“Preposterously unique and unforgettable… The magic is in the unapologetic ridiculousness of it all.” The Upcoming
The ever popular, weird and wonderful, Ms. Paolini’s Phantasmagoria Cabaret returns to Hoxton Hall for an evening of deconstructed, gender-bending cabaret presented by performance artist, theatre maker and comedian Patrizia Paolini. A show notorious for its quirky wit and challenging political commentary, it’s a thrilling evening not to be missed.
The ph-antastic Buddleia Maslen, Nauen Park, and Kieron Jecchinis will host and present several skits through the show, which will feature:
London based artist Rose Biggin uses wit, sex, history, fantasy and theatre in her work. A Jerwood Performing Arts Bursary recipient, Biggin is trained in Chinese Pole, a Miss Pole Dance UK finalist and an Associate Artist at the Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter. Biggin also writes jokes for BBC Radio 4 including The Now Show and The News Quiz.
The much loved Julian Fox returns to Phantasmagoria. Penned by the Observer “Julian Fox turns every expectation of a comedy show on its head; an hour seems to pass in minutes and the result is engaging, elegiac and uplifting.”
Julian began his career as a stage-door keeper at the Barbican Centre. During his shifts, trying to pass the time, he read the self help book that inspired him to start writing. He has since made five one-man shows, including A Slackers Opera which performed at the Barbican Centre and The Guardian’s Alternative Perrier Award nominated Rebranding Mr God. He has more recently created programmes for BBC Radio 4 and for the last few years has been focusing on writing songs about modern life and hoping it isn’t too late to become a pop star.
The Sugar Snakes
Ensuring the evening will not be short of local talent is Hackney jazz punk band The Sugar Snakes. Since the band formed in 2013, they’ve been making the rounds on the local circuit, performing in North London’s legendary live music venues the Fiddlers Elbow in Camden and 02 Academy in Islington.
Nobody knows bananas like Bananaman knows bananas. He has a bunch of bananas and he’s going to do weird things with them. He’s totally bananas! A surreal clown comedy act from Nathan Lang. ★★★★½ “Hilariously stupid” (Reviews Hub) “Highly inventive with consummate physical comedy skills” (The List)
