Big Girls Go Burlesque

SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A plus-sized Blues diva and fat activist has a titillating way of helping ladies and gents get over their body issues – a burlesque show and concert featuring big girls like herself.

Singer Candye Kane is organizing a show that will feature herself, a group of double-sized dancers called the Fat Bottom Burlesque Review and a “phat” jazz singer named “Phatmandee.”

The tour officially begins Friday (Sept. 9) in San Diego and Kane figures the heavyweight show will be “empowering” and promises “a whole lot of female flesh onstage at one time.”

Kane’s no boob. She plans to squeeze her own 44GG breasts – she calls them “G as in gorgeous” – into corsets and a red sequined can-can dress and belt out “fat positive” songs like “You Need A Great Big Woman To Show You How To Love” and “All You Can Eat (And You Can Eat It All Night Long).”

It sounds light-hearted but Kane says the inspiration for the show is the everyday struggles of overweight men and women.

As she explains, “The choices are either to be invisible or stand out. I encourage people to stand out.”
