His Eyes Were Like Oysters

Imagine The Mighty Boosh without the mellowing constraints of consistent characterisation and mainstream success. Oyster Eyes’ sketches are a bewildering tissue of pop culture references, surreal concepts and non-sequiturs gummed together by dour, anti-comic disco DJ Alan Starr. While there are undoubtedly some unconventional ideas on display here, the show revels just that bit too much in its own oddness.

The Caves, 556 5375, until 29 Aug, 6.15pm, £7 (£6).

You have a tiny penis. I have a tiny penis. Come and see our tiny penises. 'They had tiny penises' (Sporty Spice, 1997). A girl who looks like Barbara Streisand and a boy whose eyes are like oysters have organised a surreal and hilarious comedy show for the Edinburgh Fringe. You should definitely come and stare at it.
