Cabaret Abnormal is a production company and brand that thrived in Montreal, Canada from 2016, and has been charming audiences in Melbourne, Australia since 2019. Bringing events that blend the decadence and opulence of Moulin Rouge, that mix with the dark and quirky styles of Tim Burton. They have worked with renown performers such as Queen of Burlesque, Lou Lou la Duchesse de Riere and the Number 1 Burlesque Performer as voted in 21st Century Magazine, Zelia Rose.

Since returning to Melbourne, they have showcased their production 'Jinxed' to sold out audiences at The Melba Speigeltent and Midsumma Festival 2020.
Dedicated to blending the weird with the wow, our artists and themes are just a little left-of-centre and are not afraid to step outside the box.  You'll be freaked out and turned on at the same time. But don't worry, you'll be safe - our #circustrash don't bite unless you want them to.

Step inside...there's nowhere to hide!

Casting her spell over Canada before her triumphant return to Melbourne, Mikki Michelle is a curvaceous creep who takes her audiences beyond normal and into an exquisite cabaret dream. Irregular and irresistible, Mikki is both burlesque babe and sultry chanteuse, audiences knowing her as ‘The Stripping Songstress’.


While Mikki moves and sings to her own beat, she brings the best along to party: she’s produced the world’s freakiest show in fishnets- Cabaret Abnormal- since 2016 both overseas and in Melbourne, having wowed The Melba Spiegeltent and Midsumma Festival with the show’s delicious mix of decadent glamour and circus trash. She’s also the social media manager for burlesque businesses including Bottoms Up and The Australian Burlesque Festival and was voted among Montreal’s Top 10 Promoters in 2016 for Cult Montreal.


Dazzling onstage and dextrous offstage, Mikki Michelle is a notorious international cabaret agitator with an appetite for anarchy. Multitalented, macabre, magnificent. From Montréal to Melbourne – Mikki means madness!
