Peter & Bambi HeavenCabaret and Variety
Strap in and prepare yourself because magic is going to happen people. Asher Treleaven (La Soirée) and Gypsy Wood (Miss Cage Dance Universe Australia) are Peter & Bambi Heaven, Australia’s most deluded dancing love magicians and they’re about to explode into all over your town.
They’ve put together the greatest magical variety stunt show possible, auditioning acts up and down the Sunshine Coast, but at the last minute they’ve fired the cast and decided to go it alone.
Imagine if David Copperfield and Claudia Schiffer were from the Gold Coast, now roll them in sequins, set them on fire and you’re almost there.

One of Australia’s most critically acclaimed comedians Asher Treleaven has been described as “a post modern Barry Humphries”, and has won a slew of awards including, The Age Comedian of the Year, The Melbourne International Comedy Critics Choice and the 2014 Olivier Award for his role in the international smash, La Soirée. He has also been twice nominated for the best show Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and once for the Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe.
