Elberace : Gay Elvis - Other Comedy Act - Blackheath, London Event Location: Union Theatre, London, UK Event Type: Cabaret, Party, Musical Theatre 25th June 2021
Elberace (Gay Elvis) hit the stratosphere of fabulousness with a show that had us all on our feet, screaming and throwing knickers! He’s got the voice and the moves to make the King look down from heaven and weep with joy. The energy level at the Union Theatre was incredible and we adored the witty banter between songs. A consummate performer with unique charm and cheekiness who’ll go down a storm with anyone loves a great night out. We had absolute blast!!!????

You carried the audience into another realm and held them there in the palm of your hand for over an hour. Ive worked with some very Big Audience's and Performers over the years and i felt your work was right up there with the very best, you had measure of the audience and they trusted you and they travelled with you, it was a wonderful to watch and hear. A lot of emerging and established performers i come across don't get entertainment, they often don't understand who they are and what they have to say, you are very much the reverse of this, you get your act completely , you can define it and explain it and you share it and people are happy to receive it. Last night was a room of huge Fun, the audience had a great time , the crew had a great time, and You had a great time. It was my pleasure to work the sound at your show and I'd be very happy to come and do it again and Im also Proud to tell people that i did sound at your show. (10 / 10)

You should absolutely market your lockdown show for birthdays and occasions because it was truly fantastic beginning to end and the most fun we've had in weeks! Wish you could have seen the look on my dad's face when the backing track started! I can't thank you enough for the level of work and energy you put into it, it really showed and the result was a total production!! It truly felt like a live show just for us, and exceeded all my expectations, you should be proud as you are a very talented performer. Worth every penny and you've definitely gained some new fans for live shows and your online presence :) XXX Kirsten
