Have you met… BIRDIE BY NIGHT?


While some of our fans/friends have seen Birdie around on stage a lot more these days, you may not also *know* her badassery behind the scenes. So let us introduce you to our Fishnet Follies “Cruise Director”…


Birdie by Night, she is not only a silly, warm hearted little bird, but is is also the most intellectual and knowledgable bird I know! She is always willing to lend a helping hand and share her brain power with anyone in need.  – Frankie Fictitious
Birdie is a wealth of information. She is always the first to let us know about important online sales on rhinestones & such. She also informs us when airlines are having specials so we can book our flights to BHoF. She is our own personal concierge!  ~Peek-a-Booty Betty
First of all Birdie came to burlesque from roller derby, so she is literally an ass-kicker. She’s driven, enthusiastic, brilliant, and fun, and she’s such a joy to be around. – June St. Croix
I am so glad I asked Birdie By Night to play sexy Mojo Jojo for our Powerpuff Girsl number this past April at Hubba Hubba Revue. She came in with nothing but the simple Direction of playing Mojo and mind controlling the Powerpuffs and in that role she took it to a whole other level with her ultra sexy costuming and hilarious choreography. She was easily everyone’s favorite part of that number and I am so grateful to work with her on this and so many other projects over the years!  – Maggie Motorboat

Have you met… SOPHIE ROSE BISOU?

Sophie Rose Bisou

She’s near and dear to our hearts. One of the core members of Fishnet Follies. You’ve seen her on stage, in the audience, manning merch tables… and yet, somehow keeps a low profile. So let us introduce you to our “Rose Without Thorns”– 



“She’s a costume creating queen! Not only are her acts brilliant and cleverly detailed throughout -from her costume to the song choice & choreography-, she’s one of the sweetest, most approachable people that still finds time to go above and beyond to help others- not just with costumes! She’s amazing!”  – Sweet Belize


“I love Sophie! Her routines are creative, fun, sultry and,  of course beautifully costumed. She is great to work and collaborate with – always spilling with ideas. Plus she is genuine and caring. All around an amazing woman.”  – Scarlett Peele


“Sophie is an incredible storyteller with fun — and thoughtful — characters; from her very first act as the Barbie who’s happy just the way she is to the sweetest “ugly” duckling and the vengeful voodoo priestess, she brings them to life with incredible detail and a wonderful sense of humor. Her costuming is not only technically amazing and dazzling (“how did she…??”) but always true to the story and the characters she so generously  shares with us on stage. And to paraphrase Gypsy Rose Lee, oh honey, she can cook!” – Birdie by Night




“While obviously a costume genius, Sophie is also a casual cat-toy maker, a casserole maven, and quite the comedienne. You can always count on Ms. Bisou to show up, dance her derrière off, care for (and feed) her fellow dancers, and maybe even sew your knickers, if you’re lucky!”
– Marlena Merlot


“Sophie Rose Bisou, the Bay Areas very own costuming guru. If you have had the pleasure of seeing  Ms. Bisou perform then you too have witnessed her innovative costuming and impeccable story telling. Her bright and lovable personality shines both onstage and behind the scenes. She is the Seamstress extraordinaire of the Fishnet Follies.”
– Frankie Fictitious
