If you’re in the mood for something a little bit filthy, the Arts Club will be hosting three nights of bawdy duo Unruly Baps’ new show Lairy Tales and Crappy Ever Afters. Retelling our most beloved bedtime stores with a boisterous twist, this cabaret based show proves to be one not to be missed.
Reminiscent of French and Saunders, or perhaps more Vic and Bob, Unruly Scrumptious and Lady Baps have been working together for a while. They met at the Rose Theatre in London where they started writing sketches together. The sketches went down so well that they decided to start promote themselves rather than other people. Their work is centered on their relationship and more importantly, one-upmanship.
Lairy Tales started as a scratch performance, developing into the show it is today, including Red Riding Hood’s slutty Grandma, a northern Cinderella and a lecherous Rumplestiltskin. When asked to sum up their show in three words there were a lot of phrases thrown around. The most intriguing of which: “Mild nut allergy”.
The show will be anarchic, brilliant and not for the faint of heart
Fri/Sat/Sun 10pm @ Ventnor Arts Club
