Ten clichés in cabaret shows

By Adrienne Truscott

1. The thumb-pinky finger ‘call-me’ gesture.

2. The ‘two-finger to the eyes’ ‘I’m watching you gesture’.

3. Hand to ear gesture demanding audible applause that isn’t organically forthcoming. Often accompanies burlesque, juggling and opera?

4. Taking off clothes for effect (guilty)

5. Rap songs on a ukulele.

6. White guys beatboxing.

7. Water pouring over a suspended male acrobat.

8. 1980s mullets

9. Women with breasts.

10. Guys with dicks.
