Glory Pearl

Miss Glory Pearl is a burlesque maverick. She began performing professionally in 2008, won a Best UK Newcomers award at the 2009 London Burlesque Festival and has since appeared at burlesque festivals and prestigious venues across the globe, including Paris, Milan, Stockholm, Brussels, Melbourne, San Francisco and Las Vegas. She creates genre-defying acts that blend traditional British burlesque, pole dance, aerial circus, clowning and character work with humour, sparkle, and a healthy dose of British self-deprecation. A regular feature of the UK cabaret scene, Miss Pearl is an accomplished compere, stand-up comedian, character comedian, and burlesque and cabaret artist. She produces the London chapter of Naked Girls Reading and in 2014 wrote and produced her first one-woman stand-up comedy show, The Naked Stand Up, which garnered critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has since appeared at the Mimetic Festival, Brighton Fringe Festival, Guildford Fringe Festival, Lambco Fringe, and the iconic Royal Vauxhall Tavern in London, selling out numerous times and gaining her a London Cabaret Award nomination in 2015. 
Glory recently appeared on Late Night Woman’s Hour, discussing nudity and her work, and is never short of an opinion, describing herself as a full-time feminist, something she believes is entirely compatible with taking your clothes off for a living.

GLORY will be performing at the LAUGH YOUR KNICKERS OFF COMEDY CABARET on Friday 29 April and NAKED GIRLS READING on Saturday 30 April.
