La Clique: David Omer as Bath Boy (via MySpace)
Was watching The Culture Show earlier this evening, with the lovely Lauren Laverne taking in the highlights of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - in particular burlesque/cabaret/variety show La Clique. All the acts looked amazing, but I nearly fainted when I saw... Bath Boy.
Bath Boy, aka Berlin-based David O'Mer, performs with aerial silks/straps in and over a bath full of water, splashing the front rows as he does. He's a fine figure of a man - a fine figure of a man dripping wet - and it's VERY sexy. Well, it does it for me anyway - and it's all more sexy because he keeps his jeans on throughout. So it's OK for a single, straight, red-blooded, Christian gal to get all flustered about, I reckon. ;)
