Three To See 2012: ThreeWeeks cabaret favourites

Eastend Cabaret

ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses recommends three ThreeWeeks favourites from the Fringe’s cabaret programme.

EastEnd Cabaret (pictured)
As they point out in their Fringe programme blurb, EastEnd cabaret were something of a cult hit last year, and certainly won the approval of our reviewer, who awarded them a princely five out of five in her review, which contained the words ‘luscious’, ‘cracking’, and ‘genius’, amongst others. Get tickets to see this comical musical duo perform their original songs and improvisations before they do that cult thing and sell out.
EastEnd Cabaret, Underbelly Cowgate, 2-26 Aug (not 13), 8.50pm, fpp12. www.eastendcabaret.com

Piff the Magic Dragon in… Jurassic Bark
We’ve been big Piff fans for good few years now. And it’s no wonder, is it? A stand up magician, in a dragon costume, who could resist that? I’m not sure we even need to mention that his sidekick is a death-defying chihuahua called Mr Piffles… Though now we have, I expect you’re already booking your tickets.

Marcel Lucont: Cabaret Fantastique
And while we’re talking cult characters, get your ticket-ordering fingers ready for debauched raconteur Marcel Lucont’s Cabaret Fantastique. And hurry, because it’s only on three times, and I might have bought up all the tickets before you get there. Don’t despair if you don’t manage to secure a place, however; Marcel (pictured below) is also on every night in his solo comedy show at Underbelly.
Marcel Lucont: Cabaret Fantastique, Assembly George Square, 10, 17, 24 Aug, 12.00am, fpp16. www.marcellucont.com
