Miss If-N’-Whendy, being a poor orphan, was dropped on the doorstep of a French convent sometime in the mid-eighties. A rebel from the start, the nuns couldn’t wait to be rid of little Whendy, who could always be found blaspheming with the holy water and teaching the other orphans how to bump n’ grind. When she came of age, Whendy was booted from the convent and set forth to shimmy her way across the world seeking all manner of seedy venues and dark cabarets. She made her home on the Barbary Coast and has been shakin’ it around the Bay Area for 5 years. She has performed in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Oakland, Los Angeles, and at Viva Las Vegas. She also co-produces a monthly burlesque show, DIVA or Die Burlesque, with her partner-in-sparkly-crime Red Velvet.
In the not-so-distant past she was the shyest of all the wallflowers, but she peeled herself right of that wall for your libidinous pleasure. You’re welcome.
Onstage she embodies classic glamor and edgy weirdness. Her irreverent humor and tongue-in-cheek style make her a true pleasure to behold! Inquiring minds desired some Whendy trivia, so we set a few questions for her to answer. See below.
Yours in Delicious Voyeurism,
This is where Whendy gives us some Fun Facts….
-I’m a trained dancer, began at the age of 2. Ballet, tap, jazz, some aerial circus arts and the bump n’ grind. And when I say “trained”, I mean I learned the rules and take great pleasure in breaking them.
-I am a proud Crazy Cat Lady. My two idiot fur-children are Buckles T. and LadyFace. Don’t judge.
-I often have a bottle of fake blood in my purse. You know, just in case.
-Special skills include: sailor knots, MIG welding, crafting and painting like a BOSS, cat wrangling, ambidextrous-ness, winning spelling bees and making some fucking delicious risotto.
