Cabaret

Tropicana

80's synth wave. Stand up comedy. Award-winning gender-bending nonsense. Need we say more? 

Join queer cabaret icon Aidan Sadler as they take you to Tropicana! Nothing is safe from ridicule so be led on an exploration of body image, heteronormativity and sometimes wearing a dress round the house on a muggy day.

Here, you'll experience belting synth-pop nostalgia punctuated with world class stand-up comedy. Featuring electrifying hits from Spandau Ballet to ABC, Tropicana returns to The Kings Head from its sell-out, extended run at Edinburgh 2021 to explore, bend and abuse the gender binary.
