JUDGEMENT DAY

Dan, Phil, Scott, Nick


Hello! Dan and Phil here at the end of our talent hunting quest (we're still trying to make our eyebrows dance).

It's been an absolutely mental but amazing week where we have seen things we never thought we'd experience in our life times, and a couple things that were probs a bit rubbish, but mostly amazing and mental. (and magic!)

We've spent the last couple weeks wading through a sea of auditions people sent into us and Scott and at times it was actually reallyreally hard to decide who to let go and who to put forward as there was a lot of genuinely impressive talent! We now know the rush Simon Cowell must feel every time he decimates somebody's hopes and dreams.

Our personal favourites from the week have been Isaac's Rapping Mum Sam (Dan's) and the Danger Opera couple, Nara and Peter complete with blunt oranges (Phil's) and they will be joined by the equally confusing and awe-inspiring Ela of the dancing eyebrows and Sam the beatboxing impressionist.

The only downside was having to let go of some awesomely talented people like Jamie the singer and the extreme hula hooping Sarah (who we think could very possibly form a very successful interpretive dance act in the future) but at the end of the day it's all Scott and Nick's fault this is the Fun and Filth Cabaret and when we said we wanted bizarre talents, THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE.

We will now begin kilt shopping and look forward to showing you all what goes on behind the scenes at Radio 1's Fin and Filth Cabaret at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with Scott and Grimmy! How exciting.

Phil and Dan

Cabaret Is Back!

Scott Scott | 10:47 UK time, Friday, 20 July 2012

Since 2009, we've spent a week every August at the Edinburgh festival. Last year we put on a week of cabaret shows celebrating the best and weirdest things you can see at the Edinburgh Festival in our Fun and Filth Cabaret!

It's my favourite thing we do of the year, so if you want to go to the Edinburgh Festival this year I suggest you go between then 13-17 of August because that is when we are there, doing our show for a week and in the evenings the Fun and Filth Cabaret will return for a second year, this time with more filth (hopefully)!

We're also giving YOU the chance to appear among the best, most wonderful and weird acts in Edinburgh, on stage with us, from your bedroom!! Find out more by watching the video of our new cabaret talent scouts, YouTube superstars AmazingPhil and danisnotonfire!
