We are lucky in our work to film some extraordinary things and meet some fascinating people, but nothing prepared us for the Boom and Bang Circus, this electrifying group of performers, bring old-fashioned cabaret with a very modern twist. The creative collaboration between Kathryn McLaughlin (Kitty Bang Bang) and Bioux Lee Hayes, has got people talking about it as the ‘must see’ show in London.
Boom & Bang Circus is their newest venture in conjunction with the famous Hippodrome Casino in the heart of London’s West End. Boom and Bang present to you a late night cavalcade of exotic acts in the venue’s spectacular Matcham Room theatre. They have even incorporated and paid homage to Hippodromes entertainment past by reinvigorating acts like little Tich and his big boots performed by Dott Cotton an accomplished, clown and mime artist, who had the Little Tich big boots made for her act.
The other acts are:

Laurie started her compering at Madam Jojo’s working with the Folie Mixtures, but truly came into her own covering for Jonny Woo at Boom Boom Club at the OVT.
