About this event

This event is now sold out!

Why not take a look at the other Cabaret Nights – vintage Lili La Scala, goreous and mordant Dusty Limits, or raucous and riotous Myra and her ad-Myras! Click here for full listings.

Critically acclaimed musical satirists Bourgeois & Maurice make a triumphant return to Watermans with their out-of-this-world Edinburgh Fringe smash hit.

Digging their shellac nails deep into our post-modern, post-gender, post-Brexit world the demented duo deliver their most hilarious, scathing and joyfully cynical show yet. Riotous original songs meet hyper surreal, high fashion, in this provocative, thought-provoking and hysterical catwalk through the quagmire of current affairs.

Drawing on a stellar creative team to deliver glorious costumes, visuals and light-up-things, this really is a feast for the eyes — like a Kanye gig with smaller budget and bigger egos.

Born from London’s cabaret and club scene in 2007, Bourgeois & Maurice are recognised as one of the most exciting music satire double acts working in the UK today. This, their latest show, was one of the top twenty best reviewed comedy shows at Edinburgh Fringe 2016 according to research by British Comedy Guide.

Don’t miss B&M at their furious, fabulous best, in our intimate theatre.

DINNER & CABARET DEAL – The Guru Tandoori Kitchen is laying on a fabulous all-you-can eat feast, a 3-course Indian buffet for just £14.50 when purchased with a cabaret ticket. Simply add this option when you by your tickets, and remember to state how many you require. You can download a menu here
