Fringe Review: Little Death Club @ Underbelly's Circus Hub
Share This Article:
Bernie Dieter’s Little Death Club is a “Weimar punk” style cabaret that is dark, dirty, and down-right delicious fun. Dieter, as master of ceremonies, is the rebellious love-child of the Grand High Witch and Morticia Addams as she rouses the crowd with her flirtatious cooings and comically piercing stare.

First on stage was Jess Love who performed a comically lack-lustre hula-hoop routine that, even when she missed some of her tricks, was still hilarious. Mingled with some shock humour when she stripped completely naked in the midst of her ‘big finish’, Love was incredible and set the tone for the evening. Indeed, following Love was the ‘bearded lady’ Kitty Bang Bang who, after a misleadingly dainty ballet routine, stripped to reveal a red one-piece with an attached fake beard on the crotch. Appearing later in the background of other acts performing an array of acrobatics, she closed the show with a stunning fire-eating routine.
