Kissing the Goldfish

Kissing The Goldfish

Cabaret seems to have bloomed at this year’s Fringe but Charlie Bicknell and Sebastian Michael are no strangers to the provocative genre, having performed at a number of previous Fringes. With a selection of various numbers – including a Sweeney Todd mixed with German medley and Grieg’s ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ with added lyrics – they provide a good diversity of songs; However, the singing, unfortunately, is sub par, and too few moments of the show are funny, most of the material merely raising an eyebrow. The show is perhaps redeemed by the excellent keyboard skills of musical director David Harrod but generally, this is a rather average performance.
