Show Details

The world’s hottest all-male boylesque group are back and ready to grab Christmas by the baubles!


Having glitter-bombed the globe as we know it with their iconic and hilarious brand of circus, drag, burlesque and comedy, the Briefs boys are taking London back to the third dimension this winter.


With their trademark skill and humour they test the limits of masculinity, taste and decency. Expect interstellar aerials, incredible artistry, and warped speed strippers from outer space to Underbelly's festive spiegeltent.


Prepare yourselves for a very close encounter with the Briefs boys.
