Edinburgh Festival Fringe theatre review: Violence of the Lambs, reviewed by The Scotsman’s David Pollock

★★

Philadelphia’s Chris Davis ­is an amusing character comedy performer who’s created a compelling character in Marcus Livengood, with his urgent drawl, degree in comparative zoology and belief that the animals are about to rise up against us, founded on popular news, internet research, spurious graphs and devotion to the late Steve Irwin.

It’s a fun diversion, but there’s a slightness and a lack of resolution to the script, and the roadside yurt space isn’t the best – not Davis’s fault, of course.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters (Venue 272), run ended
