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

Jojo Bellini – Crash Bang Cabaret | The Stand Comedy Club 2 | 2-27 Aug (pictured)
We love Jojo Bellini, who this year presents what’s described as a hilariously naughty cabaret about car accidents, kink and cucumbers. “Who is this woman?” asks the blurb, “Where has she come from? How did she recover from such a crippling car accident?” Perhaps you’ll find the answers to these questions (though I make absolutely no guarantees) if you skip along and book your tickets for this fabulous and funny show.

Tomas Ford – Craptacular | Gilded Balloon Teviot | 2-28 Aug
Another TW favourite is “International cabaret sex god” Tomás Ford who offers up this collection of the trashiest pop songs of all time “in ways you never asked to hear them”. You don’t even have to take our word for it as to how brilliantly entertaining this chap is, because he is critically acclaimed – by other critics, obv – everywhere he goes.

The Gin Whore Tour | Paradise In Augustines | 21-27 Aug
Okay, I admit it, this isn’t strictly a TW favourite. I picked it because gin is my favourite, and I couldn’t resist a show that has “warning: alcohol will be served” as part of its Fringe listing. And, you know, it’s educational, because as well as getting to taste four lovely gins, you also learn about the history of this magical liquor. See you there.
