‘SENSATIONAL… A fierce but kindhearted fusion of comedy, burlesque, performance art and rock ’n’ roll’ New York Times
‘If you only see one cabaret show this year, see Lady Rizo… Soulful, uproarious, slightly scary and utterly irresistible’
★★★★★ Time Out
‘A diva oozing old-school charisma… Add in that she’s funny, flicking gigantic eyelashes and seducing the crowd with salacious, overblown humour.’ ★★★★ The List
‘She is sexy, but she is bonkers, over the top, send-yourself-up sexy and it works.’
‘When she belts the last note, everything is in place. The hand is daintily raised just so, the immobile coiffed hair frames her face and the monstrous eyelashes consume the eyes… you’d barely know what decade it is.’
New York Post
‘Sings her songs bewitchingly.’ New York Times
‘Winkingly sexy chanteuse… Lusciously retro vocals.’ Time Out New York
‘Empowering, strange and soulful – make sure you catch this cabaret superstar while you can.’ The Stage
‘Rizo is an absolute sensation; her sharp wit is perfectly balanced with her outstanding vocal talent and she will give you an hour of glitzy escapism that will inspire and thrill.’ ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘Rizo’s performance has all the glamour of a poodle, but with the growl of a pitbull.’
