JAN. 6 – FEB. 15
CLUB SWIZZE in AUSTRALIA
Leave your coat and your hang-ups at the door and let the hardest working middle-aged man in show business lead you to your table. The scent of last night’s revelry hangs in the air, hinting at what’s to come.
After three sell-out seasons of La Soiree at the Sydney Opera House, and a rampaging run around the world, its creators return this summer with a brand new show. Loose, raw and glorious, Club Swizzle is a night of demented entertainment where the crazy gets kicked up a notch.
Hanging onto the reigns of the chaos is Murray Hill; the man who “puts the ‘king’ back in f#*king funny”. Direct from New York, Mr Showbiz himself will corral this rollicking bevy of entertainers and keep things (only just) this side of decent.
With no stage, no rules and no regrets, there’s no place quite like it. So order yourself something stiff and get ready to dive into the deep end of debauchery at Club Swizzle.
SAT. DEC 13 AT 7:30PM
