Markus Makavellian’s International Order

Rhyming hysterics and poems about defecation

Markus Makavellian (aka Glasgow-based performance artist Drew Taylor) sets out to shock. But you’ll need more than an unnecessarily long opening poem about defecation to shock a Fringe audience. It’s not quite clear where this show begins or ends, and at times it’s little more than hysterics with rhyme, but Makavellian has his most impressive and amusing moments when regarding his own act with tongue firmly in cheek.

Underbelly, 0844 545 8252, until 29 Aug, 6pm, £6.50–£10.50 (£8–£9.50).
