Bad Luck Cabaret

the best in alternative cabaret

Bad Luck Cabaret was born in The Famous Spiegeltent at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 as the late night little sister of ​headline show La Clique.  Since then, Bad Luck has smashed mirrors over the world including De Parel Spiegeltent (Perth Fringe), Spiegel Zelt (Adelaide Fringe), Bosco Theater (Brighton Fringe) and Underbelly's Paradiso (London Wonderground). 

​Inspired by the traditional greats, Bad Luck is the weirdo of the family, with focus on original live music and alternative culture hosted by the Bad Luck Boss Laurie Black. 

Bad Luck can also double as a live gig, with 30 minutes of cabaret acts followed by the best on the alternative, metal and industrial music scenes. ​ 

Previous acts include: My Bad Sister, MisSa Blue, Dandy Darkly, Tomás Ford, Andrew O'Neill, Kitten N' Lou, Trygve Wakenshaw, Zach & Viggo, Red Bastard, Alfie Ordinary, Jasz Vegas, The Midnight Beast and Head First Acrobats.

In 2021, Laurie brought Bad Luck Cabaret to the virtual stage of Zoom.
