Since its first show back in May 2007 The Wet Spot has become a main event on the Leeds and UK Burlesque & Cabaret scene. With top quality Burlesque & Cabaret performers from all over the UK, Europe and the USA, The Wet Spot combines a wide variety of sensational acts, alongside brilliant vintage style DJ’s and a great club atmosphere! It is easy to see why The Wet Spot :: Burlesque & Cabaret has become such a popular destination for a brilliant night out in Leeds!
Back in 2007 Ryvita Von Cheese wanted to see high quality, established Burlesque and Cabaret performers in Leeds…but when there wasn’t a night to tickle her fancy - she decided to do something about it. Ryvita Von Cheese wanted a night in Leeds featuring performances from awesome burlesque artists, vocalists, live bands, fire eaters, magicians, comedians, Chinese pole-acrobats and great DJ sets of classic 50’s Rock ’n’ Roll, Jump Jive, Doo Wop, Lounge and Swing to dance to til the small hours.
A seed was sown…and The Wet Spot :: Burlesque & Cabaret was born!
It was meant to be a one off event, but on May 4th 2007, when 150 people crammed into a room Upstairs at The Adelphi, Ryvita could see that the demand was there for an event of The Wet Spot’s calibre! The 2nd coming of The Wet Spot was held at The Library Pub in 2008 and proved to be another sensational night.
The show was going from strength to strength and a bigger venue was required. In the Autumn of 2008 The Wet Spot moved to Downstairs at The Wardrobe where it remained until July 2014 when it moved to it’s current home at Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen. The Wet Spot is clearly going stronger than ever!
Organizing, promoting, performing at and hosting The Wet Spot, is the inimitable - Ryvita Von Cheese. Inspired by Morcambe & Wise, French and Saunders and Carry On…Films. Ryvita performs cheeky & comedic Burlesque routines where she often ends up baring all or covered in trifle! She really is crackers…
The Wet Spot is thrilled to have International burlesque performer, actress and model Missy Malone as resident dancer for 2013. A hedonistic mix of 1950’s bombshell and rock chick, Missy is a highly accomplished and sought-after performer on the UK burlesque scene who has performed internationally and has graced the cover of several publications and campaigns. Missy is also the sole creator of the five star rated "Missy Malone & Friends Burlesque Revue".
The Wet Spot provides great high quality burlesque & cabaret entertainment, a fun club night and a friendly relaxed atmosphere for a brilliant crowd who just keep on coming!
