Vaudeville shows have been making a comeback – which is hardly surprising when troupes such as The Pretty Things Peepshow boast sword swallowing, burlesque, hula hoops, comedy, whip-cracking and something called the Transylvanian Spike Box of Doom!

Appearing at The Cluny on Sunday 9th August, Pretty Things are – as the name suggests – just as beautiful as they are brave. Roll up, roll up, then, for Madeline Glasseater: Australia’s Sideshow Showgirl; with whirling hips and pretty red lips, we are assured this glamour gal will leave us breathless and begging for more. Next, get swept away by Go-Go Amy, the girl with the scarlet tresses and a million dresses who comes direct from Hollywood. If you’re a burlesque fanatic, there’s sure to be plenty to enjoy, and then some.

In addition to the quick changes and comedy stylings of these two ravishing ladies, there will be danger and derring-do from The Death Do Us Part Danger Show. Husband and wife team, Rachel Renegade and Charlie Atlas will risk life and limb to entertain us with their jaw-dropping knife acts and against-the-clock heroics.

On the road since 2009 and having performed over 700 shows worldwide, The Pretty Things Peepshow goes some considerable distance to prove that the future of entertainment sometimes lies in the past.

The Pretty Things Peepshow is at The Cluny, Newcastle on Sunday 9th August.
