Be their guests as they improvise lyrics on the spot about your hobbies, your grandma, your love life, your deepest secrets – even your cat.
They might look odd – a madcap couple in waistcoats and corsets and strange painted faces – but that is part of their charm.
Enjoy a wacky hour of slick improvised lyrics, combined with joyful character comedy and a cavalcade of musical styles.
Sylvia Bishop and Dylan Townley formed the Peablossom Cabaret in 2013 after meeting at Oxford University.
The pair starred in the Oxford Imps and wanted to use their short-form Whose Line is It Anyway? -style improv skills in the cabaret style.
Townley explained: “We have developed characters that improvise, instead of being ourselves on stage. We hope that adds an extra dimension of comedy for the audience and, if nothing else, some gorgeous curtain fabrics to admire in our dress while we sing about your pets.”
Added Bishop: “The improv we grew up on was basically people in jeans and t-shirts being funny on the spot. But we thought: What if we do that in early 20th Century Paris? With crazy costumes and a bunch of instruments?”
Peablossom Cabaret have performed across the UK, the USA, the Netherlands and had sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Between them the duo play piano, flute, acoustic guitar, accordion, piccolo, bass guitar, tuba, bass trombone and drums – and both are acclaimed freestyle comedy rappers.
