Yeti's Ed2016

This is exactly the kind of show that words like quirky and kooky were invented for. Enter Yeti’s bar, a bizarre cabaret full of weird accents, weird songs and even weirder costumes. From the nun-hating diva to the sleazy head-in-a-box magician, the whole show, by Fringe favourites EastEnd Cabaret, is innuendo-heavy and logic-light. The costumes are hugely inventive, and the interaction between the two performers feels comfortable and playful, though some of the songs themselves felt a little underwhelming. But the rest of the crowd clearly loved them, despite a frankly uncomfortable amount of audience hair-stroking. If the real world is making too much sense, head to Yeti’s for some silliness.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 29 Aug.
