UPCOMING SHOWS ONLINE AND LIVE…
LIVE: OCTOBER 22ND AT THE TWO BREWERS, CLAPHAM: ‘LOOKING FOR ME FRIEND: THE MUSIC OF VICTORIA WOOD’
A funny and touching tribute to this much loved and sorely missed national treasure, Victoria Wood. Written and performed by BBC1’s All Together Now star, Paulus aka The Cabaret Geek (‘King of Cabaret’, The Stage) this brand new show sees him in a fresh light as a lifelong fan and devotee of the Queen of Comedy. Celebrate her unforgettable characters, songs and sketches and the power of friendships forged through laughter. From Mrs Overall to Barry & Freda, everyone is there. The only thing that’s missing is you.
LIVE: OCTOBER 23RD AT WATERMANS ARTS, BRENTFORD: CHRISTINE BOVILL ‘TONIGHT YOU BELONG TO ME’
Following on from the success of Piaf and Paris at Watermans, the award-winning, five-star Glaswegian chanteuse, Christine Bovill returns with a brand-new show. With her heart-melting, smoky, evocative voice, Christine cherry-picks some of the most celebrated songs and engrossing stories from the Jazz Age – the era of Prohibition, women’s suffrage, radio, flappers, vamps, F Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Charlie Chaplin, Charles Lindbergh and Bessie Smith. A decade of heroes and villains; of sex scandals; literary giants and criminal low lives – all beautifully bound in the seductive rhythms of jazz. Please note that seating is socially distanced. When you book your tickets, you will be given two extra tickets to allow for social distancing, and alternate rows are blocked. You will not be charged for the extra seats.
LIVE: SATURDAY 24TH OCTOBER & 5TH DECEMBER: BLACK CAT CABARET PRESENTS: LA POULE PLOMBÉE.

LIVE: NOVEMBER 1ST & 11th AT ZEDEL: ‘LOOKING FOR ME FRIEND: THE MUSIC OF VICTORIA WOOD’.
LIVE: SATURDAY 7TH NOVEMBER: BLACK CAT CABARET PRESENTS: DUSTY LIMITS & MICHAEL ROULSTON
Fans of the Tiger Lillies, Fascinating Aida and The Divine Comedy should attend. The show contains sex and drug references, some scathing satire, and a degree of artistic profanity.
LIVE: NOVEMBER 14TH AT THE TOWN & GOWN THEATRE, CAMBRIDGE: ‘LOOKING FOR ME FRIEND: THE MUSIC OF VICTORIA WOOD’
LIVE: DECEMBER 1ST to 4TH, AT ZEDEL: DILLIE KEANE IN ‘LOVE, POLITICS AND OTHER BAD IDEAS’
Yes, Dillie Keane is back! In these uncertain times, it’s good to think one can plan for a night of cabaret with one of its most venerable artists. Obviously, Dillie getting on in years and her age could count against her, so let’s hope she survives until December. (And for a good few more years after that, says she.)
In the meantime, she promises to be rude, moving, funny and emotional; she also promises that she will stand at the back of the stage and not spit. And she swears she will not sing any terrible parodies about Covid-19. In fact, she might not mention it at all. Wouldn’t that be a relief!
Digging into her extensive back catalogue, plundering the lesser known repertoire of some of America’s funniest songwriters and even racking her own tired old brain for a couple of new numbers, she will craft 75 minutes of cabaret loveliness that will make you glad you donned your mask and risked the tube journey to this gorgeous venue. (She’d gladly do a longer show but there’s a lot of gargling with bleach and perfumes of Arabia to be applied before she can appear safely before her public.)
Dillie is thrilled to be working once more with Michael Roulston on piano – he joined the Fascinating Aïda team last year and was a resounding success.
