Description

Serious satirical silliness, songs, democratic participation and fascist entertainment. Join us for some jovial celebration of high-functioning democracy. Retrospective foresight calls for a little cabariot. Ukulele, cello, bowler hats, a little Weimar Kabarett for these curious times. From 1883 to the present day, the Creative Martyrs have been singing songs of wry observation and suggestions of repeating histories. So fortunate we have all learned from our mistakes, the world is a more peaceful and kinder place, myriad wonderful futures await. Two hours, two venues, old songs and new. Do join us...

This is one of the best shows I have seen in all my 7 years of visiting the Fringe shows.

I have greatly enjoyed the hour I spent with the Martyrs and highly recommend the show to whoever wants to experience some true art - and be thoroughly entertained at the same time.

I first "experienced" this duo when they performed in a show with Richard Wiseman a few years ago. Since then I've seen them pop up in various cabaret shows over the years and they're always fantastic. This show was equally fantastic. Part dark humour, part thought provoking, part silly fun, this is an hour (or so) of songs from their incredible repertoire. Make a point to go and experience them in an intimate venue.
