‘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’.

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.

XNTHONY SPEAKS TO MASC.LIFE

November 21 x x x

Fun, honest and insightful interview between XNTHONY & Stephen Moloney of MASC.LIFE.

‘Speaking with Xnthony is demanding. He is frequently interrupted by his own interjections – a throwaway remark, an aside, a footnote, a mutter, an exclamation, an indeterminable sound – many of which seem like ideas, or the bases for ideas, which find brief expression before being stored away for the future. Or maybe they are immediately forgotten and replaced. Sitting face to face with him is to be confronted by somebody frothing and foaming with ideas, schemes, and plans ["as long as I have a filter, everything is good"]. For this, speaking with Xnthony is energising. Undoubtedly, he is provocative – for the sake of it or not, I do not know – and seems to enjoy seeking out reactions. However, like the art he makes, and the art he is, Xnthony is compelling – you can’t look away and, even if you could, you probably wouldn’t want to.’
