This Mardi Gras, Kings, Queens, and everyone in between join forces for a fabulous night of delectable music, comedy and commentary at Bondi Pavilion. Hosted by the glittering rabble rouser of Australia’s cabaret scene, Catherine Alcorn, Bangers & Mash is a good-old home-cooked variety of banging tunes and mad mash-ups. Helpmann award-winning iOTA and drag royalty Verushka Darling complete the line up for a night of raucous fun.
