Cabaret sensation Myra Dubois’ London To Do List
Neo-Cabaret sensation and Time Out favourite Myra Dubois doles out her To Do List for London. She is apparently Rotherham’s finest entertainment export since Paul Shane! Including perfect breakfast in Clapham, Benny’s Bar and of course her own FUN-raiser at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern tomorrow (Wednesday 6th June 2012)
Tell us about your favourite secret/offbeat places in London (food, going out, entertainment, relaxation)?
I’m always in Mario’s on Clapham High Street, a real traditional greasy spoon. Full breakfast and a cuppa for under five quid, marv! I like London’s green spaces, but only during the winter. There’s too many children during the summer and whilst I have no problem with children themselves, I can’t bear to be around the cult of ‘Parenthood’.
What offbeat events are on your To Do List in the next month or so?
Gosh, this question has stumped me. Have I even been invited anywhere? Am I that unpopular?! The Painted Grin is a wonderful little stand up night at Benny’s Bar on Bethnal Green Road ran by Jayde Adams which is free entry! I’ll be sticking my head in at that soon, as should you.
What are your favourite things to do for free or little money in London?
Stay at home; although that doesn’t make for an entertaining read does it? My advice for a cheap day out is to always follow large groups of tourists, you’d be surprised at what you get away with. I once managed to gain free entry into Blackpool Tower using this method.
What’s your ultimate London confession?
I’ve performed fellatio in the door way of The Retro Bar.
What event or product of your own would you like to pimp on To Do List?
I’m throwing a fundraiser (like a greasy politician) at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern this Wednesday, June 6th. I’d love for you all to come. The line up is spectacular (Dreambears, Dickie Beau, Scott Capurro, Fancy Chance, Jayde Adams, David Mills AND more) and it’ll only cost you a fiver!
