Grant Sharkey: A peek at 6/40 IGNORAMUS and a variety show!

Grant Sharkey will be trying out some new stuff from 6/40: IGNORAMUS on Thursday 23 July 2015 from 7.30pm in our downstairs cafe space.

Cha Cha Boom Boom will be there too, doing some of her hilarious routines

Winchester’s Cha Cha Boom Boom is quite possibly THE most remarkable burlesque artist you will ever see!

Cha Cha Boom Boom started her own style of ‘burlesquing’ in 2007 when she ‘accidentally’ won The Whoopee Club’s ‘Tournament of the Tease’ at the Bethnal Green Workings Mens Club, London with her act ‘Swan Fake’ a parody of Swan Lake, stripping and humourous social commentry of the cult of celebrity.

Shocked at her success at irreverently cheeking convention Cha Cha has gone on to bring her unique vision to cabaret, burlesque, comedy and spoken word audiences across the land.

Plus some comedy from his friend, Darryl Edge (self-described on his Twitter account as “Tickled Pig 2014 Finalist. Idiot. Lover. Twattish Yarn Spinner. Southampton.”)

Entry by optional donation – please give what you can to keep The Art House‘s lights on! Alternatively, pop a donation of non-perishable food in the No Limits food bank collection basket near the counter.
