Cabarets

Taking our inspiration from the likes of Marie Lloyd and Mae West, our cabaret work promotes the female voice in comedy, writing, song and performance. We have created cabaret events like London favourite Mother Mae I!, seasonal sensation Jingle Belles, and Edinburgh hit The Riot Showgrrrls Club that make no compromises and take no prisoners! We recreate the bygone cabaret of the wild, wilful and wickedly expansive divas like our heroine Mae West by bring you the best in today’s stand up, musical comedy, puppetry, grotesques and magic.

Our acts take up space, fill your vision and don’t hold back on the chat – our motto is “less nude, more ‘tude!” – so you will see and hear a new generation of professional acts guaranteed to take you to the edge of your comfort zone, to the pain barrier of the your laughter endurance and to the height of all the warm, fuzzy happiness you deserve by turns.

Currently we are touring The Full Bronte Literary Cabaret, It’s Your Round Cabaret Pub Quiz, Sorry I Haven’t a Minute Radio Cabaret and The Salon du Chocolat Storytelling Cabaret. Please follow the links below for more on these and our other cabaret events.
