Agent Lynch, the burlesque artist and all round 60s aficiondo, has been a firm favourite of the Burlesque scene for the past 6 years. A circuit fixture in her native London she also performs regularly in France, Italy, Ireland and accross Europe. Famous for her inventive espionage, Barbarella and iconic 60s and 70s inspired routines she has gained a reputation for out of the ordinary shows specialising in pyrotechnics, magic, humorous twists and working with conceptual fashion designers such as Rachel Friere (Jessie J) and Petra Storrs (Lady Gaga and Paloma Faith). In August 2012 Agent Lynch joined the Olivier Awards winning La Clique Royale to 5 star reviews (The Scotsman). She is currently based in Melbourne.
Because of her love of 1960s glamour US lingerie Brand Secrets in Lace appointed Agent Lynch in 2008 to be their UK spokesmodel, and she represents them at the London and New Orleans Burlesque Festival each year. Agent Lynch also produced and starred in the acclaimed New York disco inspired cabaret Studio 64 also featuring acclaimed cabaret aritsts’ Kiki Kaboom, Roxy Velvet and Kitty Bang Bang (Hurly Burly) which ran at Brickhouse, London, for a 2 month extended run. This was followed by the Prince Tribute show ‘Purple Rain’ which starred Europe’s leading Prince tribute artist Jimmy Love. Studio 64 has now gone on to tour in Vienna and now produces the Studio 64 for Winterwell Festival annually.
Agent Lynch has danced her way around Bollywood, performed for Rock royalty (Queen), taken to Bestival’s main stage and starred in music promos for bands such as Elbow, Tricky, The Enemy, The Correspondents, Six Nation State. Her media credits include ABC New Orleans, ITV’s ‘I love the 60s’, a panelist on BBC Radio 4 and Honda’s Live Every Litre documentary, which saw Agent Lynch perform her iconic Yves Klein Tribute live in Montmartre, Paris. Agent Lynch also features in the books ‘Be Burlesque’ by Soazig Le Bozec and ‘Domestic Burlesque’ by Elsa Quarsell which became the front cover of the The Times Spectrum magazine. Her burlesque faux-espoinage exploits also lead to her arrest in Morocco, but that’s another story.
