A classic cocktail of Jack Black, a dash of James Dean, and whole lotta Gatsby, Oliver Gentleman is over 6 feet of classic looks combined with tailored appeal. Always the consummate host, he greets audiences of all types with his warm, Southern approach that makes everyone comfortable. When he’s not charming the audience, he’s not afraid to don any persona to add both comedy and sass in burlesque numbers. Offstage, he is a king at karaoke, and an avid collector of amazing socks.

Fearlessness is a theme near and dear to Kat Asstrophy’s heart. When she studied at an ashram to become a yoga teacher in 2014, she learned the lesson that vulnerability can be a spiritual strength. It was that lesson that planted the seed for her love of burlesque— and the courage to share herself and her art onstage. She started with Candybox Revue in 2015 as a Candy Striper and continues to be grateful for the opportunity express herself fearlessly and ferociously.
