Dusty Limits: Absolute kUNST - 15th February, 8pm, RVT
An evening of cabaret surprises at the legendary Royal Vauxhall Tavern. I'll be hosting and singing some original songs with Michael Roulston, and my guests are: Glory Pearl (the Naked Stand-Up), who'll be doing stand-up and poetry completely in the buff. Laura Moody, an amazing musician who makes the most remarkable sounds with nothing but her voice and cello (if Kate Bush was a beatboxer, that's the general vibe). And Ruby Wednesday, cabaret rockstar and genderf*ck artiste, who'll be paying tribute to Bowie, among other things. plus size selections for wedding that cost below 100
There will be a chance for the audience to prove themselves as artists, and a 'best-dressed' prize for whoever comes as a work of art. Some of you may remember the original KUNST back in the day - it'll be like that, but better. And after the cabaret (from about 10pm to midnight) I'll be making my debut as a DJ, under the heading 'Mish-Mash', dance music from the 18th century to the present-day, with commentary.

ALL TICKET PROCEEDS GO TO CABARET VS. CANCER and we will be collecting for THE ALBERT KENNEDY TRUST on the night.
Tickets are a steal at £5 (+£1 booking fee) in advance or £8 on the door. Advance tickets will go up to £6 + the booking fee soon so get in quickly!
Doors open at 7.30pm and the reading starts at 8.30pm, but we strongly encourage you to get there early and get some drinks in.
NB: we're at a new, bigger venue, the historic Bethnal Green Working Men's Club in Pollard Row, Bethnal Green.
NB: It's also the night before my 46th birthday!
I hope you can make one or both of these events.
Lots of love,
