FRINGEWORLD 2017 – The Little Death Club (4.5 stars)

Review by Laura Money

What do you get when you combine award-winning host Bernadette Byrne with a huge line-up of debaucherously delicious cabaret, burlesque and comedy from the festival? The Little Death Club of course. Hilariously and aptly named, this show will get you through the night with it’s after-party vibe. It’s a variety night like no other, guaranteed to make you feel just a little turned on!

Byrne opens the show in true cabaret style – she saunters through the audience, sultry voice filling the tent like a smoky haze. Her Eastern Bloc-vibe takes you straight back to the cabarets of early 20th century Berlin. Byrne sings of many sexual experiences, including her time with a geek, and banters with the audience like no other. It’s a testament to how good she is when she convinces an audience member to help her with her costume and he does it without hesitation.

Each night is different and features short acts from around the festival. The Little Death Club is part of the Dead Man label and all the performers throughout are part of that label. What you’ll get is the best of the best, including drag, burlesque and everything in between. The theme of the whole show, however is sexy. Byrne brings everything together in a teasingly sexy manner that will get you going all night long!
