Make cabaret queer again! Bursting onto the London scene, Tropicana is the future of queer comedy cabaret. Soon to be Edinburgh Fringe's most engaging LGBTQIA+ act, the show explores, bends and abuses the gender binary through comedy on a backdrop of electrifying 80s hits. Singing classic hits ranging from Spandau all the way to ABC, Aidan draws from their own tumultuous experience being queer in a small industrial town. Nothing is safe from ridicule, such as body image, straight folk and the dreaded ASOS gays.

Aidan's combination of powerful vocals, gripping stage presence and brilliantly written comedy makes this a show you don't want to miss. The audience was simply blown away and the standing ovation was well deserved. I cannot recommend this show enough, GO SEE IT!

Perfect end to a fabulously entertaining day. Great voice plus a comedy routine that was funnier than some of the comics we’ve seen. Surprisingly poignant as well. Lovely person, worth staying up for.

Funny yet poignant show. Great 80s tunes delivered powerfully by a fantastic singer. Couple of minor volume issues but didn't take away from our enjoyment. Thank goodness for the flock of swans.
