Wau Wau Sisters' Last Supper bribe The List

With a magnet, thong, tea towel, fridge magnet and hip flask

We received this bribe bounty at the very last minute, so unfortunately didn’t have time to track down a spokesperson from the show, but we think the bribe speaks for itself. The Wau Wau Sisters sent us a bundle including: a pair of pants, a thong, a fridge magnet, a tea towel and a hip flask, all bearing the sacrilegious promotional image for their show, The Wau Wau Sisters’ Last Supper.

The sisters hail from New York City, and put on a show that aims to ‘straddle the hilarious gap between performance art and burlesque’, according to their website. They’re pretty proficient at it too, having claimed awards and nominations from the Adelaide, Brighton and London Fringes in years past.

This has set a high benchmark for anyone else hoping to curry favour with a sly backhander – if you feel you can top their efforts, send your promo goodies to:

Big Fat Festival Bribe,
c/o Niki Boyle,
The List,
14 High Street,
EH1 1TE.

Wau Wau Sisters’ Last Supper, Assembly @ George Street, 623 3030, until 30 Aug (not 16 or 23), 10.40pm, £12.50-£13.50 (£11.50-£12.50).

The Wau Wau Sisters' Last Supper

  • 3 stars

'La Clique' stars T&A return with their new show of unearthly delights and debauchery. Straddling the hilarious gap between religious and related, performance-art and party, busking and burlesque, profanity and divinity, this 2-gal circus contorts and careens to a bacchanalian finale. A 'last supper', full of saviours…

Not one for the faint hearted or religious. As an ex convent schoolgirl I am fortunately neither!!!!

Expect the unexpected, I've seen em before and I still didn't expect such a great show. They've only got better in the intervening years and I'd recommend the show to anyone with an appreciation of the bawdy and surreal. Definitely not suitable for the kiddies, but possibly your granny, IF she's very open minded. I laughed so much I thought I might get lockjaw and nearly had an asthma attack. Thank you ladies xxxx
