Ripley Caine will host CAKE CHICAGO, the LGBTQ Arts Showcas, as it celebrates a seventh year anniversary show Oct. 5 at 9 p.m. at The Red Line Tap, 7006 N. Glenwood, near the Morse El Stop. $5. cover.
The show will feature: Tamale Sepp, Eli & The No Good and Rm:509.
She began performing burlesque with the Sissy Butch Brothers Burlesque, Lavender Cabaret, Angela Eve, and Varietease Cabaret. She travelled far and wide with the international gender performance troupe, Windy City Blenders and began performing drag with members of the Chicago Kings. Somewhere along the way, she picked up fire dancing performing with members of SPUNN, Pyrotechnique, and Temple of Poi. Through all this exploration, comedy was there all along- showing up in everything she did. Finally Tamale decided that it was time for a show… a comedy show that showcased all these interests and the amazing people she loves to play with, so she began producing Brass Chuckles.
