Disgraceful Cougars

Disgraceful Cougars
Fringe World. Salon Perdu Spiegeltent, The Pleasure Garden, Fringe World, Northbridge, WA. Feb 15-19, 2017

In Disgraceful Cougars, cabaret diva Disgraceful Kelly joins drag star Cougar Morrison, in a madcap romp that keeps the audience on their toes.

Playfully carefree, and slightly manic, this carefully disorganised cabaret sees the unlikely pairing discussing auditions, their love-lives, botox and just why Disgraceful Kelly is not on the poster. Gorgeously opposed, she is curves and old school-glamour while he rocks the worlds tiniest hot-pants.

Both performers have opera backgrounds and sing superbly. High points include Disgrace Kelly’s stunning Fever/Bieber parody, and Cougar Morrison’s outstanding signature song, Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, which is performed with a twist and a touch of regret. Excellent teamwork from Disgrace Kelly and Cougar Morrison and alter egos Caitlin Cassidy and Clint Strindberg.

A little racy for its 6.30pm time slot. This is a raucous but clever fast-paced good time.
