ThreeWeeks Co-Editor Caro Moses helps you navigate the Festival with her Three To See tips. This time some top cabaret.

Peter And Bambi Heaven – The Magic Inside | Assembly George Square Gardens | 4-28 Aug (pictured)
I’m reliably informed that this show is both funny and fabulous, which is no great surprise given the award-winning/nominated team behind it. Asher Treleaven and Gypsy Wood play “Australia’s most deluded dancing magicians”. Go on, they had you at “deluded dancing magicians”, didn’t they? I’d book your tickets quickly to beat the rush.

Tomas Ford’s Craptacular | Sweet Grassmarket | 4-28 Aug
One of TW’s long term favourite cabaret types Tomas Ford returns with a show with a marvellous title, which will feature a set of the “worst songs ever”. He’s a veteran of cabaret, a Fringe regular, an award winner, and a provoker of five star write-ups from our reviewers. If you haven’t seen him perform yet, then frankly, it’s about time you did.

Roulston & Young – Songs For Lovers (And Other Idiots) | Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters | 4-28 Aug
If you want funny and clever songs from a talented and proven duo, then this pair are an entirely safe and super bet. Michael Roulston and Sarah-Louise Young are both completely brilliant and have won lots of acclaim and awards. Apparently The Stage have described them as “A Flanders And Swann for the 21st Century”, and I think I would probably agree with that. Don’t miss this, or the other show they are responsible for, ‘Cabaret Whore Presents… La Poule Plombee’.
