Beginning with a scantily-clad attired man snorting glitter as if it was cocaine, ending with a dance number complete with an over-sized rubber ducky, and featuring knife juggling, a disturbingly aerobic trampoline number, and a game of darts that opts to use sex toys instead in-between, Big Glittery Shit Show is definitely not your parents’ variety show!
If you’re prepared to check your expectations and emotions at the door – it’s likely you’ll either be offended, disgusted, aroused or amused, or potentially a combination of all four – then this crazy, sparkly trip could just be what the doctor ordered.
There’s no depth to the show, so if you’re hoping for a deeper meaning as to just why you spent an hour of your evening watching a woman serenade a rubber duck and cop an eyeful of a man’s bedazzled backside, then you’re shit out of luck! This is crude, irreverent, non-sensical entertainment…and sometimes that’s all you need.
Closing out on the 24th November as part of the Brisbane Powerhouse’s Wonderland Festival (November 21st – December 1st 2019) (tickets and information here), Big Glittery Shit Show is the dominant slap your weekend needs…and if you don’t enjoy yourself, the fact that it literally describes itself as a shit show means you’ve only got your taste to blame.
