About Us

Storyhouse proudly presents the first ever Storyhouse Cabaret – an evening of sparkling variety and cabaret, put together exclusively for Storyhouse by the great Mat Ricardo!

Mat Ricardo – The Gentleman Juggler 

One of the worlds most unique, critically-acclaimed, and reliably entertaining variety performers. Mat Ricardo on stage is an opportunity to see genuine danger performed by a natural comedian at the top of his game. He beguiles his audience with both old favourites and signature routines, including some tricks that haven’t been performed for decades, and some that have never been performed before at all. 

With Mat, you are guaranteed big laughs, serious skills, slapstick, and breathtaking spectacle. 

He is a TedX Speaker, Magic Circle doyen, Royal Command Performer, and the winner of the Herald Angel Award for theatre excellence, British Cabaret Award for Best Speciality Act, Stagetalk Magazine’s Show of the Year, and the Arts Award Pick of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. 

Ada Campe – Variety, Comedy Magician 

Campe’s performances are true variety at it’s best, rife with the absurd and the outlandish, mystery and intrigue and unabashed, pure comedy. The devilishly eccentric Campe presents her tricks with the aesthetic of a divinely dotty variety artiste. Resplendent in greasepaint and glorious feathered headdress, she is flamboyant and quite possibly bonkers, but she knows how to spin a showbusiness anecdote. Her shows feature more shaggy dogs than psychic ducks, but her theatrical delivery draws the audience in, with extended stories that cast a spell long before she asks anyone to pick a card. 

Winner – New Act of the Year – NATYS. Winner - Leicester Square Theatre Old Comedian of the Year. Nominee – Best Variety Act – Chortle Awards 2019 

Ada Campe made me laugh more than anyone on the circuit for years. Genius” Sandi Toksvig  

“”Immerses you in another world from the first moment” Edinburgh Festivals Magazine  

 ”Resembles an unhinged super-villain” Diva Magazine  

 ”Extravagantly mischievous… devilishly eccentric… a real original and with irrepressible funny bones.. brilliantly crowd-pleasing act” Chortle  

Oliver Tabor – Contemporary Conjuror 

Delivering a varied, unique and elegant twist on stage magic, Oliver a multi-award winning magician and member of the Magic Circle most recently winning at the 2017 European Championships of Magic. He is a past International British Magic Champion & World Championships of Magic finalist. Over the past year he’s traveled the globe performing in Beijing, Madrid & Amsterdam, toured UK theatres in ‘Britain’s Got Magic’ plus his own London show, West End Magic, celebrated its 5th year at the Leicester Square Theatre.  

Brilliantly different” The Stage  

A superb act” BBC 

Ulrike Storch – Foot Juggler Extraordinaire 

Ulrike is vivacious, versatile and has the style and dedication of a true artist.

Ulrike has juggled for award-winning contemporary circus company ́s Cirque Éloize, but more than anything adores her prestigious and beloved resident shows, at London ́s best cabaret show, Café de Paris.  

Our next guest was too good not to be on TV, a damn handsome foot juggler” Stanley Tucci, Channel 4  

An uncanny Marlene Dietrich — well, that’s different” Londonist
