Description

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.

Fringebiscuit (4/5 stars) 29 days ago

Flaunting a belter of a voice, great stage presence and confident crowd work, Aidan Sadler’s comedy is relatable and amiably edgy. Well-honed quips and savvy songs explore toxic masculinity, hilarious personal foibles and light-hearted reflections on the LGBTQ+ community.

The Wee Review (4/5 stars) 38 days ago

A wonderfully camp, energetic and moving hour of music and comedy, featuring an absolute tornado of a cabaret star
