Biography

Burlesque Fool Count Adriano Fettucini utilises CIRCUS SKILLS and COMEDY to add a truly unique twist to the art of TEASE and BURLESQUE CABARET. He performs regularly on both the London and Brighton Burlesque Cabaret circuits and throughout the UK and Europe.

‘Impressive Antics that will have you hold your breath’

Fettucini first stumbled into the world of burlesque in 2008 after reinventing his  UNICYCLE STRIPTEASE (first performed in 1993).  Since then he has perfected several variants suitable for all occasions, exept children’s parties!  Should you find yourself requiring  A City Businessman, A Victorian Gent, A Chimney Sweep, A Bagpipe Playing Scotsman or a Cross Dressing Beauty? to strip (or dress in the later case) on a unicycle, The Count is your man!!

By endlessly dragging a wheel on and off of trains he has become well respected performer on the UK Burlesque circuit, regularly performing in London, Brighton and beyond.

After discovering a natural affinity for CIGAR BOXES and CLOWNING, Adriano has become adept at finding ever more inventive ways to put a unique slant on the manipulation of said props.  His Juggling Fool acts marry his cigar boxes with poetry, beer bottles, hats, gloves, cane, glasses, a blindfold and a primed animal trap!!

‘the set was ultimately redeemed by a well-sold final stunt, which did something apparently impossible with cigar boxes in the face of mortal perilRichard Stamp, Fringe Guru

Fettucini spent many years perfecting the art of being a failed musician!! If you feel you need educating in the lifecycle of water bourne parasites and the like, just ask him to bring his UKULELE along, just don’t be afraid to join in, you’ll have NO CHOICE!
