The Body Tights Man Show

The Three Gaga men wear full body tights to produce a show of circus value that balances between being a little bit freakish and providing unique entertainment. With the flexible suites donned, the three men adopt an almost alien identity. In the suits they are provided with an anonymity that allows them to perform weird and wonderful stunts with greater entertainment value. They frequently emerge from the tights, revealing the characters of the men, to entertain with unsubtle and novel Japanese humour.The stunts they perform are original and fascinatingly innovative, from a new take on balloon tricks to stretching out the tights to impersonate Dinosaurs and Marilyn Monroe. The show became something of a work of art for periods, manipulating projections of great paintings such as making the Mona Lisa frown.Occasionally however the humour was too drawn out, milking the silliness for too long. On other times the humour failed to cross the comedy language barrier. Despite hinting at it, the show goes further than being a circus act. The audience was left either aghast or on the edge of seats, mainly from a fear of balloons exploding in our faces. This is a show well worth seeing for silliness, shocks and the talents of these 3 men.

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

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.
