Celebrating 21 years as a hit radio show, the Dead Ringers team – in this case, Jon Culshaw, Debra Stephenson and Duncan Wisbey – have taken up a late August residency in the Big Top venue at London Wonderground.
Fight in the Dog provide an entertaining if occasionally flat take on Shakespeare’s comedy. This tale of mistaken identities is given new life by being performed by comedians, who show a great gift for timing – but sadly not depth of the characters to make the audience care about their situation.
After a dramatic Friday of tears and fears, agony and ecstasy and the resignation of a prime minister, a late-night cabaret of debauched unreality at the Hotel Black Cat proved to be quite the perfect antidote. From the mesmerising burlesque artistry of Venus Butterfly and the almost balletic athleticism of sublime acrobats Nathan and Isis to the decadent gluttony of pig-faced fire-eater Chrisalys, this was 75 minutes of unexpected delights, all camply presided over by compere Dusty Limits.
Not even a pesky power cut could derail this bizarre but entertaining show, performed by an extraordinarily talented and strong (in all senses of the word). Although Barbu begins slowly, things begin to intensify as the show and tricks progresses. It is filled with so many flips and dizzying stunts that are extremely close to the audience adding to the excitement and intensity.
