One look at Angel Beau, and it’s easy to be mesmerized by her impressive amount of body art. Among the favorites on her personal canvas? 

“I really like my right thigh tattoo, it’s all circus themed,” says Beau, ED’s in 2017, ED’s Newcomer of the Year (2015) and a three-time winner of the Exotic Dancer Invitational’s (EDI) Most Extreme Show. “I have a clown on a unicycle juggling, a clown-mouth circus entrance, an elephant balancing on a ball, trapeze aerialists, and I’ll have a ringleader coming up soon. My show is predominantly sideshow circus stunts so this is a super important piece to me.”

Then there’s the moth on Beau’s stomach, which also “means a lot to [her]. The moth is a reminder that things will get better because a moth will always find light in darkness.”

As a feature entertainer, it’s usually not too hard to find Beau performing in the dimly lit confines of countless gentlemen’s clubs.  ED Magazine spoke with Beau—on behalf of and our monthly Spotify series—about her start as an entertainer, her return to the EDIs, and her personality as a showgirl. And don’t miss Beau’s personalized Spotify playlist, courtesy of Bob Chiappardi and!

ED: How long have you been a dancer in strip clubs? Where was the first club where you danced, and what was it like the first few times you went on stage in a club?

BEAU: I’ve been a dancer since 2010. My first ever club was Crazy Girls in Hollywood, California. I had no idea how to dance or twerk. It was a Wednesday night which was the night they had bands play on the stage and the girls danced on the poles while the band played. The manager told me my name was London (because she is originally from London—Ed.) and wouldn’t let me change it to a name of my choice, but I liked it. Dancing while a band was playing really helped my confidence and didn’t make it look so obvious that I had no idea what I was doing.

ED: What made you decide to become a feature entertainer in the first place? How did your career as a feature begin, and did anyone inspire you to take your career to the next level?

BEAU: I remember while I was a house dancer at Hustler Las Vegas during Expo in 2013 or 2014, I saw Lacey Rain perform. She was amazing and 100% inspired me and continues to do so every day. I’m lucky enough to call her one of my best friends now. 

I was also in the beginning phases of putting together the Suicide Sirens at the time and that had started because Bambu Jessica and I were putting a showcase together for a Suicide Girls Touring Burlesque Show. We bought in some friends of ours (Chelsea La Vone, Jesabella Marie and Miz Hyjak) and showcased the show, Suicide Girls decided not to use the show we put together as we weren’t choreographed enough but we continued to do local shows together and then we were picked up by A-list Features. I stepped away from the Suicide Sirens in 2015 to pursue a solo feature adventure.

ED: Unless I’m mistaken, you were at one of our very first EDIs in Los Angeles several years ago, and you competed in Denver at Platinum 84. You’re back with us again this year, which is great! What do you look forward to most about being part of the EDI contest? 

BEAU: Yes! My first EDI was 2015 and I had no idea what I was getting into, I was so new to the feature world to and learning about all these competitions to be part of. Looking back now, I can see how much I’ve grown as a performer. I’m honored to be a part of EDI East this year and I’ll be looking forward to seeing my feature friends. One thing I love about EDI is the quality of the entertainers. I love watching everyone’s shows and being in awe of the talent. I will be showcasing a never-before-seen show for EDI this year and I’m nervous and excited about it.

ED: How would you describe your “personality” as an entertainer and what are some of your favorite “shows”?

BEAU: I’m not really sure. I’m definitely fun and unique and always keep the audience guessing what is going to happen next. I guess I can describe myself as having an ‘extreme’ personality as an entertainer. My favorite shows are my ringleader and my fireman. I have a feeling that my new show is going to be one of my new favorites. I just have to perfect it before EDI.

ED: What are your favorite types of music to dance to? Conversely, what music do you listen to when you aren’t working a club? 

BEAU: I am most definitely a rock girl, and dance to rock at the club although I do try to mix a lot of other styles in my show. When I’m not in a club, my favorite bands to listen to are Black Sabbath and Depeche Mode. I’m also a Post Malone fan, and while I’m in my car, I listen to country music.

ED: If you could see a concert of any musician or band, living or deceased, who would it be and why?

BEAU: Well up until recently, I really wanted to see Lady Gaga, but I was lucky enough to see her on NYE. I would have really loved to see Prince or Queen with Freddie (Mercury). 

Angel Beau was named in 2017 and is a three-time winner of the EDI Most Extreme Show.

Here’s more about Angel, courtesy of!

Where do you hail from: London

How many years have you been dancing: 10 years

How many years have you featured: 6

Favorite type of music: Rock

Favorite recording artist: Black Sabbath

Favorite song to dance to: #knivesfirebarbedwire It’s a song that Josh Fiore wrote and recorded for me! There’s a music video for it coming soon also! I include this song in my live shows and I’m so pumped for everyone to hear it and see it!

Favorite song to listen to: You can’t beat “Black #1” by Type O Negative!

Favorite club manager: There are so many to choose from, everyone has been so lovely it’s hard to choose just one.

Favorite DJ or industry pro: I absolutely love, love, love working for PANDA DJs!! They get the industry, they’re great hype men and I’ve received nothing but support from them through my whole feature career.

Favorite part of your work night: After my first show, especially in a new club I haven’t been to before. I get nervous about how people will receive my show and how they’ll react to it. So as soon as the first show is done and everyone starts freaking out, and talking about how much they loved it, then that’s what makes me happy. I want everyone to have a good time and seeing people enjoy my show makes all the blood, sweat and tears worth it.

Pet working peeve: Definitely when people try to touch you and not respect your personal boundaries.

Advice for new feature dancers: Find your niche in the market, stand out from the crowd, be unique. If you can, try to get an established feature to mentor you. Invest in costumes, be professional on the internet and don’t air your dirty laundry there. Do your research about the industry (know the who’s who), go to Expo, be fun and respectful.
