FRINGE REVIEW: TRICKSTER, LA BOHÉME, FEBRUARY 2017

Dark, dastardly and often delightful, Trickster is a one man cabaret by Bradley Storer playing at La Bohéme until February 19.

Entering “from the rear”, Bradley takes the stage wearing only his underwear and white face paint and treats his audience to a gorgeous rendition of ‘Babushka’ by Kate Bush. His voice is divine, his humour is wicked and his accompanist is fabulous.

In true cabaret style, Bradley tells stories of his life, segues into songs and makes jokes at his own expense; the twist with Trickster, though, is that it’s dripping with black humour, risqué jokes (some teetering on the edge of tasteless and some leaping straight off it) and songs about the darker side of life.

See this show if you’re tired of the usual cabaret formula and want your one hour musical offering with a generous dose of the grotesque.
