Ricochet Circus delivers an hour of power in UP LATE CABARET! with near-perfect marks in their showcasing of Perth talent. This show has everything from tantalising burlesque; to hair-raising acrobatics that will leave you ravenous for more!
Prepare to be ushered into the gorgeous turn-of-the-century Lotterywest De Parel Spiegeltent and into the very capable arms of your seasoned hosts for the evening as they guide you through the best variety show Perth FRINGE WORLD Festival has to offer.
Be warned that after Miss Burlesque 2020 winner, Lucy Lovegun performs you will have to dust the dirt from your chin when removing your jaw from the floor; a delectable concoction of campiness and seduction. Their ounterpart, Mel Naumoff, beckoned the audience into a slower, sensual side of Burlesque which neatly juxtaposed the first performance. Naumoff and Lovegun command the stage with star power and most certainly put Perth on the map for the world of burlesque.
Mickey J and his eclectic blend of mime and musical comedy once shone under the stage lighting proved him a comedic goliath. If you're the kind of person to boast seeing homegrown talent before their career skyrockets, I highly suggest getting down to see this man before the rest of the world falls in love with his charm.
If you go to variety shows expecting to see some male eye candy, you're in for a treat with the aerial artist, Jason Ahipene, who gave Newton's Apple a run for its money with his gravity-defying aerial act that left the crowd in an awestruck state throughout the duration of his performance.
Morgan James stole the show with what was promised to be "the best f***ing diablo you've ever seen!" and transported the audience from a show they were viewing to an entirely interactive experience. James is a fabulous entertainer with the personality to match the skillset. I'll certainly be attending his solo show after such a pleasant experience watching him perform in this variety show.
If you enjoy raw, local talent and fast-paced entertainment, this is the show for you!
