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!!
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.
Here are a few of our favourite moments from the past year but please feel free to tell us yours via our Facebook or Twitter pages…

Now in its third year, boylesque show Boylexe is a unique show featuring the inspiring stories of its stars, male striptease (‘boylesque’) and a plethora of muppetry like you’ve never seen before…
After 60+ shows in the Shadow Lounge alongside its sister show Burlexe, Boylexe has now moved to take up a new residency at Cecil’s in London Bridge in the shape of a good ol’ fashioned tea dance.
This new ‘Boylexperience’ features the Boylexe show, welcome cocktail drink, buffet followed by DJs and dancing in a luscious cocktail bar with the feel of a 1920s-style Shanghai speakeasy.
Every Boylexe show is different and stars the very best of the UK’s underground cabaret scene featuring our regular stars among others:
- Alp Haydar (London Cabaret Awards Audience Favourite 2012 & 2013)
- Phil InGud (Chicago and Polly Rae’s Between The Sheets)
- Meth (Drag Queens of London, The Meth Lab, Erotic Awards Performer of the Year 2013)
- Randolph Hott (The Double R Club)
- Pi the Mime and ‘pick up artist’ Bobby Deevah
Boylexe is aimed at thinking girls and gay men who want a raucous, fun time but with a dash of brains, balls and sexiness.
The action kicked off in November but we’ll be back in the New Year.
A huge thanks to everyone who came down to those shows and made them so incredibly fun!
