Thanasis Petroyiannis is best known as his iconic character A Man To Pet. In Thanasis’s own words, A Man To Pet is “is a Man that likes to pretend that is a sexy woman in a very funny way.” Alluring sexiness and humor, along with twisted glamor and a fiery attitude, are the mainstays of his act. And while Thanasis is quiet and shy in person, A Man To Pet is a total force of nature when he’s on stage. His performances are known for their outlandish and spastic movements, outrageous outfits, and crude prosthetics. A Man To Pet has performed in some of dalston’s most iconic venues and was the main act in Dalston’s unique supper club the pale blue door, releasing a 2014 calendar and being shot by nick knight for the 30th anniversary of ID Magazine are just some of the things that make him so unforgettable

Bica is a door whore extraordinare, a pissy club promoter and writer of horrendous articles for KCTV. She was born foreign with a spoonful of bin-juice fed to her intravenously. This might have affected her coping mechanisms, her general way of living and her rather bizarre train crash kind of thoughts. She is mainly interested in queues in gay clubs and any form of gay sex, mainly lesbian kind.Apart from gay sex, her main interest lie in gay clubs, naked table dancing, vegetable ploughing, nuns and guns, meat eating, crushed cocoa plant sherbet , all kinds of arty farty bullshit and being a massive dickhead. On purpose. She more then excels at the last one and we all hope this general assholery will come across rather fabulous in her everyday life
