The Adonis Cabaret Show
Advantages: Eye candy, good laugh
We booked the Adonis Cabaret Show as part of my friends hen do in Brighton, 8th September 2012. I have decided to write this review today whilst the experience is fresh in my memory.
We had pre-booked tickets to the show, which was held at Oceana on Brighton sea front, you do need to pre-book as they do not accept payment on the door as each show sells out anyway. This was booked as part of a hen party package and cost £30 per person. We arrived at 7pm as stated on the tickets and queued for approximately fifteen minutes whilst being entertained by the drag queen 'Candy' in the queue.
We entered the building and we were greeted by a nice smiley, hunky guy who gave us our free cocktail vouchers, he even chucked in a couple free as we made him laugh. We were then showed into the main showroom and we took our seats in the middle of the room. The seats have an aisle down the middle of them for easier access but also for the stippers to interact with the crowd.
Once we had our seats we needed to claim our cocktails at the bar as these had to be claimed before the show started. There was also a buffet included in the price, the food wasn't bad, typical buffet food but it was nice to have a bite to eat before we started drinking.
We settled down with our food and drinks and we were welcomed by 'Candy' who did a song and got the crowd laughing and warmed up. Candy then swiftly introduced the four 'boys' on stage and they proceeded to dance / strip wearing fireman uniforms. The routine was over quite quickly but this was just the taster. Each guy was then called up to perform their own routines to the cheering / screaming crowd of women and a handful of gay men.
In between each act Candy came up to tell a few jokes, perform a song and introduce the next act. There were about 3 breaks in total to be able to go to the bar, go for a cigarette or for a toilet break. These were welcomed as we finished our drinks quite quickly.
Each act was brilliant, they all had very different routines such as Superman, Army soldier, Drummer etc. The drummer was particularly impressive as this was all done in the dark with glow paint and was really effective! There was lots of interaction with the crowd with the boys walking and dancing down the aisles, the girls were rubbing their baby-oiled chests and licking squirty cream off their chests! The acts also occasionally picked out girls from the crowd and performed a routine on stage with them.
Candy then came out and asked all the 'hens' and birthday girls to come up on stage, two of the boys were sat on chairs on stage and the girls had to perform a 30 second sexy dance for them - I was so glad I didn't have to do this I would have been mortified!
They also held a raffle in the middle of the show to raise money for Help for Heroes and McMillan Cancer Nurses which was good, I was disappointed that we didn't get to hear the total raised though. The prizes were a baseball cap, t-shirt and sash, our friend the hen was given these for being the hen anyway.
The boys were all lovely and good looking, I was worried they wouldn't be that attractive but the girls were all very pleased! Photo's were taken by photographers throughout the night as we were not allowed to take our own, they were then uploaded to the website on the Monday after for us all to see and download which is great as they didn't try to make more money out of us for this. At the end each group had their photo taken with the boys so we all had that to look forward to seeing on the Monday. We were also handed a 2012 calendar on arrival to keep which was a nice touch but it would have been better if it was 2013!!
Overall we had an absolutely brilliant night, the boys were nice, the acts were great and the drinks were not too pricey. I'd fully recommend the Adonis Cabaret Show and we'd all go again at the drop of a hat!
Thanks for reading
Summary: Worth the £30
