Who is Titsalina Bumsquash?
Some say she’s a Legend, others say she is a comedy genius – we say she’s a gobshite.
Titsalina grew up in a small village in the West country where she spent valuable time scrumping apples and playing chicken with tractors. She’s always been a bit of a show off and making people laugh is one of her most favorite things to do. So, at the ripe age of 18, she packed her bags and moved to Manchester to study a BA (Hons) in Acting…
After a few blurry student years in Manchester, Tits found a home there, and friends and… BURLESQUE! From the moment she watched her first show, she was hooked; what can be better than glamour, comedy AND nudity? This lit a fire in her belly more than any of those Brecht plays she’d been forced to study at Drama School!
She found a course with Bella Besame – a fabulous teacher and great show producer. Tits loved creating her act, Mavis so much, she twisted Bella’s nipples until she agreed to put her on a line up.
On May 25th 2012, Titsalina Bumsquash was born.

‘Titsalina Bumsquash is perfectly timed burlesque bundle of comedy perfection. She had me laughing so hard I thought I might wee. I would highly recommend her to anyone with a sense of humour, she is absolute fun and has the most fantastic facial expressions. I literally cannot wait to see what she does next! A comedy starlet in the making, she performs with confidence and panache and I fell in love with her character instantly. If Eric Morecambe had been a woman I think this is what we could’ve expected, comic magic.’

Titsalina Bumsquash: funny by name, funny by nature.
I was lucky enough to see Tits’s debut and laughed til my sides split, not only is she a master of comedy timing she moves with grace and packs a punch with her on point comedy themed stylings.
A little Reeves & Mortimer, a little Sue Pollard, she’s destined to take the burlesque world by storm!
