A slave to comedy...

Stand-up and S&M combine

Comics are to appear alongside fetish cabaret acts in a bizarre new show.

Stand-ups Brendon Burns and Ivor Dembina will be appearing at the Skin Two cabaret as part of the Rubber Ball event next month.

The line-up also includes Alex Jacob, who is billed as " master of the bullwhip", Fifties burlesque star Immodesty Blaize and "artistically rude" Walter.

The event, at London's Barbican Centre is not the first time the worlds of comedy and sadomasochism have combined.

Dembina has a one-man show dedicated to his fetishes called SadoJudaism, while a regular show in London's West End, Comic Discipline, combines a game show with pervy punishments. A version of that show will be performed at the Rubber Ball event.

The cabaret takes place at 6pm on Sunday October 5. For tickets, priced £10, call 020 7627 3332.
