Michael Topping - 'Heels over Head in Love!'

This was a very entertaining start to a Sunday from a very experienced and polished performer. His somewhat coy naughtiness had the varied audience laughing from the start.There were a number of old favourites – I enjoyed his smooth rendition of Cry Me A River, along with some fast and funny numbers that were much more explicit. The face-sitting stuff was good fun, as was his song about the 'baby mothers'.Maybe it was a pity that I wasn’t quick enough to think of something searching to ask in the questions section.I enjoyed this show very much, and I feel that audiences will grow as the festival progresses, and then the show will sparkle and fizz even more. As I was leaving I heard a mature lady say. 'He’s cute!' What Michael next needs is for a young man to make the same comment as they are leaving.

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.
