As our next show, Varietease-a-Rama! is just around the corner – next Friday, 12th September in fact (tickets are still available here: https://carmarthenshirelyrictheatre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873519308/events?show_id=873519308), we thought you’d like to get to know our fabulous performers… And seeing as he’s on all the posters, we’ll start with Kiki Lovechild…
Heading a bill that literally screams ‘Variety is the spice of life!’ is Kiki Lovechild, international performer, acclaimed cabaret entertainer and inventor of ‘Furlesque’, where quirky puppet burlesque creations come to life on stage! Based in London and best known on the cabaret circuit, Kiki has also performed successful solo clown shows across the UK, including a five-star rated run at Brighton Fringe Festival.
With routines draw upon his training in mime with celebrated physical theatre tutor Desmond Jones, clowning with the world famous Angela de Castro, puppetry with The Little Angel Theatre, circus skills at Circus Space and experience in illusion, escapology and more, his quirky acts have made him a regular on the burlesque circuit. High-whooping audiences have seen him perform at high profile events including Volupte, The Double R Club, Madam JoJo’s, Kinky & Quirky, Burly Q, World Burlesque Games, London Burlesque Festival and many more, while his solo show, the hour long The Weatherman, which takes a lighthearted look at spending a lifetime in purgatory through clowning and illusion, thrilled audiences and was met with enthusiastic reviews during runs at Brighton Fringe Festival and in Grimsby.
