Briefs Boys head back to Perth for Fringe World

Briefs BoysDescribed by Time Out London as “a blazing disco ball of energy exploding in a nightclub that’s inside a theatre, inside a circus tent”, award-winning all-male burlesque troupe, Briefs return to Fringe World Perth to perform their international hit show Briefs: The Second Coming, and for the West Australian debut of their acclaimed variety show Club Briefs.

Briefs: The Second Coming will take audiences through a madcap safari of extravagant birdbath boylesque, too-close-for- comfort yo-yo tricks, valiant aerial acrobatics, irreverent interludes, ferocious fanfares and show-stopping drag artistes.

For its anticipated West Australian debut, the boys will also bring their variety show, Club Briefs for four nights only. The cheeky boylesque stars will bring some of their crowd-pleasing acts, plus a cavalcade of hand-picked guest cabaret and circus artists from around Fringe World Perth.

From their humble beginnings playing in Brisbane’s underbelly of late-night speakeasies and renegade circus cabarets, the Briefs boys have since toured internationally with an all star cast that features audience favourites, ringmaster and bearded lady Shivannah (Fez Faanana), Australia’s hybrid super brat Mark ‘Captain Kidd’ Winmill (Las Vegas’ 2011 King of Burlesque), avante garde glamour puss Dallas Dellaforce, fresh faced local virtuoso Louis Biggs, Brooklyn Zoo escapee from NYC, the Evil Hate Monkey (Las Vegas’ 2010 King of Burlesque), everyone’s favourite handyman and bulter Lachy Shelley and new trouble maker, circus superstar Thomas Worrell.

The hooligans that are Briefs have experienced their share of success, taking out Best Circus Act at Fringe World Perth for three consecutive years in 2012, 2013 & 2014, whilst their debut show All Male, All Vaudeville, All Trash received nominations for Best Show and the Design Award at 2013 Dublin Fringe and Best One-Off Production at the 2012, 2013 and 2014 London Cabaret Awards.

Expect the unexpected in this array of satire and skills as the Briefs boys present burlesque…with balls!
