‘A good, true story, brilliantly told.’ ★★★★ Times

In 2001, Brett’s father had a spectacular mid-life crisis and instead of buying a sports car he bought a Strip Club. In Marbella!

What followed was surprising, frightening and oddly emotional and Brett was on the front line for the whole thing.

He has waited 10 years to tell this story, mainly because it has taken this long to process it all and for the laws to change enough so that he could tell it.

LAUGH at the antics of the mafia! CRY at the loss of a young man’s innocence! MARVEL at the strippers and their magic ways! GASP at the backstage secrets. And CLAP POLITELY at the end when you realise you have just sat through someone else’s therapy.

‘Fast paced, dark and brutal, and performed with skill and ease…. self-deprecating, oddly philosophical and fascinating… Goldstein is an excellent comedian and a talented storyteller… this is top class.’

‘Sharply written, impeccably delivered, always charming… warm, wise stuff, the show superficially small but the themes and laughs big.’
Daily Telegraph

‘Brett Goldstein has such a great story to tell, it almost seems like cheating… Expertly told… with charisma and skill.’

‘He manages to grip you with this story of disaster and disappointment and fills it with so many appallingly hilarious anecdotes of life on the slippery pole of the strip club that, for once, I did not get to check my watch because an hour with Goldstein flies past and you do leave wanting more. Which is an extraordinary thing on the Edinburgh Fringe.’
