IT'S NAUGHTY but nice, sexy and saucy, tasteful rather than filthy and depraved. It is Galway burlesque and cabaret night The Dirty Circus, and it kickstarts this year's Vodafone Comedy Carnival Galway.
The Dirty Circus 'Spooky Spiegel' show takes place in the Spiegeltent, Eyre Square, on Tuesday October 25 at 7.30pm, the opening night of the festival, promising a feast of decadent and diverse delights.
This ridiculously extravagant extravaganza will be partially tamed and brilliantly hosted by Phil T Gorgeous. Drag king, gender illusionist, male impersonator - whatever you call him, you will not be able to take your eyes off him. Mr Gorgeous is resident host at the Burlesque and Cabaret Social Club in the Sugar Club and performs twice a week at The George Bar.
The performers at the show will include reigning Miss Burlesque Ireland 2016, La Petite Mort and the incredible hula hooper, fire dancer, and curvy circus freak, Shir Madness. Audience members are encouraged to dress for the occasion.
