Supported by self-proclaimed gypsy Scotsman, singer/songwriter Colin Lillie whose latest EP was mixed by Shane Nicholson on Beverley Hillbilly Records and features a duet with Britt – this show promises to pack a punch and sell-out.

DOUBLE TROUBLE with Candyland & OMGWTF

For One Night Only – Candyland & OMGWTF come together for this exclusive DOUBLE TROUBLE 2022 Newcastle Fringe event.

CANDYLAND

Welcome to Candyland, a world with a little bit of sugar, spice, and all things nice… and maybe a touch of sour to tickle your taste buds! Enjoy a tasty swirl of naughty circus cabaret fun sure to satisfy every taste and leave you yearning for… the lolly jar. Don’t believe us? Come and have a taste.

OMGWTF

A dynamite, late-night romp of burlesque, circus, drag, sideshow and magic. We light up the stage with delightfully devilish displays of debauchery the likes of which you’ll never be able to unsee. One whole hour that represents approximately 169 years of repenting for sins you didn’t even commit, only witnessed. On the Scoville Scale, this once-in-a-lifetime kinda spice makes the Carolina Reaper look like a silly little ice cube.

That’s right: We’ve just sassed the hottest chili in the world and we’d do it again. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you won’t know where to look or what to do with your hands. Come for the shock, stay for the awe.

Spooky Men’s Chorale

MEN, SINGING SONGS. SOME OF THEM ARE FUNNY.

The Spooky Men’s Chorale is a vast, rumbling, steam powered and black clad behemoth, seemingly accidentally capable of rendering audiences moist eyed with mute appreciation or haplessly gurgling with merriment. Based on the twin pillars of grand foolishness and the quest for the perfect subwoofer-rattling boofchord, the Spooky Men seek to commentate on the absurdity and grandeur of the modern male armed only with their voices, a sly collection of hats and facial hair, and a twinkle in the eye.
