Marcus Birdman (3 stars)

This article is from 2007.

Supporting his treatise that comedy should enjoy an unlimited target range, Birdman takes aim at everyone in general and no one in particular. His father, daughter, and religion all structure his musings, but he rails gaily en route, exhibiting easy confidence with an engaging manner. Though there was an impending sense of script, he shines brightest when shooting from the hip.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 27 Aug (not 13), 7pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7–£8).

Birdman takes aim and fires at everyone from his daughter to religion, in a show that works best when it veers off the script. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'
