Our last show of the day could either be fantastic (in a naughty way) or dire. It’s Danger Strip Show, at Piccolo, Assembly George Square Gardens, at midnight on the night of Tuesday 21st. This is the blurb: “The most jaw-dropping, mind-popping, eye-watering experience of this year’s Fringe! With unbridled attitude, this firecracker of a show performs death defying stunts while honouring the world’s oldest artform (striptease) for your entertainment. Risk ass-essment required! Presented by Chaz Royal and The London Burlesque Festival.”
It ought to be superb, but the first time we came to Edinburgh we saw the Chaz Royal Best of Burlesque show and it was the worst burlesque I’ve ever seen! Five years on, we’re giving them the benefit of the doubt – and I am curious to see how they combine the danger aspect with the striptease! Check back around 1.30 am (or maybe tomorrow morning!) to see if we managed to stick with it. By then the next preview blog should be available to read too.
A very satisfying mix of burlesque and the more dangerous circus skills, like fire eating, glass eating, and sticking pins through your skin. Presented with humour and chutzpah, and a very enjoyable way to round off the day.
