I've always found with burlesque that unless it's done really well it's just not worth it. Burlesque shows tend to be hit and miss and this one definitely falls into the latter category. It's a good idea to show a variety of artists (some of whom used this as an opportunity to promote their own solo shows at Fringe, which is fair enough) but there was not much to write home about here (and neither I nor my two companions felt enticed to follow up on any of the artists). The two acts that stood out for me were the amazing, very sweet contortionist and the MC who, with her bubbly personality, tried her heart out to whip up the audience's excitement (and who did a very good singing performance of her own). Having said that, the audience was perhaps the real star here: very generous and keen to have a good time they cheered along regardless (though the cheers became substantially less enthusiastic in the latter half of the show). I saw that this show has received some raving reviews elsewhere and I'm glad that there's people out there who really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, we didn't.
