Death club really had the feeling of being part of an elite jazz club. Bernie was a fabulous host and great at involving the crowd. Really enjoyed the music throughout and it made such a difference having a live band. The acts were phenomenal and without flaw. Lovely show inside a beautiful tent that leaves you wanting more!

This Cabaret is absolutely awesome, stunning and off the wall brilliant! Bernie is utterly delicious and her stars just blow your socks off - if you haven’t seen it, you should but know that it’s naughtier than a naughty thing!

If you know AA Milne, then you will be familiar with the illustration of Piglet in a storm with his ears streaming behind him. Now imagine an audience in the sell out Circus Hub tent all with their ears streaming out behind them from the force coming off the stage.
This show is gloriously sacrilegious blast of energy. Like Spinal Tap, turn the star count up to 11. Fully deserved the standing ovation at the end.

THE BEST SHOW AT THE FESTIVAL!! 10 stars

I've seen many cabaret shows over the years in Edinburgh and Bernie's show blows them out of the water. This is punk kabarett at its best, original, unique, funny, moving, shocking, feminist and poignant!

Bernie is a true superstar and WHAT A VOICE, like a Weimar Hedwig and the Angry Inch, recommending to everyone.

Bernie Dieter’s Little Death Club is a Berlin-inspired experience of glitter and grunge. It successfully bemuses the audience while welcoming them into Dieter’s weird and wonderful world.

Broadway World (5/5 stars) 87 days ago

When you step into the Little Death Club, the lights are low, the band is jamming and the anticipation is palpable. Bernie Dieter, star of La Clique, is the ringmaster in this circus of mischief -a princess of punk rock who demands your attention, appreciation and an intimate connection. And...

Scottish Field (5/5 stars) 88 days ago

It is a very sad moment when the show ends, not a watch has been checked during the show and it’s with wonderment that the audience realises that an hour has passed since entering the world of Bernie Dieter.

For those that want to see what the world looks like through illegal mid altering substances, stay this side of the law and go and see this show.

London Student (5/5 stars) 88 days ago

Little Death Club is a more-mature, political and relevant piece of grown-up ‘kabarett’ that feels shot straight from a Berlin basement. It’s everything great about the Fringe distilled into a thick neon syrup and injected straight into your veins for the ultimate late-night kick. Even at 8pm.

Southside Advertiser (4/5 stars) 92 days ago

The format of the show is in essence a simple one, this is Bernie Dieter’s Little Death Club and be in no doubt that this lady is in total control of everything that happens here, and everyone in it. The format allows us to meet Bernie and her dysfunctional family of misfits with a potentially ever changing array of performers and, tonight, the Spiegeltent on the Meadows was a perfect stage and setting for this show.

Broadway Baby (5/5 stars) 93 days ago

The air of the Speigeltent circus hub is thick with dark debauchery, smoke and gin soaked Weimer punk jazz, setting the atmosphere for a celebration of the extraordinary. As the we take our seats, we are ominously watched by the various cast members - a despondent mime losing himself in...

Culture Fix (5/5 stars) 98 days ago

Bernie Dieter presides over Little Death Club - a raucous cabaret experience that allows us to embrace the delightfully debauched in its evening of music, comedy and circus. Little Death Club is decadent hedonistic fun and one of the premiere Edinburgh Festival Fringe's attractions.
Little Death Club's variety of sinfully delicious performances result in an outstanding evening of cabaret. It's razor-sharp punk attitude and the genuine talent of all involved help assert it as a thrilling evening of hedonistic debauchery. Dieter commands the stage with a powerful presence, whilst the rich variety of guest performers deliver further artistic delights.
