Du Beke gives a hilarious and dazzling show filled with humour, dance and song

Du Beke delves into his start in dance explaining his humble beginnings as the only boy who showed up to dance class. I must admit they age demographic is a little older with a lot of mature women going to see this show, but as a strictly fan and a gen-Zer I thought the show was very funny and I had a great time.

Du Beke brought his good friend Lance Ellington to perform singing a couple swing classics together, the band were also fantastic keeping up with the both of them fabulously.

Du Beke had two female dancers also to partner up with, performing a fox trot, a fiery tango and other styles. Du Beke also had a segment where he invited audience members to text him questions to answer creating hilarious banter between himself and the audience, it very entertaining.

Du Beke is as witty as ever and as talented as ever.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
