Podcast #17:‘I have delusions of grandeur’: 45 minutes of loveliness with burlesque powerhouse Cece Sinclair.

In the latest HLAY podcast Dr Ellen Wright (and her friend Bobbie) talks with triple-threat burlesque powerhouse Cece Sinclair.

Cece has been on the British burlesque seen for a few years now and has a reputation for her professionalism, her polished performances and her sheer likeability.


They grabbed the chance to chat at this year’s Hebden Bridge Burlesque Festival, back in May, and they discuss a broad range of topics including burlesque birthdays, choreography, the politics of public nakedness and the horror cult of Cece Sinclair.

If you want to see more of Cece she is on both Facebook and Instagram.

The ‘45 minutes of loveliness’ mentioned in the podcast’s title is how the HLAY podcast editor, John Ashbrooke, described this interview and he’s absolutely right. It is a joy.
