Press Release: X-rated circus show is taking the UK by storm

A brand new over 18?s circus show is proving that sex sells, even in the Big Top. After selling out of its first four performances in 2018, Cirque du Vulgar is taking the UK by storm and has announced they will be giving several one-off performances across the North West this Spring.

Inspired by a love of all things vulgar, the adults-only circus features a fire-breathing pyromaniac, alluring hula hoops, sexy strong men, a drunken whore, nail-biting acrobatics, and a fearsome Dominatrix flying high in the Big Top.

?We?ve promised flesh, we?ve promised filth, we?ve promised stunts. This is one circus show that you can?t take the kids to!? says a sharp-suited performer as he sets up his props ready for the big night. This is ?Frank? one half of outrageous comedy duo Frank and Beans, who will be providing the belly laughs and vulgar jokes throughout the 18+ show.

Fellow performer Beans plays a pyromaniac with a penchant for stuffed rabbits. Dishevelled and foul-mouthed, he shocks the crowd with fire-eating stunts that are close enough to singe your eyebrows.

?You?ve never seen anything like Cirque du Vulgar before,? says Rosie Clarke, Vulgar spokesperson. ?We wanted to tear up the rule book and create a show which was refreshing, enticing, and aimed at a whole new audience.?

Among the weird and wonderful items which have found their way into the circus ring are a full-size bath, perfect for a scantily-clad performer to emerge out of dripping wet, suspended by elastic wrist cords. Tipped as ?a group favourite,? her powerful aerial straps act is one to watch.

Three gorgeous ?Vulgarettes? perform a teasing topless feather dance. Nudity and naughtiness are the order of the day here at Cirque du Vulgar, and there?s no excuses for the male members of the cast, who are also seen bearing all in the name of risqué live entertainment.

Two chiselled acrobats star in the big jaw-dropping finale act, a Wheel of Death which rotates high in the air whilst they jump and skip across the abyss. With cast members hitting metal chains to the pulsing music and leaping out to dance in the aisles, it?s guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping.

Upside down hunks in trunks, mind-bending pole dancing, sequinned nipple tassels, the ?Only Gay in the Circus?, a ukulele, champagne on ice, and plenty of those trousers which rip off at the Velcro seams? the naughty and hilarious cast of Cirque du Vulgar have thought of it all. And they cannot WAIT to unveil it.

This unique adults-only circus performs for one night only in the circus Big Top at Wythenshawe on 23rd February, Nelson on 2nd March, Oswestry on 23rd March, Wrexham on 30th March, and Warrington on 20th and 27th April.
