Hello!

Please fill out the form below if you want to apply to perform at an upcoming Rule 34 Club show or party.

You’ll notice our application form is extremely detailed. It has to be! Rule 34 Club shows involve a diversity of people and ideas, resulting in pieces that are funny, outrageous, highly sexual and sometimes explore intense themes and sensitive topics that may be triggering to some people. Our fearlessness is our point of difference.

While we try not to censor, we need to keep you you, the audience and Rule 34 safe by making sure your content fits within our guidelines. Having all of this information upfront means we can understand your intention and apply content warnings where possible.

You can help us reduce risk by spending 10 minutes filling out the form below in detail. We appreciate your understanding.

If you have a vague idea for a performance, or you want us to book you on our books for gigs outside of Rule 34 shows, or you have a question or feedback about the form below - email hellorule34@gmail.com

If you want to tell a 5 mins or less story as part of our Open Mic section (OPEN MOUTH) - click here. Please note OPEN MOUTH is not a paid position but you will receive a free ticket to the show.

Thank you!

So… you want to perform at Rule 34 Club?

Rule 34 means “if it exists, there is porn of it” and that is at the core of every single show we have.

Rule 34 shows should always be strange but sexy… gross but erotic… funny but frisky… disgusting but captivating. Show people something they haven’t thought of before. Subvert and pervert the norm! Get political! Take something bland and develop a whole bizarre and horny narrative around it.

Check out our GALLERIES to see the images from the past shows.

Whether you’re a seasoned performer, a newbie or you’ve never done a show, Rule 34 is an excellent place to do a show. If you’ve ever been in the audience at one of our shows, you’ll know that the atmosphere is electric - it’s really something special.

Rule 34 is for performers of all ages (18+), all genders, all sexualities and all abilities.

Types of performance we love: SKITS, spoken word and storytelling, really bent and bizarre burlesque, weird party tricks, kink & fetish, blood, bodily fluids, beyond drag, sick humour, performances that command attention and slap you in the face, nudity, filth, kooky erotica, wtf porn, weird gameshows, films and projections, shows that use more of the space than just the stage, DIY everything!

We’re not so hot for: classical/traditional burlesque, really long shibari performances, straight up lip syncing and not much else, traditional circus and magic tricks, karaoke UNLESS YOU TAKE THESE AND PERVERT THEM INTO SOMETHING RULE 34!

WE HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR: Whorephobia and anti-sex work, racism, ageism, cultural appropriation, fat phobia, transphobia, queerphobia, ableism, bullying or generally punching down. If you need any more information about what these might look like, just ask us.

General guidelines for your show:

  • Your show should be 4-7 minutes long. 10 minutes absolute max.

  • Rule 34 is all about pushing yourself and the norm. Are you known for a particular type of performance? Use our stage as a place to experiment… push yourself. Take it to the next level!

  • THE WEIRDER THE BETTER!

  • In terms of nudity and what you’re “allowed to do”… anything goes within reason. Let us know what you’re thinking.

  • Please disclose any audience participation in the form below. Consent is necessary - even with audience members!

  • We provide backstage people to help with whatever you need, but your set up and pack down should be able to be done in a minute or two.

  • We also accept video submissions for projection (up to 10 minutes in length ) is fine. If your film is longer, we still may be keen! As filthy as you want!

  • Please only commit to a show if you genuinely plan on going through with it. Of course things happen sometimes, but it can be too heartbreaking on our end to have to replace performers last minute, especially as we try to have a diversity each month.
