About the Show

A glittery bomb of circus, cabaret, and boylesque!

An all-male, sharp-shooting cabaret of burlesque with balls, high-flying circus bandits, and savage gender offenders. Get ready for a madcap safari through extravagant birdbath boylesque, too-close-for-comfort yo-yo tricks, valiant aerial acrobatics, irreverent interludes, ferocious fanfares, and show-stopping drag artistes.

Briefs established themselves as a leader on the cabaret and circus world stage at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, going on to win Best Circus at Perth Fringe in 2014, selling out consecutive London, Perth, Adelaide, and Edinburgh Festival runs.
