Finger in the Pie Cabaret Showcase

Apply to perform at Finger in the Pie Cabaret here. Finger in the Pie Cabaret Showcase has been running in Madame JoJo’s since February 2006. The showcase is London’s largest platform for new Cabaret, Vaudeville and Variety Performers.

It is a showcase for both new and established acts working in cabaret, vaudeville, comedy, magic and puppetry. The showcase is completely free for performers. We encourage you to invite as many industry folks down as possible to see you perform – and we’ll do as much as we can to help you advertise your performance.

Finger in the Pie Cabaret Showcase has been the first step for a huge number of performers entering the professional world of Cabaret and Burlesque. Performers who made their UK cabaret debut with us include – Bourgeois and Maurice (winners in the 2012 London Cabaret Awards), Doctor Brown (winner of the Fosters Comedy Award 2012) and Myra Dubois (winner of best Drag Act London Cabaret Awards 2013).

Our work supporting artists was recognised at the 2013 London Cabaret Awards where we picked up the ‘Unsung Heros’ award, which is voted on by the cabaret community, for our stage management team.
