She’s a classy girl with a sassy twist. Betsy Bootknocker likes to tantalize the crowd with a little bit of tease then blow them away with a whole lot of sass. Colorado’s Giggling Girl got her start in the Denver burlesque scene over 6 years ago with Ooh La La Presents: Panties at the Bar. Since then, she’s wiggled and giggled all over the state. Betsy has performed in Fierce: The International Queer Burlesque Festival in addition to being a regular with Tranzcend Drag and Burlesque. She’s performed with Peaks and Pasties in Colorado Springs, Cora Vette’s Racy Review in Ft. Collins, and has been a regular with Crimson Burlesque. Now, this bombshell is producing her own show, called Queeriosity every 4th Saturday at Blush and Blu in Denver. Is there anything this smiling sweetheart can’t do?
