Gin drinking cabaret darling, musical comedy misfit, drag clown and acid tongued ringmaster.
Living somewhere between the stages of music, theatre and comedy, Joe Black takes an audience firmly by the hand and guides them into a place where the strange and unusual reign supreme.
No stranger to the absurd, Joe Black creates a world where the shocking is the sublime and the ridiculous is the beautiful.
One of the leading figures in the dark Cabaret genre, Joe Black has toured extensively across the UK, Europe, Australia and America.
He has raised the roof at the British Library in London, astounded the Rock elite at the 'Kerrang!' Awards and headlined music and arts events worldwide.
He has also toured and performed alongside the likes of Eddie Izzard, The Tiger Lillies, David J, Voltaire, Toyah Wilcox and Duke Special (by whom he was invited to headline an evening in Belfast at a week long curated event by Duke Special himself).
Joe Black is also a regular performer for the infamous 'Torture Garden' nightclub and hosts and curates a sell-out residency in the opulent and lavish Edwardian 'Kings Theatre' in Hampshire.
Joe Black is a constantly evolving Cabaret chameleon, blurring the lines of decency within entertainment and continues to drive music and performance into strange new realms.
We're very concerned.
"The King of Cabaret Noir"
- The Metro
"His show is like nothing I have ever encountered before – it is absurd, terrifying, and brilliantly original and I desperately want to go again, and again.
If this is the future of modern British Cabaret then I am 100% behind it. Go, order yourself a large gin, take a seat, and be taken on a musical journey you hadn’t even dreamed was possible"

Icon of intellectual erotica and master of charismatic immersive acting with a light touch of sophisticated erotic provocation. Agneta is a travelling show-lady, headliner of numerous cabaret shows around Europe and special guest of iconic fetish parties. Each act by her is a one-woman story. She mesmerises and impresses the most exquisite audience with her energy, the way she moves, and mind-blowing choreography of her acts. Her creations are about versatility of seduction with lots of inner shades.

Claudia Contortionist, proclaimed 'Britain's Bendiest Woman' (This Morning ITV, Daily Mail Online, The Sun Online), is one of the most highly skilled contortionists performing in the UK today, having trained at The National Centre for Circus Arts where she was awarded a first class honours degree. Her performances include amazing handstands combined with unbelievable moves such as the triple fold, and scorpion no hands.
Claudia was the contortion body double for The Mummy (Sofia Boutella), and for Nagini (Claudia Kim) in The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Her TV work includes Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, This Morning, TFI Friday, Officially Amazing, Extraordinary Bodies, Extraordinary Humans, and Culture Shock.
She has appeared in many commercials and advertising campaigns. Her contortion work has also led her to work with many fashion designers, including Vivienne Westwood.
She has performed at many top venues and at numerous nightclubs, hotels and private parties both in the UK and abroad.
Guiness World Record for: “fastest time to put six eggs in egg cups, using the feet, whilst in a contortion chest stand”!
