lolo brow: attention seeker
tuesday 10th july & wednesday 12th september
Awarding Winning Drag Queen, Neo-Burlesque artist and Lizard Lady, Lolo Brow invites you to hang shame at the door and indulge in your inner attention seeker. A new show derived from her Infamous Burlesque Shuffle playing with the concepts of audience voyerism, quick thinking and plain dumb luck, Lolo “Bonkers” Brow is a multi skilled international feminist clown who loves nothing more than to lower the tone of any evening. Expect prizes, swearing and nudity – choose to spin the wheel or keep your cards close to your chest, for tonight will be unlike any other night.
Join the Self proclaimed Queen of “LOOK-AT-ME” in a menagerie of daring performances, as we gamble, trade and cheat our way to the top questioning how honest we are, and what lengths we will go to be visible.

peter antoniou: psychic comedian
Wednesday 5th sept 2018
'Psychic' Comedian Peter Antoniou brings his unique skills to peer inside your head, fondle your frontal lobe, and tickle your funny bone to the Underbelly Festival. Fresh off his 10th year of sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and an international tour, join him as he tells jokes and fortunes live on stage.
Think of a question: it can be silly or serious; about your past, your present, or your future; it could be about your love life, or even just what colour your underwear is. It doesn't matter what it is, just think of it and Peter will look inside your mind and give you the answer. Part comedy, part mind reading, this show will leave you asking, is your mind safe?
