Feeling frisky? Naughty not nice? If so, you might want to check out some of the slightly more risqué shows Fringe Festival is offering up this summer, featuring everything from raunchy circus burlesque and cabaret acts, to some very mischievous 18+ comedy stand-ups.
Here’s our pick of adults only Fringe shows coming at you in 2019.
Club Briefs & Hot Brown Honey
With a well-earned reputation for everything sexy, sassy, and downright fabulous, the boys from Briefs have teamed up with their sexy sisters from Hot Brown Honey and are back for another round of Fringe shenanigans; this time smack bang in the middle of the Surrealist Salon at Dali Land. Set your face to stunned and get ready to laugh the night away.
Making their ass-tastic debut this year are the sultry burlesque divas of AphroZodiac, with an adults-only astrological cabaret adventure. Throughout February they’ll seduce you with talent and tease, and serve up what will quite possibly be the cheekiest horoscope reading you’ve ever had.
Bubble Show for Adults Only
In what can only be described as a bubble blowing party for grown-ups, the Bubble Show for Adults Only is a soapy, kinky hotpot of theatre, burlesque, and bubble artistry. The surreal performance experience is renowned around the world and will have you completely immersed in naughty, in-your-face theatrics.
Winners of the 2017 Fringe World Best Circus Award, Sinsuality are back with a brand new show, hosted by none other than the outrageous Ringmistress BarbieQ. Come and explore the seven deadly sins through a sexy mix of pole dancing, aerial circus acts, and contortionists.
Little Death Club
Dubbed the darkest, funniest and most debauched kabarett club this side of Berlin, Little Death Club brings you a night of provocative hilarity, fantastic freaks, circus, fire-breathing and punk cabaret all rolled into one.
A Disney Tribute: Once Upon A Teaser
A newcomer to Perth Fringe, A Disney Tribute: Once Upon A Teaser showcases the talents of professional and emerging burlesque dancers from across Australia; taking you on a naughty magic carpet ride paying tribute to all your favourite Disney characters.
Cam Venn, Charles Horse Lays An Egg
The creation of self-proclaimed professional weirdo and idiot Cam Venn, Charles Horse Lays An Egg is a physical comedy based on the somewhat abstract premise of an unlikely hero alone on a space station holding the fate of humanity in his hands. We’re predicting it will be the most random comedy show you’ve ever seen.
Bella Green Is Charging For It
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work in a brothel, strip club, massage parlour, or adult shop, you need to see this show. Bella Green has worked on all of the above and joins Fringe to share her tales of sticky carpet, ultra high heels, and why paying for sex is oh-so similar to ordering a salad.
Turn Me Kiss Me Flip Me F#Ck Me
After a sold-out show in 2018, Madam Lush is back with more guilty pleasures in her new show, Turn Me Kiss Me Flip Me F#Ck Me. Be entertained by the sounds of sexy jazz, risqué burlesque, unexpected confessions, feathers and champagne. It’s Perth’s very own version of the Red Light District.
Baby Got Back: Size Queens
Mix a healthy dose of skin, sex, profanity and comedy and what do you get? Baby Got Back: Size Queens is what. This utterly uninhibited all-girl show combines striptease, naked circus, dancing and comedy in one giant psychosexual adventure designed to leave you in hysterical fits of laughter, and totally turned on.
In a comedy show where no topic is too filthy, Dirty Hoo-Haa! brings two dirty-minded teams of comedians to the stage for an uncensored battle of improv comedy gold. Leave your PC-ness at home; no punch line is off limits with this F-bomb dropping bunch.
Welcome to the high-energy performance that is, Rouge. Filthy, gorgeous and everything in between, this blend of tongue-in-cheek burlesque, acrobatics and cabaret is sure to get your heart beating. It’s circus, all grown up.
Can't get enough of Fringe? Here are all the must-see shows of the 2019 season.
