October, the start of Autumn and one more step towards early dark evenings. It's not my favourite time of year but today, the 1st October I have something to look forward to: The Twisted Cabaret at Bush Hall. A cabaret produced by Chaz Royal and promising to be 'Burlesque with a difference'.
So, James and I, as part of the Burlesque Map London mission, were both looking forward to this unusual cabaret. I didn't know what to expect because this was my first time at Bush Hall. Small venue compared to some others I have been to, but a really good feeling to the place. Of course, being famous for its association with the media (tv and radio), I was curious and excited about being there.
The compère, Frank Sanazi, was controversial and certainly suited this twisted show and all twisted minds present! Although the venue didn't hold a massive crowd, it was very well attended and, as always, the audience participated with great enthusiasm.
A brilliant line up for a freak show. I mean it was like going to the circus with a showcase of weird, unusual acts. The Baron performed a very entertaining 'nipple muscle', and other weight lifting acts with a difference. Who can lift weights of 5 kilos with their eyelids? An act worth watching!
Beeby Rose and her masquerade shimmy, swaying with grace with feathered Venetian masks, what a visual delight!
Joe Black, dark comic clown, and many other acts were all worth, ooohhh so worth watching...!!
A colourful and original show full of eccentricity, with a wonderful line up. A great night of awesome perverted Burlesque...!
But why take my word for it? Go and see all of Chaz's events, in London and all around the world... A troupe in many cities...!!!
