Pregnant Virgins, Rock Stars, Acrobats and Mirror Tents..

Have you seen all the wonderful sessions and Sketchy action that’s been happening in 2013?

If you’ve been with us you’ll know how jam packed we’ve been with a variety of exceptional personalities and performers across 2 very special locations.

2 sessions down at The Famous Spiegeltent with Polish based acrobat duo The Caesar Twins, and just last week a moving, warm fuzzy session with half of the incredible quartet of acrobats that is CASUS.

We launched our 2013 season at our home THE TOFF IN TOWN with YOU AM I frontman, Tim Rogers.  For those that missed it… you’re loss.  A session that will never be matched – intimate, raw, visceral, private.
If you were then it’s a memory to keep and hopefully your renderings of Tim captured the man whilst he waxed poetic on the life of a rock star.

Stay tuned for the next performer announcement for our session Sunday March 31t at The Toff in Town

The Famous Spiegeltent returns to Melbourne, with Dr Sketchy’s in it!

Dr. Sketchy’s Melbourne launches its 2012 season in the most beautiful of cabaret venues.
Join us for a very special Dr. Sketchy session in The Famous Spiegeltent.

Indulge in some cheeky rendering of  the Spiegeltent’s visiting performers where you’ll also be treated to a performance.  DJ Knave Knixx will be spinning an infectious blend of nostalgic tunes with a boogie woogie flavour, that will have you toe-tappin’ while you sketch.

A more perfect venue could not exist for Dr Sketchy’s.  We are thrilled to be a part of such a historic venue where some of the world’s greatest artists, bohemians, freaks, talents and legends have sung, danced, drank and laughed….

And now, a brief history….

The Famous Spiegeltent was built in 1920. Since Marlene Dietrich sang Falling In Love Again in the 1930s, her magic mirrors have reflected thousands of images of artists, audiences and exotic gatherings. She is a star in her own right, hosting parties, concerts, clubs and a myriad of stunning performances, launching the careers of countless artists travelling the world.

So ignite your creative spirit by coming out to this special session!
