Magic Faraway Cabaret (Magic Faraway / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

An exciting array of the best in burlesque, comedy and sideshow variety are on show at the late night ‘Magic Faraway Cabaret’. Hosted by the humble ‘Dave The Bear’, this fun late night show has a taste of everything: sexy jazz, feathers, glitter and the best “hand striptease” I’ve ever seen. The acts were effervescent and interacted well with the audience; award winning burlesque dancer Aurora Galore wowed us, while psychic comic Peter Antoniou impressed us with his mind reading tricks. There was even a fawn, stepping away from the sound desk to wow us with a song. The Bear as compère was a real charm, stick around for his final appearance at the end of the night.

The Voodoo Rooms, until 25 Aug (not 12), 10.50pm.
