Last but by no means least, on the 16th Feb, the Kings Theatre in Portsmouth will be playing host to Joe Black's House of Burlesque... in their words, "Gin drinking cabaret darling, musical comedy misfit, drag clown and acid tongued ringmaster. Living somewhere between the stages of music, theatre and comedy, Joe Black takes an audience firmly by the hand and guides them into a place where the strange and unusual reign supreme." ..... book me a ticket NOW!!!!!!
