The Double R Club Presents

HEAD FULL OF LIGHTNING,  HAT FULL OF RAIN,

The Music of TOM WAITS.

Join award-winning cabaret host and emcee Benjamin Louche (“reliably sinister” – Time Out) to celebrate the music of TOM WAITS!

For ONE NIGHT ONLY, join Louche as he delves into the peerless songbook of that barroom balladeer, that junk jazz and blues icon, that superlative storyteller of the squalid and the sublime, TOM WAITS.

Of all the artistes that Louche has covered in his decade + in cabaret, Waits is probably the one he’s sung the most, and definitely one of those closest to his own fractured, gin-soaked, bruised and blackened heart, and as such, this show has been a long time coming.

HEAR tales of inebriated love and loss, of murder and of idiosyncratic personages both obscure and outlandish…

SWAY in the electric soup of Waits’ unmistakable musical language as it washes over you like a sickly wave of pruno and Kool-Aid…

STOMP to the bombastic, metaphysical hymns (and hers), strange songs that wail and roar while you lay dreaming and the world dies screaming…

FEEL your hearts break in your chests, bathe in bourbon as the betrayals come thick and fast, and order one more for the road, hair of the dog that bit you and will likely bite again…

Come witness Louche’s rendering of those “Grim Reapers and Grand Weepers” that have made Waits such an icon throughout the years!

housemates are still laughing at him, so there's hope!
New idea! New jokes! New thoughts! But far from normal - nothing new there.
Let's all just have a ruddy bloody good laugh and keep looking forward.

LUKE WRIGHT'S THE BALLAD SELLER

TIMES:7.30PM

COSTS: TICKETS SOLD BY TABLE

£24/£36/£48/£72

BUY TICKETS NOW

-------------------------------

Back in Georgian times we got our news from poetry. Before papers, broadcasts or the internet, ballad sellers would hawk their doggerel on street corners for a penny. Scandalous affairs, grisly crimes, and colourful characters were brought to life in rhyming verse long before the first tabloid was printed.

Now Luke Wright has rewritten the very best of these stories for the modern ear: take a trip through the Drury Lane gin shops with the Boxing Baroness; filch oysters by the dozen with Dando, the celebrated gormandiser; and escape the Bull Ring with Jemmy the Rockman. Expect scandal, excess, and beautiful flawed humanity.

“His performances rumble with rage, passion and humour. They are also peppered with brilliantly smart observations. You will leave his show brimming with energy, heart pounding and brain whirring.” Guardian

“Wright’s full-throated reverie is spellbinding.” The Mirror

This show was commissioned by The Inn Crowd

-------------------------------

Are you ready to spin the wheel once more?

The pandemic has obviously put the industry on ice for a bit, but fear not caba-babes: WE'RE STILL HERE!

This show was originally meant to happen last November, with the cast voting on the theme of RESILIENCE (fitting, eh?), but then Lady Lockdown struck again, and back on pause we went. We've had a few shake-ups to the line-up along the way, but true to the theme, we've weathered the storm and are unbelievably excited that Cabaret Roulette is officially BACK IN ACTION BABY!

For CR virgins, here's how it usually works - we approach 8 performers from different disciplines and ask if they're free and up for making some new work.

Only then are they told the theme (there's the gamble) and then 2 months later we gather together to enjoy a night of bold risks, silly experiments and chaotic cabaret act debuts!

PERFORMING LIVE:

BOLLY ILLUSION - Slumdog Millionaire Lipsyncer

CHAI - Skinny Dairy-Free Wordsmith

CHIYO - Boylesque Baddie

INDY NILE - Kazoo-Tooting King of Camp

JASON KWAN - Glam-Pop Prinx

PI THE MIME - Corporeal Mime

SUE GIVES A F*CK - Comedienne

TUESDAY LAVEAU - Renegade Stripper
