"Short of having Frank Sinatra himself walk out onstage I couldn't have asked for a more 1950s-era Vegas night out.- The Noise Magazine, Boston
“By the end of the night, Luparelli had pulled two pairs of maracas out of her cleavage; her corset must be like the Tardis.”- the Boston Phoenix

From Boston, (where she was nominated “Best Female Comedian 2012 in the Boston Examiner) to Madame Jojo’s in London, Niki caresses with her classically trained/abused voice then sucker punches with her bawdy patter and mastery of the absurd, not to mention the ridiculous amount of items she can pull out of her bra like a magician, or Mary Poppins’ carpetbag.
She appeared in the 2004 Las Vegas Comedy Festival, the Boston Comedy Festival 2002-2007, and was once told by Piers Morgan at the Hammerstein ballroom that she was "the most annoying woman [he'd] ever met.”
With the Gold Diggers, she has opened for Frank Stallone, Gary Lewis (formerly of the Playboys), and Peter Tork (of the Monkees), and has been told by many fanny-pack wearing slot players after her gigs at Foxwoods Casino that she is “totally going to make it."
Winner 2011 Sexiest Musician, 2011 and 2012 Best Jazz act in New England’s Pulse Magazine and is appearing as Miss December in the Narragansett Beer 2013 pinup Calendar.
Niki is also Boston's top Marilyn Monroe impersonator (she recently appeared as Marilyn on a segment for the Today Show) half of musical comedy duo the Steamy Bohemians, and co-host/producer of the critically acclaimed traveling vintage variety show, Jerkus Circus.
