Always remember, safety first!
BurpsTheClown of LunaticFringeSideshow and OddlyDrawnCircus!
This fearless and daring clown queen of flames has been thrilling audiences with shocking, fiery and comedic acts for the last seven years. She is an award-winning graphic designer and illustrator and a professional fire manipulation, sideshow and variety performer. She holds a B.F.A. in graphic design from The University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She is an aspiring flame effects operator and wants to earn licensure in her state.
She and her husband Squeezit The Clown are the founders of their own two-clown show, LunaticFringeSideshow and founding members of OddlyDrawnCircus. Both troupes are Lafayette Louisiana's first and only actively performing sideshows. They have gone to perform at various festivals, private events, concerts and theatrical productions. Burps' proudest moment was performing with Squeezit The Clown in March 2019 at the exclusive VIP presentation showcase at The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny (New Orleans, LA). She pulls inspiration from Circus Contraption, Insectivora, Squidling Brothers Circus Sideshow and The Jim Rose Circus.
