About Voodoo

Voodoo Vaudeville has existed as a company since 1999. The first show was at Komedia in Dec 1999, it was an anarchic mix of bravado, brouhaha and art comedy and went on to create a cult following with its kooky comperes Lennie and Morris and their mixture of improvised comedy, puppets, dances and audience participation. Time passed and the emphasis changed; the comperes disappeared, other characters and sensibilities emerged and Voodoo gradually emerged in its present incarnation: a themed theatre cabaret night with its roots in circus, rebel rock music, vaudeville and original form burlesque.From its inception it has been the brainchild of Chris Cresswell (with inspired interventions from the inimitable Ruth Glaser). Chris has taken it from its anarchic art comedy beginnings to a place where it can fulfill many roles.Voodoo Vaudeville has performed at a diverse number of events from festival circuit favourites Bestival, Glastonbury and Lost Vagueness to Burlesque shows and the Torture Garden, from the Assembly Rooms to middle scale venues such as Trinity Theatre Tonbridge, Colchester Arts Centre, Udderbelly, Famous Spiegeltent. Royal Exchange Manchester, whilst retaining its residency at Komedia in Brighton.Voodoo Vaudeville takes many forms, from a 4 person tight touring show to a collection of renegades let loose on a festival stage.Voodoo Vaudeville can provide all your needs for a private party, festival or corporate event.
