Stagefright Comedy: Ian D Montfort Vs. Ivan Brackenbury / Comedy

Wed 22Jan
7:30 PM

Note: This event has finished

 

Ian D Montfort

“Ian D Montfort, is a spookily skillful, wonderfully observed and hysterically funny character who contacts dead celebrities with incredible results. A monster hit at the Edinburgh Fringe” ***** Time Out London

“The style of the act is genius – if it works, it’s impressive, if it doesn’t work, well it’s all part of the joke” **** Chortle

“…the character remains hilarious even as the tricks become remarkable. It is two shows for the price of one: pin-sharp character comedy and metaphysical magic to boot” **** Guardian

Comic spirit medium Ian D Montfort will be performing material from his recent critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival show “Unbelievable”.  Last year, character comic Tom Binns- the man behind everyone’s favourite hospital radio DJ Ivan Brackenbury, wowed the audience with his mind-blowing spirit medium skills in front of a live audience; The show was a critical success and one of the most talked-about cult hits of the festival.

He recently appeared on his own radio 2 special alongside Melanie Sykes.

In ‘Unbelievable’ there will be a demonstration of Ian’s mediumship ability but that will be part of a wider Pseudo-Science Lecture.

Pseudo-Science picks up where the old traditional science has failed. Old Traditional Science can not find any proof  for things like Past Life Regression, Astral projection, fairies, ESP, Homeopathy and Spirit Mediumship. Ian will demonstrate that with Pseudoscience you don’t need proof you just need desperate need to believe.

Having got the hand of contacting the dead, Tom is back doing what he does best- creating masterful character comedy. Mixing wonderfully observed comedy with spookily skilful audience interaction and faintly inexplicable clairvoyant revelations. Celebrated by sceptics and believers, audiences and critics alike, Ian D Montfort is ready to showcase his jaw-dropping talents.
