Burlesque with balls
Burlesque, according to Wikipedia, 'overlaps in meaning with caricature, parody and travesty, and, in its theatrical sense, with extravaganza'.

Certainly that's the meaning we use today, vibrant, extravagant, colourful and perhaps slightly off-colourful performances. When performed by the all-male, award-winning boylesque group Briefs it's probably an understatement.

Briefs' Fringe World triumphant return is long-anticipated and very welcome.

A trailer of the work of the boys can be seen on YouTube here.

Their variety show, called Club Briefs is also on the 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th of February.

From their simple beginnings in Brisbane Briefs have since toured internationally with an all star cast featuring the ringmaster and bearded lady Shivannah (Fez Faanana),
and the Las Vegas 2011 King of Burlesque Mark 'Captain Kidd' Winmill and more.

Briefs took out the Best Circus Act at Fringe World in Perth for 2012, 2013 & 2014, while the overseas shows have garnered many more awards.

Briefs runs at 7:45pm from the 2nd to the 14th of February
Club Briefs is on for only four performances , the 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th February.
