East End Cabaret: Notoriously Kinky (5*)

Ian’s Review…

We’d heard good things about this show, there were some great reviews, and it was a runner up in the TO&ST award (the fringe Cabaret prize) along with Creative Martyrs and Lady Rizo, who we both loved.  So we bit the bullet and bought full-price tickets.  Expectations were high.

East End Cabaret did not disappoint.  A delightfully sinister and unnerving duo with a wonderful stage presence.  They are musically brilliant and while their songs are obscene, they are exceptionally clever too.  They are also very, very funny.  With themes including virginity, accidental necrophilia and the “danger wank”, they gleefully step beyond the edge of decency!  The relationship between the characters is exquisite and excruciating.

We grinned and laughed our way through the performance, and loved every minute of it.  We will be back next year (full price or not!) and the only reason we’re not going back tonight is that we already have tickets for something else.  It was that good, and that makes it my first 5* review of the year.

Quite simply brilliant.

Ruth’s Review…

I cannot speak more highly about this show, it was fantastic.  An easy five stars, the best one I have seen so far,  Brilliant. Essentially a singing act, the two performers have charisma, excellent voices and impeccable comic timing.  The songs are filthy but always have a clever spin.  It went far too quickly.
