The Queer Comedy Cabaret
“A newly discovered comedy icon” The Wee Review “Tropicana is pure heaven” Culture Fix
Following their sold out, extended, award-winning Edinburgh Fringe run, Tropicanaisthe future of queer comedy cabaret! Soon to storm the UK circuit, Tropicana will bethe most engaging LGBTQIA+ act of the year.
The show is an exploration and unashamed assault on the gender binaries, featuringamiably anarchic stand up punctuated by electrifying 80s’ synthwave ranging fromSpandau Ballet to ABC.
Drawing on their own tumultuous experience of being queer in a small industrial town, the audience is taken on a journey to the absurd and surreal mind of AidanSadler. Nothing is safe from ridicule such as body image, straight folk andthedreaded ASOS Gays!
Aidan Sadler is a queer cabaret artist from Gravesham, Kent. Coming up throughthelocal cabaret circuit, they went on to work in the cruise & leisure industry beforewriting their own show during lockdown. Aidan prides themself as being a home- grown artist with their own unique angle.
Following the glowing, 5* success of Tropicana, Aidan is looking to branch out intooriginal music and is currently working on their next project, Rat Catcher. This will bea one-person tour-de-force delving into their past as a straight-acting pest controller weekdays and Queen come Friday night. Since their début at Edinburgh Fringe, Aidan has also diversified into compèring, crowd work and unconventional performance art.
