Wau Wau Sisters' Last Supper bribe The List
With a magnet, thong, tea towel, fridge magnet and hip flask
This article is from 2010.
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:
