Boogaloo Stu tells us about his glam London & new show Crimplene Millionaire at Ovalhouse
We caught up with the glambassador, Boogaloo Stu, and chatted about his new show at Ovalhouse, ‘Crimplene Millionaire’.
The show charts the pop-culture of the 1970s in a live interactive theatre gameshow.
Tell us about your favourite secret/offbeat places in London (food, going out, entertainment, relaxation)?
I really enjoy eating. Eating out. Yeah, hi. So wherever there’s food, I’m generally there, piling it in. It’s not really a secret hideaway, but when I’m in the mood for ritzy business I love Bob Bob Ricard, pressing their champagne button as often as I can!
What offbeat events are on your To Do List in the next month or so?
The “Push The Button” club night at the RVT on 22nd
February. It’s not like any other pop club I’ve been to. Next month’s theme celebrates the 35th Birthday of Atomic Kitten’s Jenny Frost. And why not?
What are your favourite things to do for free or little money in London?
Masturbation. What a wonderful thing, and it doesn’t cost a penny, does it? Though generally speaking not in public. Jacking off in public is a definite no-no.
When I’m not doing that, you might find me wandering around the quaint cobbled back streets of Hampstead, bitterly complaining to anyone who will listen that it’s not how it used to be in the days of “Les Bicyclettes De Belsize”.
What’s your ultimate London confession?
I must confess that I prefer Brighton. Sorry, but I do.
What event or product of your own would you like to pimp on To Do List?
My show Crimplene Millionaire, at Ovalhouse, of course! It runs from Tuesday 5th February – Saturday 9th February, as part of the Counterculture 50 season. It’s all about the 1970’s; a giant board game-cum-theatrical spectacular.
In the guise of my new character Derek Daniels (pictured above), I hope to destroy the myth that the 70’s are the “decade that style forgot” and feed the audience some tasty nuggets about just how forward-thinking and exciting the that era was.
I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like free, cheap & offbeat London, especially: cabaret, art, theatre, pop-ups, eating out, quirky films, museums, day trips, social enterprise & much more.
