CABARIOTERS at the LONDON CABARATI HQ take issue with the use of ‘CABARET’ as a derogatory term on THE X FACTOR…
"Using ‘cabaret’ as a dirty word is lazy, and it’s missing a trick. Not only is the underground scene thriving, with everything from alt drag to new variety, but the form is increasingly influencing the mainstream, as current shows like ‘Forever Crazy’ on the South Bank, the West End revival of the musical Cabaret’ or the Tiger Lillies’ recent version of ‘Hamlet’ at the Royal Festival Hall demonstrate. ‘Relevant’ enough for you?"

special thanks to all of the diverse and flourishing cabaret performers currently wowing the UK with the sort of inventive creativity that is often absent from the X Factor
