Boylexe arrives on 4th July

After last year’s series of sell-out shows, male striptease show, Boylexe returns on 4th July 2014 to resume its twice monthly residency at the new-look Shadow Lounge in Soho.

Boylexe is a unique show which features the inspiring stories of our stars, male striptease (‘boylesque’), a crazy spin on Twister and a performance of Shania Twain’s ‘Man I Feel Like A Woman’ like you’ve never seen before…

Boylexe features the very best of the UK’s underground cabaret scene including:

- Alp Haydar (London Cabaret Awards Audience Favourite 2012 & 2013)
- Mr Mistress (Erotic Awards Performer of the Year 2013)
- Phil InGud (Chicago and Polly Rae’s Between The Sheets)
- Randolph Hott (The Double R Club)
- The Mighty Moustache, aka Sir Alexander Leopold (Wonderground)

And introducing Davis, Nick Stiletto and Bobby Deevah

The first run of shows are now confirmed as follows: 4th July / 25th July / 1st August / 29th August – Doors at 7pm, show at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £15 but over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend, you can get a discount by using the word EASTER below.

Boylexe is aimed at thinking women and gay men who want a raucous, fun Friday night out but with a dash of brains, balls and sexiness. The show has been on hiatus while the Shadow Lounge is refurbished, the reopening late spring is one of Soho’s most highly anticipated events. It is an 18+ show.

‘We can’t wait to have Boylexe back in the new Shadow Lounge, it’s such a unique show that really fits with the venue. It’s been such a highlight over the past couple of years that we’re delighted to have it and the boys as part of our very exciting future.’ – Calum Ducat, The Shadow Lounge.

Alp Haydar in QX Magazine

Alp Haydar

Male striptease show Boylexe host Alp Haydar has been speaking to QX Magazine about growing up gay and Muslim.

He says, ‘You grow up viewing the world around you with cynicism, and sometimes envy – and however much acceptance was on offer through friendly teachers at school, or progressive commentary in media, being gay felt wrong, and very much like “the infidel’s problem” – not something you had any dialogue for at home, because within our community it just didn’t exist.’

And stand by people, Boylexe will be returning to an all-new Shadow Lounge in June.
