  • Amazingly Entertaining

    17 October 2017

    We saw Briefs: Close Encounters in London back in August. It was a fabulous show - loved it! Took my72 year old Aunt and husband and we all agreed that it was incredibly entertaining. All the performers are so incredibly talented (and in amazing shape - of course)! I describe it as risqué circus, magic show, comedy and dance performance. Would definitely see their next show if Ihad a chance.

  • The joy of Briefs !

    5 October 2017

    A wonderful way to pass an hour or so - funny, beautiful men with irony oozing from their beautiful butt cheeks. I loved you all and found the underlying philosophy of the show simplistically poignant - you should run a government for the world. Hope you come back next year x
