Looking for a variety cabaret-style show? Wednesday nights at The Wiggle Room are full of talent from the world of comedy, burlesque and music.
Danny Dee (Dan Derkson) hosted The Voix-de-Ville show in a suit and underwear. This show offers a chance to performers to take part in what I would describe as an adult talent show with a $100 cash prize for the winner (and fun games for the crowd too).
Music with La Mécanique
La Mécanique brought me back to the 90’s with their industrial-type rock. This underground band got the show going with a lot of Energy.
Comedy with Kate Conner
Kate Conner tells it as it is. She’s extremely funny and after doing stand up for three years, knows her best jokes and how to deliver them. It was a great set with lots of edgy sex jokes, that got a huge laugh from the crowd, time after time. If you enjoy laughing the sometimes-funny side of life as a wife, mother, and pet owner, come see Kate. She’s sure to make you laugh hysterically.
Burlesque with Miss Meow
Miss Meow is a crowd pleaser and she was offered many bouquets in celebration of her birthday. A new player in the Montreal burlesque scene, she started getting noticed by Stage Kittening with Acme Burlesque and the Sublimes Rondeurs (Montreal’s only plus size burlesque troupe!) and by hostessing at the Montreal Burlesque Festival and the Grand Burlesque Show. She began performing after following a class with Lady Josephine and BonBon Bombay. Miss Meow caught the attention of the crowd with her slow, elegant show, and was runner up for Voix-de-Ville. When she’s not out astonishing the world of burlesque as Miss Meow, the mild mannered Yael Perez is a leader in the world of plus size women, and can be found organizing events HERE.
Music with Claire Porter
Strong vocals from Claire Porter, who delivered moving music from the heart without the help of her Stouts, and she did it very very well on her own if you ask me. Look out for this one…
Acrobatic Act with Miss Firefly
Miss Firefly played with balls all night. She made them spin. She made them glow.
Comedy and Advice with The Love Doctor
Fill out a card asking for a relationship advice and the quick witted Love Doctor (Paul Ash) uses his improv skills to offer a useful and hilarious answer. It’s like Dear Aby with an Irish twist.
Burlesque with Holly Von Sinn
Very energetic clown burlesque delivered with lots of emotion and facial expressions. Holly, running around the stage, trying hard to get a wine bottle open, shakes it, until it explodes with sparkles of joy all over the place. Could it be symbolism for something else? Oh, I don’t know… Anyhow it was very impressive and she won the first place in the talent show and the $100 prize.
If it’s cold outside and you’d like to laugh, stay warm and entertained… if you’re the type of dude or lady who enjoys dressing up, drinking cocktails and watching burlesque, The Wiggle Room is the place for you. Come along for the ride as we discover new talent every Wednesday night.
Voix de Ville takes place weekly on Wednesday at The Wiggle Room (3874 St. Laurent) at 8 p.m. $10, for more info click HERE
