ED2012 Cabaret Review: Kit And McConnel

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Cabaret Reviews

There’s something odd about this cabaret, though it takes a while to work out exactly what it is. Then it hits: it’s a little bit disconcerting to hear modern political satire and songs about ’50 Shades of Grey’ being crooned in a jazz style. That isn’t a criticism though, this show is brilliant because it’s so unexpected. Add in some pretty creative and wide-ranging ‘instruments’ (including playing bins as drums) and composing songs based around the names of audience members, and you get a great, old-fashioned good time. Kit and McConnel refuse to let anything about the show be taken too seriously, so be prepared to experience a wonderful, varied and hilarious cabaret show.

The Edinburgh Academy, 16-26 Aug, 6.45pm.
