September 2011: Burly Q & a bit of hosting

In Edinburgh near the end of the Fringe I was contacted by the lovely Audrey Hepcat from one of my favourite UK cabaret shows РBurly Q in Sheffield. I was delighted that they wanted me to be a part of their September show, and even more pleased that I would be sharing the stage with two of my favourite performers, Audacity Chutzpah and Laurie Hagen.

In early September we all travelled up to a delightful proper working men’s club with exactly the right atmos for an enjoyable night. Here’s Audacity with a running order from the 70s which we found in our dressing room – Old skool!

The audience, as they tend to be in the north were AWESOME, enthusiastic and welcoming. I performed an act I don’t do very often, How to Burlesque the British Way, and my debauched rock groupie act Rock & Roll Heart and they went down a storm. The finale act, Audacity & Laurie’s double fan dance, was bth graceful and pant-wettingly funny. You can see how much here:

On September 14th I did something a bit different: I hosted (and tech’d and performed at!) Cirque du Surrealism, a weekly cabaret show at central London restaurant Salvador & Amanda. It’s nice to host a show as I don’t get to do as much of it as I would like, and even nicer to work with a variety of sideshow, circus and street artists whom I hadn’t met previously. Hopefully I’ll be back there again before too long.
