Hot Gay Time Machine
  • West End

Fresh from their sold-out, five-star run at the Edinburgh Fringe, join multi-award-winning duo, Zak Ghazi-Torbati & Toby Marlow (co-writer of SIX), for the cabaret comedy extravaGAYnza that well and truly SLEIGHS.

Full to the brim with aggressively enthusiastic dance routines and 'hilarious original musical numbers' (The Stage), Hot Gay Time Machine has all the ingredients for the perfect festive night on the town.

Just like A Christmas Carol - but with fewer ghosts and more gays - the dynamic double-act sing, shimmy and sashay the audience on a time travelling adventure through the history of their favourite topic: themselves. Covering all the most important moments in a gay man's life, like coming out to your mum and navigating the naked politics of the school locker room, this is a Christmas party like no other. It's been described as 'riotous, but subtly moving' (The List), though how anyone can call anything involving shorts this short 'subtle' is beyond us. You'll come away with your sides aching and your heart full - and maybe Toby's number if you're lucky and handsome.

So come all ye GAYthful. What are you waiting for, gay marriage? Well we got that already so come party with the gays!

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.
