“... Her stage presence marries Phyllis Diller with Miss Piggy, then somehow makes it funnier. Sporting a sparkly, skintight evening gown and two pounds of bright blue eye shadow, the middle-aged DeBris uses a high- pitched, breathless voice to tease the audience and half-heartedly seduce the dancers. All that would be plenty, but it’s the one-liners that make her a true find. I almost spit my drink across the room when she huffily announced that “anyone who thinks more than a mouthful’s a waste doesn’t deserve to have a booby in his mouth.” –LAS VEGAS WEEKLY
Blanche has been entertaining herself and occasionally others for more years than she can reliably count. If America had a sweetheart, Blanche would be her well-meaning but less attractive best friend. She made her burlesque debut at the Moisture Festival in Seattle in 2008, and has returned repeatedly as a performer and co-host. Since 2012, she has been an emcee of the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender, the burlesque world’s premiere annual international event.
Blanche is also an instructor, having taught classes in emceeing and character/act development at BurlyCon and will be hosting a session at CIBF's Saturday workshops!
But most of all, Blanche strives to brighten the burlesque world with her boundless joy, enthusiasm, optimism, and bewilderment.
P.S...don't forget your rubber ducky. Xoxo
