This Is Cabaret
"Kiki Lovechild shows there was no need to stop in and watch BGT with fantastically inventive cabaret turns"
"Kiki Lovechild ... I am amazed ... really, you had to be there!"
"Kiki Lovechild is an amazing clown. That might be a strange compliment, but I dare you to watch his hour long exploration of the afterlife and not feel better about being alive. In fact, if the afterlife is as much fun as Kiki‘s show, I am giving up any fear of death here and now. It’s never complicated but Kiki‘s enthusiasm and stage craft makes the audience forget itself in laughter. What sets his show apart is the quality of his audience interactions. Twice during the show I thought that the audience member was a plant, that‘s how good they were."

"Kiki is quite simply one of the most creative and exciting cabaret artists out there."
Vivacity Bliss, promoter of Cabaret Roulette
"Kiki Lovechild proves how unnecessary words can be ... His show is beautifully paced and ... sweeps his audience into a world of fun and fantasy unlimited by earthly notions. Anything can happen on his stage and does ... shared by a captivated audience. Nothing verbal can describe the magic of this production, and why should it? The show is an unforgettable hour that cannot fail to make you laugh and love being alive."
***** The Latest
"... he displayed a virtuoso masterclass in physical comedy, one element of which sees him chasing a small paper butterfly around the Spiegeltent. There are a lot of clown or physical theatre acts in cabaret these days that are not completely thought through ... [but Kiki's] antics rise far above the usual fare."

" ... very much impressed. He was definitely a highlight of the evening, which is impressive considering he was surrounded by such great talent. Kiki regularly brought the house to its knees with his puppet Jessica Blue, who – we kid you not – stripped him of his clothes at one point."
"Sheets is Kiki Lovechild at his charming, mesmerizing best. ... He fills us all with wonder, laughter and love. His performance is always touching, always funny and somehow more beautiful than a sunrise, a sunset or an enchanted forest. His is a unique work of art."
"Lovechild is an exceptionally talented performer and his creativity is intriguingly channelled into this show"
"The Weatherman is a delight ... Kiki has died and been sent to purgatory, a rather pleasant place full of interesting boxes, suitcases and a machine which controls the weather. The result is hilarious as he explores the boxes – there is a lovely gag when plumbing the depths of one that promises much - the hand plunges through the bottom and ends up grabbing what might be the contents, much to Kiki’s surprise. He also works wonders with a red silk dressing gown."
"Kiki's acts always offer an unexpected twist to the show - funny, innovative and perfectly delivered - all of his acts provoke lots of oohing and aahing as each element unfolds usually followed by loud enthusiastic cheering and clapping! What more can you ask for?"
Kinky & Quirky - Devon
"Kiki brings a different kind of burlesque to the stage accompanied by his puppets. A wonderfully entertaining performance, Kiki sends the crowd into a wave of laughter and finishes with an 'encore' - a true performer and entertainer, with his parody of tease and strip, he is worthy of a first place...!"

“...even adult puppetry from the ‘King of Furlesque’ Kiki Lovechild”
Bodyform (yes, Bodyform)
"The talented Kiki Lovechild ... a touch of class"
"A pick of the best... although he seems to be missing some toes"
"Then came Kiki Lovechild, a quirky sexy entertainer with a sick sense of humour and many performance skills; I loved his use of puppetry, shadow puppets and a showgirl ostrich peeking from feather fans and posing with attitude. I loved his hot and humorous strip, and his battery powered pasties were the icing on the cake."
"Left the audience asking 'How the f**k did he do that?' Astounding"
"Burlesque with a difference, bringing some parodic humour to the show"
