Oh, it all starts out pretty enough with Kiki singing something festive, clinking the ice in her high-ball glass and generally getting into one of her gorgeous moods.
Fast forward half an hour or so and just a little too much Jackie D has been inbibed, the singing voice is getting scratchier and the baby Jesus lying in a manger is doubling up as a bar stool.
Anything can happen at a Kiki and Herb Christmas Show (starring Justin Bond, the MC in the very saucy Shortbus) and most times it actually does. Do not miss your one-night stand with the first lady of out-of-it performing (maybe second lady, after Amy Wino), on 19th December at Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Which is quite big.
Phone the following number to exchange cash for seats and why not quibble about the booking charge, ’cause how else are you supposed to get tickets? Does Sainsbury’s ask for an extra administration charge for ringing up your weekly shop? No, it does not.
Oh, that number. 020 8354 3300.
