After festival headliners the Manic Street Preachers and Noel Gallagher and his Flying Birds closed Latitude 15 with anthemic hit after hit, there was only way to bring a terrific festival to a close. Part game show, part variety show and part dirty disco Miss Behave’s Gameshow has the spirt of the best cabaret; a touch of glamour, a frisson of danger, a sprinkling of naughtiness. It was exactly the tonic for a tired, sun-kissed crowd to have one last hedonistic night before tents were taken down and normal life resumed.
Split into those with I-Phones and those without, the two teams are asked to compete in a number of rounds and challenges with a special prize for the winning team. From name that tune to downing of pints and ‘what will people do for a point’, there is a simplistic charm to the work. Our host Miss Behave claims the world is fucked so we might as well enjoy it and it is very rare to feel a tent so in unison with each other.
The game show is so addictive that the turns could almost seem like an afterthought but they ensured that there was enough subversion, drag turns, smutty humour and naked flesh on display to satisfy gay, straight and everyone who identifies in-between. The special prize is big enough for the whole audience to enjoy, a final cathartic moment before the guilty pleasures ran around the tent and people danced the night away.
