We are so excited about Luscious Cabaret returning with a bang in two weeks time. Of course, Luscious wouldn’t be Luscious without our fabulous host of proceedings, Michael Twaits. We had a read of the interview he did with us last year and thought you might enjoy reading it again.
What does a typical show day look like for you?
Usually it revolves around food- I don’t like eating just before I go on or eating when made up so have to plan meals! I always like to get to new venues early to check them out before showtime.
What is the best and worst thing about being in the spotlight?
It’s a real privilege to be allowed to wear sequins and act like a buffoon and have people consider it a good night out!
Do you have any special pre-show rituals?
A little drop of wine. A mirror with some lights and I’m all good to go. I can manage without a mirror if there’s enough wine.
Tell us about the main similarities and differences between “everyday” you and your on-stage persona.
I’m exactly the same. If it wasn’t for the sequins and the microphone I don’t think there’s any difference! I’m always a talkative idiot!
