Bernie Dieter’s Club Kabarett named as first show at Soho venue Underbelly Boulevard

Live entertainment company Underbelly has anounced the inaugural show of its new Soho venue Underbelly Boulevard.

Bernie Dieter’s Club Kabarett will open at Underbelly Boulevard, Soho on 17 October 2023 for a strictly limited 12-week run.

The show is a luxuriously gin soaked, Weimar-punk evening of dangerously funny kabarett, breathtaking circus and fire-breathing sideshow at its most inappropriate, provocative and hilarious best.

This will mark the UK premiere of Club Kabarett following sell out seasons in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Japan and Bernie Dieter’s previous shows, Little Death Club and Berlin Underground, in London and Edinburgh.

Bernie Dieter’s Club Kabarett features acts from Adam Malone, pole dancer Blue Phoenix, The Seifert Sisters, aerialist Joe Keeley and Bella Diosa, all supported by band leaded Mark Elton and musicians Frankie South and Laura Williams.

In addition to Club Kabarett, the Boulevard Theatre will host an intimate, eclectic and unexpected curated programme of exclusive late evening live music from stars of the stage, screen and music worlds.

London Comedy Allstars. Underbelly’s flagship comedy brand, as seen on the Southbank, Earls Court and Cavendish Square, comes to Boulevard for a monthly late evening residency, with the finest of comedians performing in different line-ups each month.

BATSU! Following ongoing residencies in New York and Chicago and a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, the hit comedy experience that merges the Japanese batsu game with American improv humour, will also run at Underbelly Boulevard. BATSU! features comedy warriors testing their improvisation wits to avoid painful, humiliating and ridiculous punishments. 

Circus Lates – monthly residencies from some of the UK’s hottest circus and cabaret companies. Late evening spectaculars with DJs to keep that party going into the small hours.

Kids DO Soho. Boulevard’s curated programme of exceptional family entertainment for toddles to teens. The Kids DO Soho programme will run at weekends with additional shows in half terms and school holidays.

Further information on dates, shows and other performances to be announced soon.

Ed Bartlam and Charlie Wood, directors of Underbelly, said; “We are beyond thrilled to announce our first headline show for Boulevard, our initial programming strands and of course our superlative new restaurant partner.  Bernie Dieter’s Club Kabarett is a trailblazing and wild cabaret show, with infectious live music and world class circus skills at its core. It’s perfect for Boulevard and perfect for Soho. There is so much more to announce in terms of our wider programme but these first strands are part of our wider plan to make Underbelly Boulevard a thumping cultural centre in the heart of London, presenting the very finest in live entertainment in the most intimate and exceptional of venues.

Kitty Fisher’s Group, the team behind acclaimed Kitty Fisher’s in Mayfair and Cora Pearl in Covent Garden, will be opening their new restaurant, Cafe Kitty, in Underbelly Boulevard.

Fawn James from Soho Estates said “I am hugely excited for Underbelly Boulevard’s opening plans. Bernie Dieter’s Club Kabarett is a fabulous choice for their inaugural headline show and truly encompasses the essence of Soho. This building has so much to offer, so with Cafe Kitty as the restaurant and the additional late night and daytime residency plans, they will be providing something for everyone. It was always my dream for the venue to be multifunctional and provide entertainment for all and Underbelly will definitely be achieving that, therefore cementing my view that they are the perfect operator for the Boulevard.”
