FRINGE REVIEW: Club Briefs
The late-night younger sibling of the widely acclaimed Briefs, Club Briefs leaves nothing to the imagination. If nudity and a totally politically incorrect sense of humour is your thing, Club Briefs will be your kind of weird. Returning for their sixth show in Perth, if you haven’t seen the Briefs Factory boys by now, what have you been doing?
You will be guided through the evening by MC and glamorous/hilarious/wonder human Fez Fa’Anana, as the Briefs boys give you a taste of what is on offer in their full-length show. Club Briefs differs from the classic show in the range of ‘special friends’ that come to visit. This year, audiences were treated to a vocal display by Odette Mercy, from new fit-out Hot Brown Honey, who left the tent in awe with her cover of James Brown’s ‘It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World.’ The boys from Barbu also stopped by at Club Briefs, providing a high energy and seriously impressive physical act. Among the ‘friends’, the Briefs Boys deliver with short, sharp and hilariously funny performances. There are plenty of opportunities for ‘disco dancing’ with audience members encouraged to get in on the action at every chance.
A blend of circus, cabaret, nudity and real, raw talent makes Club Briefs a seriously unique Fringe destination. All delivered with a sense of humour, you can’t help but disco dance your way out of the tent. Don’t bring your mum, or your grandma. Have a drink, buy a raffle ticket and leave your manners at the door.
