The purveyors of progressive working class entertainment are back for a truly unforgettable night.

Queer heritage, performance art and honky-tonk, every Saturday for twenty one flippin’ years with Amy Lamé hosting this arty party playgroup, resident DJs Readers Wifes handling the dance floor, and door whore artistes Father and Jay Cloth.

Tonight's special guests include:

Dave the Bear
Known in the industry as the body of burlesque, Dave The "Legend" is so sexy after watching him perform it is guaranteed that you will leave pregnant, and that's not just the ladies... The Bear has been performing all over the world since 2009 and last year alone was nominated for a London Cabaret Award for Best Alternative Act and a British Comedy Award for his work on TV's 8 Out of 10 Cats. Oh, and winner of Peoples Choice Award at The Vienna Boylesque Festival 2015. Boom!

Baby Lame
Since prolapsing onto London's alternative scene in 2012, the deliciously rancid starlet has continued to thrill and terrorise audiences across the country with her twisted brand of punk-horror-drag. Combining frantic balls-out performance with dark comedy and the bad taste midnight movie sensibility of John Waters - Lame has risen to become one of London's most exciting alt-cabaret stars.

About your host:
Ame Lamé

Amy Lamé is a chubby funster.  She never gets old and she tans easily, even in the winter. When she is not Mrs Duckie she is the Night Czar of London.

DJs Readers Wifes
Readers Wifes have been Duckie's jockeys-in-residence since we began 21 years ago.  Please note they are not real women.

Father Cloth
With Duckie since day one, Father Cloth is the debonair doorwhore, who has donned the suits and manned the doors for the past 21 years with his partner in crime Jay Cloth.

Jay Cloth
Part of the original gang of 6, this elusive masked-mensch has been working his looks on the door at Duckie weekly since 1995. In his non Duckie life, he likes to stick things to paper in galleries and call it art.
