Tuesday August 9th & Wednesday August 10th!

louche [loosh]
Of questionable taste or morality; decadent, dubious, shady; disreputable or sordid in a rakish or appealing way.

What makes an outwardly normal little boy from a well-balanced family grow up to be a hyperbolic, aberrant and painted purveyor of morally questionable entertainment?

Through song, soliloquy and singular shtick, rant, rhyme and unreason, Benjamin Louche (winner ‘Best Host’ at the 2014 London Cabaret Awards) charts his slow and worrying malformation from wannabe actor to munchkin, to mummy, to malcontent mime, to wannabe novelist, into the dark, the disquieting and the quintessentially LOUCHE.

“Reliably Sinister” -Time Out

“His crumbling poetics [are] a blur of arcane wordage and macabre lustre, a deliciously jaded decadence” –
