The British Guide to Showing Off
Available on iTunes
Andrew Logan. British Artist. Living legend. And creator of the anarchic and utterly outrageous Alternative Miss World Show, a spectacular costume pageant and fancy dress party for grown ups. In The British Guide to Showing Off we are taken under Logan's glittering wing and given a joyous look at this most quirky and exotic subculture event. Loved the world over by celebrities and misfits alike, Logan has hosted the Alternative Miss World Show since 1972. Over its history, the show has both reflected and informed British arts and culture, pulling off the amazing feat of being beautiful, glamorous and kitsch all at the same time. Memorable highlights include artist David Hockney judging the first one, musician David Bowie not being able to get into the second and film director Derek Jarman winning the third. Featuring contributions from Brian Eno, Ruby Wax, fashionista Zandra Rhodes (who designed all of Andrew's hostess costumes), Richard O'Brien, Nick Rhodes and Grayson Perry, The British Guide to Showing Off is raucous, liberating and sexually charged and speaks to the outsider in all of us. For anyone who has ever wanted to break out.
