Killer Bunny

scaled_Killer_Bunny_imageFINAL

Looking for some deranged fun? Then look no further than KILLER BUNNY, a show that is terrifyingly wholesome and, in parts, just plain terrifying.

This late-night cabaret is both bawdy and downright adorable, melding tomfoolery, multimedia, dark humour and some cute as hell tricks to great effect.

The result will see you laugh, whoop and, at times, cover your eyes. But more on the delicious terror that is Bunny later.

Essentially, Bunny is a loveable domestic goddess with a dark, dark secret: she’s a bit of a man-eater. No, scrap that… she’s a total man-eater.

The opening song sums her up perfectly as she lists all the great loves of her life and all the great ways these loves have met their demise. This litany should act as the perfect warning for the men in the audience, but they found themselves so beguiled by her charms that they willingly did what she asked.

And this is where the true charm of the show comes into play: Bunny has a consummate eye for picking audience participants who have the right amount of cocky and cute, men who add an extra layer of fun and campiness to the proceedings.

So yes, if you’re that kind of man, expect to be swooned with a blind date, or made to play soccer with your “wang”, or even help prove that even girls can throw. Knives, that is.

Yes, you read that right: Bunny is a knife-thrower. And what made this part of the show so adorable and frightening is that Bunny builds the tension to such a palatable level that you’ll literally be on the edge of your seat.

Fringe brings some great characters into our lives, and Bunny is right up there with the international talent this season has on offer in a show that is good harmless fun. Well, mostly harmless.

Love the show? Have your say!
