Winner Best Circus Award 2014 FRINGE WORLDhttps://www.comedyfestival.com.au/2018/shows/briefs
Winner Best Cabaret Production 2015 Green Room Awards
Winner Best Cabaret Ensemble 2015 Green Room Awards
Described as an Aussie Cirque du Soleil meets Ru Paul’s Drag Race, get ready for a madcap safari through extravagant birdbath boylesque, too-close-for-comfort yo-yo tricks, valiant aerial acrobatics, irreverent interludes, ferocious fanfares and show-stopping drag artistes.
Briefs established themselves as a leader on the cabaret and circus world stage at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013, going on to win Best Circus at Perth FRINGE WORLD in 2014, selling out consecutive London, Perth, Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe runs and winning two Green Room Awards in 2015.
They return to Melbourne with their second show — an all-male, sharp shooting cabaret of high flying circus bandits, savage gender offenders and burlesque with balls!
Expect the unexpected as the Briefs boys present a riotous evening of intoxicating physicality, unexpected stumbles, gob-smacking comedy and ridiculous showmanship.
