View dates & book

Following sold-out London seasons in 2013-2016, the world’s hottest all-male boylesque circus stars return in a brand-new show for 2017!

Having glitter-bombed the globe as we know it with their iconic and hilarious brand of circus, drag, burlesque and comedy, the Briefs boys are now ready to explore the third dimension.

With their trademark skill and humour they test the limits of masculinity, taste and decency. Expect interstellar aerials, incredible artistry, and warped speed strippers from outer space.

Prepare yourselves for a very close encounter with the Briefs boys.
