September 17 x x x x

‘Although he’s become a darling of the London scene with his cabaret shows at alternative East End queer club, The Glory, Roscommon native Anthony Keigher, aka Xnthony, has always had his eye on a bigger prize, as his new show at the Dublin Fringe attests. As Xnthony gears up to rebrand himself as a straight for pop stardom, Keigher talks to Brian Finnegan about fame, his own Marvel Universe, fake authenticity, and the strange correlation between queerness and rural life’.

XNTHONY is the star cover girl for GCN’s Septembers issue. Read the interview here. Photography by LUXXXER.

POW HIQ

Europe’s favourite-ish pop star XNTHONY is back. This time it’s personal. This time he’s getting hitched!

Having failed to represent anyone in the Eurovision, XNTHONY is pivoting.

Out goes the glitter and glam. In comes wife-to-be Tiffany.

Standing together with sweaty palms and open hearts, this is the white wedding of the millennium and the couple want you to join them on their special day.

The Power of Wow is created by XNTHONY and developed with Tiffany Murphy.

Support for the project comes from Limewharf Creative Hub and Roscommon Co Co. Image by DASHIELL SILVA. Photography by LUXXXER.

The reviews are in!

‘This production is an engaging and challenging progression of the characters of Xnthony and Tiffany (who previously appeared in Douze) that involves the audience in both light-hearted and provocative, searching ways. The Power of Wow is a brave (and at times bizarre) work of art that is not afraid to push boundaries and does so with confidence, conviction, and bananas.’ Read more here.

‘During such stunts, the electric Tiffany Murphy will up the ante, even grinding melisma into his thoughtfully prepared rap. It’s clearer than before that Xnthony is a scathing ridiculer, showing the ugly side of celebrity culture. Through grotesque routines, Tiffany is pushed to the brink before finally railing against what she was promised. This cabaret act has some teeth.’ Read more here.

June 11 x x x

Because…it’s BINGOBABES!

BINGO returns to The Glory.

BINGOBABES is hosted by international diva XNTHONY (ME) with fabulously feisty Crystal Beth and everyone’s fave bonkers babe, Barbs! This trio are going to blow you away. Or blow you. Whichever comes first.

Back is the the fast, furious and fantastically ferocious evening of cabaret, comedy and bingo.

There will be prizes; domestos, banana peels…lambrini! There will be audience choreography. Stripping. 69ing with props exploding out of all the wrong orifices. Whether you like it or not.

Same madness. Same balls. It’s the coalition of chaos everyone is talking about, made up the leading rising stars of East London’s queer scene.

Come see it on Sept 10th and again 2 weeks later on Oct 1st!
