Something I absolutely adore about living in London is that no matter what your likes and interests are, you will be able to indulge them. Even if that passion happens to be a little more on the obscure/niche side... On Thursday I rushed home from work to beat my face, throw on an old lady grey wig and jump in a taxi to Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club for an evening of Lynchian cabaret and burlesque hosted by The Double R Club – it was the evening of The 6th Annual Miss Twin Peaks Contest and it was an absolute riot!
The Miss Twin Peaks Contest is an anti-pageant in which the contestants compete for the title of Miss Twin Peaks (and the glittering crown that comes with it!). Each of the unique performances were inspired by the strange and beautiful world of David Lynch and the evening was hosted by award winning cabaret host, Mr ‘So Fuckin Suave’ himself, Benjamin Louche. Louche was thoroughly compelling, entertaining and humorous and is the perfect compère for the contest.
