Description

In their fabulous, elegantly refurbished and dead-central venue, clutching a stack of freshly minted songs and sketches, cabaret veterans Kit Hesketh Harvey and James McConnel return to the festival with their usual witty and sophisticated up-to-the-minute examination of almost everything – from Putin to Pampers, Macron to mackerel – and with only the vaguest of nods to good taste and propriety. ‘Achingly funny’ (Times). ‘Cabaret geniuses at the top of their game’ (Cabaret Scenes).

Sardines magazine (4/5 stars) 32 days ago

For most of their audience, the Kit and McConnel cabaret show is an annual fixture, and for Kit Hesketh-Harvey this is the 40th year at the Fringe. He is in his element with an audience in a small room and his pianist co-star James McConnel seems to be getting a greater share of the limelight now.

Theirs is certainly an old school approach – the ghosts of Flanders & Swann hover over their voice and piano endeavours – but...

On a dreary Edinburgh afternoon, what better place to head to than the elegant Radisson Blu Hotel on George IV Bridge for an hour of banter (nay, badinage), mirth and music with Kit Hesketh-Harvey and his partner in rhyme and song, James McConnel. This is Hesketh-Harvey’s 40th successive year at...
