Comic Strip (Assembly)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

With its vivid 1960s atmosphere, the Dans Paleis forms the perfect setting for this innovative concept for late-night entertainment. Compèred by Australian comic Asher Treleaven and featuring a host of different acts on its various nights, this evening of comedy is interspersed with burlesque dancing and strip-tease. It’s surprisingly light, though, and is something that can be enjoyed by both genders, while the relaxed ambience makes it an excellent way to see a good variety of performers for a reasonable sum of money. This gentle show provides the perfect introduction to a genre that is often the subject of misunderstanding, so even if you have never fancied yourself much of a burlesque lover, you may find yourself converted.

Assembly George Square, 4 – 7, 11 – 14, 19 – 21, 26 – 28 Aug, times vary, £13.00 – £15.00, fpp60.
