House of Burlesque has returned to London Wonderground’s evocative, twinkling Spiegeltent for a third year with a new production playing a string of dates in August and September.

I am a neo-burlesque artist, drag king and freakshow artist. I am sometimes known for my frantic antics on stage, but mostly for my love for distorting myself. I am often asked by audience members: ‘You are not bad looking. Why don’t you do classic?’  Firstly, I love classic; it’s graceful, elegant, sexy, but most […]

It’s all change at Cafe de Paris.  Resident guest show The Wam Bam Club has departed, and the venue now has its own new shows, produced in-house.  One of these is Showtime, a supper club cabaret with the option of a three course dining experience, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  If you’ve never been to Cafe […]
