Festive variety, cabaret and more at the Roundhouse
Looking for something different this Christmas? Look no further than the Roundhouse, with a double bill of inspired festive silliness.
Comedy variety troupe Slightly Fat Features: A Fat Lot of Good welcomes those of all ages, shapes and sizes to an award-winning bill of cabaret stunts, orchestrated madness, and hilarious routines.
Hot on its heels comes sell-out show Scottee: Camp, where the great Scottee himself is joined by cabaret friends Dickie Beau, Ginger Johnson, Japans People, Jayde Adams, Jess Love and more. If you like camp clichés, limp wrists, naff catch phrases and cheap tinsel (and who doesn't), you'll love this.
So get booking for Slightly Fat Features: A Fat Lot of Good for 25-28 November, 2pm & 7.30pm and Scottee: Camp for 9-12 December, 8pm. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
