Review: Hot Brown Honey

Hot Honey Brown

It’s a man’s world – we are reminded by the divine opening number for the suave burlesque cabaret show Hot Brown Honey, but as the highbrow blend of dance, poetry, circus and striptease really gets going under the political hip-hop guidance of queen-of-cool emcee Busty Beatz, we’re very quickly consumed by a world that is… Read more.

Review: The Travelling Sisters

Beneath the floorboards of a new Brisbane venue – the Padre Dive Bar – a sisterhood of three fine young women held an audience captive for an evening to showcase a collection of their best sketches and musical comedy numbers. The Travelling Sisters, outfitted in animal-printed pants, conjured up through music, comedy and animation, a… Read more.


Spiegelworld Tour: Absinthe

Sparkly. Dirty-sexy. Performing fast-paced, high-risk goings-on that fill the lush red-velvet tent. And that’s just the filthy two-person team who host this cabaret/circus/vaudeville show. In the intimate space of the spiegeltent, Master of Ceremonies The Gazillionaire is an energetically unsavoury presence. With flashing gold tooth, lank greasy hair, brocade jacket and too-short trousers, he tells us… Read more.


Review: Everybody Loves Lucy

An extra bonus of attending the opening night of Elise McCann’s Cabaret Everybody Loves Lucy (which briefly played at the Cremorne Theatre February 24-27) was watching the audience arrive all dolled up in their fifties frocks and quaffed hairdos. The audience were clearly having a fabulous time even… Read more.

Adelaide Fringe: SOAP

Placing SOAP into any genre (or section of The Fringe Guide) certainly won’t wash with me; it can fit into any of them, all of them! It’s a fantastic fusion of cabaret, circus, dance, music and theatre (with some comedy too). There is so much in it and it is all so good! It kicks… Read more.

Review: Ben From Brisbane – A Quiet Night In.

Australia fell in love with ‘Ben From Brisbane’ during his time on Big Brother in 2013. Since leaving as one of the show’s favourite housemates, the quirky tea drinking, antique loving, snort laughing Ben Zabel is constantly stopped for questions, conversations, and selfie requests, on the street, in the supermarket isle, at car accidents, and even… Read more.
