Do you remember the 80s as a sexy time full of cross dressing, leather, and power ballads? If you can remember when big hair graced the pages of Playboy magazine then you will love ‘80s Up Late a circus show that’s not afraid to get a bit steamy. Featuring riske silks, hoops, and acrobatic routines alongside sexy feats of strength and classic ‘80s references dropped by a hilarious host this is one show that has so much hairspray in the air you’ll be afraid to light a match!
Pulling absolutely no punches from the start, every act kicks down the door the second the lights go down and the performers light up. The skimpy outfits requiring host Andrew Silverwood to get out the wet floor sign and the skilful yet sensuous high stakes silks demand that the sign stays out! Playful and sexy, the show features leather and chains – these steamy bondage scenes slaying in their sensuality. The stakes get higher and higher – from a three way tousle of acrobatics and hand balancing to ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ – salt bae moves hilarious and hot at the same time, to launching a leather clad performer straight onto a trapeze each vignette is sizzling.
Silverwood is the perfect host for this show – role playing several well known ‘80s stars and reading the room with ease. The displays of strength are so much hotter in the steamy version of the show. And speaking of steamy how about the chemistry between these performers? There is fire on spread legs, lip biting heat in aerial bondage, and a blindfolded silks act that is guaranteed to hit the spot. So, pop on your diamonds and pearls and get ready to break free with the sexiest circus you’ll ever see. If you want to know what love is, then ‘80s Up Late can show you.
You can see all the steamy 80s action at The Pleasure Garden until 13th February 2022. TICKETS
