations for a non-profit Veterans Art Center. If you’re looking for a talented and versatile comedian, SuzE Eliza is definitely one to watch.
