Paris is home to The Moulin Rouge but Melbourne prefers her cheeky little sister, The Moulin Beige.
Blending stand up comedy, cabaret and variety this old school vaudeville night will leave you feeling delightfully entertained.

The Moulin Beige, produced by deBASE productions, currently has a residency at The Wesley Anne in Northcote, where you can come and see the show on the First Tuesday of every month. On during the Melbourne Magic Festival, they’ll be hosting a special night that combines magic with vaudeville.
A comedy cabaret with a classic vaudeville feel where world- class variety acts and Melbourne’s most quirky comic performers present their routines, tried and true or experimental and new.
“A night of fun and frivolity!” Heckler
“It’s a treat of a night, especially where the level of talent is concerned” Australian Stage
“It started as a performance night in the lounge room of a big old house in Ashgrove, Queensland. A lot of us went to try out ideas for new routines there. Then it moved to “The Joynt”, a great little bar in South Brisbane under the William Jolly Bridge. And when I moved to Melbourne (in 2012) I decided to start it up down here. We had a residency at the Burlesque Bar in Fitzroy for the first 9 months and as of August 2013, we will be commencing a residency at The Wesley Anne in Northcote. We put it on once a month (first Tuesday) and we are also touring the show round to festivals and events.
It is a performance environment where a variety of comic forms all work side by side in the one line up. This is a great opportunity for performers to be influenced and inspired by a whole bunch of different styles and maybe to create new routines, characters and collaborations. What you see on the night is a wide variety of comedy routines.
Vaudeville is a form of variety show. And variety can include: magic, ventriloquism, puppetry, dance, circus, stand up comedy, musical comedy, character comedy and burlesque.
Our audience are comedy lovers who are looking for something a little different to a night of straight stand up. The Moulin Beige is truly eclectic and entertaining and has something for everyone.”
