Mourna Handful

The Uncontainable Mourna Handful is a DC/MD/VA-based burlesque performer and producer. She focuses on character and narration to create stimulating storytelling striptease that always brings the audience to a happy ending. Mourna made her way in 2009 from wide-eyed audience member to onstage ecdysiast by way of Queen of Burlesque Trixie Little and her Burlesque Bootcamp. Since then she has performed up and down the East Coast and appeared in the Jim Thorpe Burlesque Festival, the Pennsylvania Burlesque Festival, Alternacirque’s Festival of Doom, the Asheville Burlesque and Sideshow Festival, the Virginia Burlesque and Sideshow Festival, and the first annual Snake Oil Festival in New Orleans, LA.  She has had the honor of sharing the stage with such talented performers as King of Boylesque Russell Bruner, Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey, Nasty Canasta, Darlinda Just Darlinda, The Maine Attraction, Albert Cadabra, Donny Vomit and Frankie Sin, Olde City Sideshow, King of Boylesque Mr. Gorgeous, and Armitage Shanks. She has also been a three-time guest performer for Queen of Burlesque Angie Pontani’s Burlesque-A-Pades. Mourna has been known to occasionally drop her sparkling facade to become the DMV's bewitching Sweetheart of Dark. She was a co-founder of Black Tassel Boolesque (2010-2014), who produced shows from the dark and decadent to the creepy and campy. When you see this buxom beauty onstage, be prepared to be whisked away to a storyland in another time and another place and where the inhabitants are slightly naked.
