‘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 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.’
