"8 hottest Burlesque Stars of All Time: Gypsy, Dita, Josephine and Lola: Some burlesque performers are content to practice their art as a hobby, or a mere career path. Shake your groove thang, cover your naughty bits with some feathers, collect a check. But few people have the giant brass lady-balls to turn their love of burlesque into an academic pursuit. But that's just what Lola the Vamp has done, earning her Ph.D. in burlesque. That means in all her correspondence, she gets to sign of "Lola the Vamp, Doctor of Burlesque." And that, friends, is totally friggin' cool."
- Ward Rubrecht - 8 hottest Burlesque Stars of All Time: City Pages

"Lola the Vamp performed an astounding burlesque routine. So elegant and stylish, she has such amazing stage presence! Combining ballet with the best of European Burlesque. Arriving in an Amsterdam chair and looking like she had emerged from Carnevale did Venezia, complete with the vintage hat... she was breath taking!"
- Wooly - Faster Louder

"Lola is Australia’s premier mistress of’s a hell of a show. A show she’s executed everywhere from the homeland (including, but not limited to, nationally on the Big Day Out tour) to glittering Las Vegas, Paris and Tokyo. Nick Cave summed it up in a single word, in true Cave style: “Beautiful”. She manages to wrap the crowd in a haze of fantasy, taking them back to a time of subtle erotica and elegant performance."
- Lisa Dib -

"One of the most internationally recognised and impeccably styled burlesque divas. Lola's dramatic shows and smouldering looks will take you to an exotic netherworld you'd only ever dreamed of. Come for the rare opportunity of seeing this burlesque superstar shine."
- Francios Buble - 34b Burlesque

Sensual and graceful, pure seduction.
