Male burlesque show Boylexe is a unique experience featuring the inspiring stories of its stars, male striptease (‘boylesque’) and a plethora of muppetry like you’ve never seen before. And now we’re hosting a special one-off in association with British Burlesque Legend Jo King…
London Burlesque fans are getting a treat in the shape of This is Burlexe, a brand new, unique and very contemporary burlesque and cabaret show from the people who brought you Boylexe.
It combines two of the best burlesque shows in London, Burlexe and Boylexe which have resided in Soho over the past five years.
The wonderful world of boylesque has become increasingly popular in recent years and naturally, a Boylesque Festival or two have cropped up to showcase talent from all over the world, proving that the boys are just as talented as the girls when it comes to the art of the tease.
Here’s how this year is looking so far…
A huge thank you to everyone who’s made male cabaret show Boylexe such a huge success this year! A big ol’ MERRY CHRISTMAS from us all.
Our fourth year in production, we’ve (hopefully) pushed more boundaries, shown more flesh and dumped more on Bobby Dee’vah than ever before.
This year, we bade farewell to the Shadow Lounge, took a walk on the wild side with a series of Shadow Masochism pop-ups, hooked up with our sister burlesque show Burlexe for the very first time for This Is Burlexe at the Hospital Club, popped up in Balans, ran a series of private shows and are ending the year with a hello to Cecil’s in London Bridge (come check us out on New Year’s Eve!).
It’s also been great working with new additions to the troupe including Baby Lame, Phoenix, Pi the Mime, Ruby Wednesday and Throberto and Shadow Masochism stars Tom Harlow, Alfie Ordinary, Ted Rogers, Ricky, Edgar and Andrei as well as old friends like Esquire DeLune, the Mighty Moustache and Maria Hurtz.
We’re very proud to be presenting the New Year’s Eve Cabaret Show This Is Burlexe at our favourite new venue, Cecil’s.
This Is Burlexe is a combination of our sister burlesque show Burlexe and male burlesque show Boylexe and takes our audience on a loose romp through the history of burlesque with stories, song, burlesque, quizzes, fun, games, DJs and dancing.
From Boylexe comes our host with the most Alp Haydar and our boylesquer par excellence, Mr Phil InGud and from Burlexe comes burlesque heroine Miss Glory Pearl, ingenue Emma Fisher and showgirl on the up and up, Ms Felicity Furore.
The doors open at 9pm and the first part of the show starts at approximately 9.30pm.
Cecil’s is at 8 Holyrood Street, London SE1 2EL and the nearest tube station is London Bridge.
Cecil’s is located in the back alleys of London Bridge and known for its array of house cocktails, featuring the herbs and spices of the Orient. We encourage everyone to dress to the nines to embrace the eras of extravagance that the club aims to echo, including the nightlife of 1930’s Shanghai.
We can’t wait to see you!!
