Oyster Eyes make the Mighty Boosh look sane and boring, according to the British Comedy Guide. Intrigued? Pop along to their new show at the Edinburgh Fringe - or find out a little more about them as they answer our 10 Quick Questions...

Pitch your Edinburgh show in 25 words or less.

An honest medley of some great sketches and some greater times. If you like polo-necks and rhythm, this is definitely the show for you.

Your best Edinburgh moment?
There was half an hour last year when all four of us weren't crying at the same time.

And your worst?
A madman came backstage and tried to force Phoebe to take his Scotch egg.

You've got one hour free in Edinburgh - what do you do?
Go and watch some amazing shows like Jamie Demetriou's People Day, Mae Martin, Sheeps, Pattie Brewster's Friendship Venture, Totally Tom, Checkley and Bush's Comedy Riot! and Nick Mohammed.

Which Edinburgh landmark/venue/place would you give a five star review to?
Leven's restaurant. It's the best food there ever was.

Give us a secret Edinburgh tip!
If you fancy a confidence boost during the Fringe, Liam will be pretending to flyer for us, but actually just using it as an excuse to flirt with everyone from around 2pm to 7pm every day on the Royal Mile.

Deep-fried haggis or deep-fried Mars bar?
How about deep-fried chicken? Now, there's an idea for a business.

Kilt or trousers?
Skirts.

Arthur's Seat or Arthur Smith?
Arthur's Seat, please.

Complete this sentence: “In Edinburgh, we will be mainly...
...crying and performing."

Oyster Eyes Presents: Some Rice is at 22.25 at the Underbelly, 3-26 August (excluding 14). Find out more and book tickets here.
