Circus Trick Tease @ The Ringbox

Cheap cop-out time: this show is pretty much the same as last year’s Circus Trick Tease.
And that’s just completely brilliant.
Even with full knowledge of what was to come, I loved every minute of this performance; Tinkle’s spotlight-stealing petulance, Ghazanfar’s deadpan clown-foolery during the shadow-sex show, Plonk’s sensitive new-age strongman routine. In fact, during his “pick-up” routine (where he lifts four women plucked from the audience at once), he selected a girl sitting next to me again.
That’s two years in a row. Uncanny.
In fact, just about the only noticeable difference from last year’s show was the fact that Tinkle didn’t throw surplus-to-requirement condoms at the departing audience. Oh, and there were about twice as many people as last year.
And that second bit makes me very, very happy for them. Bravo, Circus Trick Tease :)
