Cherie Sweetbottom: The Ambassador of Skin!
Armed with a megawatt smile, chameleon-like shape-shifting abilities, and a posterior that’s been described as “hypnotizing”, Cherie is a professionally trained actress with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre who has been performing for most of her life, and in burlesque since 2011.
She produces House of Sweetbottom, a live music and classic burlesque revue and DC’s premiere nerdy burlesque troupe, the Evil League of Ecdysiasts. She also performs regularly with Naked Girls Reading DC. She was DC’s Best Performance Artist 2016 first runner up in Washington City Paper’s 2016 Best of DC Reader Poll.
From 2013 to 2017, she performed at L’Enfant Cafe’s La Boum Brunch, during which time it was named one of Bravo TV’s top five party brunches in the country, and its late-night counterpart, La Boum Boum Room.
In 2015 and 2016, she toured with Burlesque is Coming (www.burlesqueiscoming.com), the only Game of Thrones burlesque tribute officially endorsed by George R. R. Martin and invited to play at his theatre, Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The tour received international attention from media outlets such as Entertainment Weekly, Playboy, Time, CNN Indonesia, The Telegraph (UK), and more.
Cherie is a core cast member of The Carnivalesque Roadshow, an immersive 1930’s Dust Bowl-era traveling circus experience produced by Gilded Lily Burlesque and Armitage Shanks and featuring guest stars such as the 2012 King of Boylesque Russell Bruner. The Carnivalesque Roadshow has toured the mid-Atlantic, performing in SC, DC, MD, NJ, and VA.
